Lutheran Bishop of J’lem Munib Younan:
Spreading Arafat’s gospel of hatred and lies is part of
my official duties as the dhimmi Lutheran Bishop of J’lem
Norwegians keep trying to make a name for themselves internationally, and the Tundra Tabloids is more than happy to oblige them. Just last year it was the NTNU university dean, Torbjørn Digernes, who not only organized a panel of anti-Israel speakers to participate in a lecture series on the Middle East conflict, he also organized a vote on whether to boycott the Jewish state or not.
Only after a local and  international outrcy over the stupid move, did the university dean back track and say that he was never in favor of the motion being passed. Whatever. The main thing was that he allowed such an event to even take place, and as an acting dean, even took part in the process of arranging the list of speakers, which included the psuedo historian and Israel hater, Illan Pappe.
Now there’s Bishop Tor B. Jørgensen, who, along with his fellow Norwegian bishops, recently paid a visit to Israel to “show solidarity with the Christians in the area, and also see the holy places“. The bishop is now upset over the plight of the Christian Arabs living in Muslim controlled areas of Judea, Samaria and Gaza. They visited the area at the “invitation from Bishop Munib Younan of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and in the Holy Land.”
The Bishops are happy as clams over their trip to the ME region
everyone that is, except for Tor, he’s full of hatred for Israel instead
The situation for the Christian Arabs in Palestianian controlled areas, is one of constant pressure and anxiety, due to the threats the Muslims place on that tiny community. That pressure, more than anything else, explains why these Arabs are leaving in droves from their traditional areas for elsewhere. It’s exactly the same reason why Christian Arabs are leaving from other areas in the Middle East, from Iraq, Lebanon, Egypt, Syria and elsewhere, it’s due to the pressure from Islamic fundamentalists, not Jews.
Here’s an interview with Justus Reid Weiner, an international human rights lawyer who states:
“The human rights crimes against the Christian Arabs in the disputed territories are committed by Muslims. Yet many Palestinian Christian leaders accuse Israel of these crimes rather than the actual perpetrators. This motif has been adopted by a variety of Christian leaders in the Western world. Others who are aware of the human rights crimes choose to remain silent about them.”
Dhimmitude and Persecution
In Weiner’s view the crimes committed against Christian Arabs result from a way of thinking that dates back to the earliest days of Islam. “Traditionally, Christians and Jews were given an inferior social status known as dhimmitude in Islam. The dhimma is a legal contract of submission that was imposed upon the indigenous non-Muslim populations in regions conquered by the spread of Islam. Although Jews and Christians were not forced to convert to Islam, they were not treated as the equals of Muslims.
“As dhimmis, Jews and Christians were subjected to both legal and cultural restrictions under Islamic law.[1] For example, Muslims could ride horses whereas Christians and Jews were limited to donkeys. Or, Muslims were permitted to wear garments of fine cloth while Christians and Jews were only allowed to wear clothing made from coarse fabric.
“To this day, Muslim attitudes toward Christians and Jews are influenced by the concepts and prejudices that dhimmitude has spawned in Islamic society. In Iraq, for example, the ancestral community of Chaldean Christians has recently become a target of vandalism, property theft, infringement of privacy, harassment, arbitrary and prolonged detention, kidnapping, rape, beatings, car bombings, torture, and even murder.
The fact is, you should never trust the words of someone leading a minority community in the middle of a hostile environment, we see it all the time, whether its Jewish leaders in Iran, Turkey or Norway, or Christian Orthodox leaders during the Soviet era, they have conflicting allegiances, and can’t be counted on to tell the truth. Read the interview of Justus Weiner, its an eye opener. KGS

NOTE: Not all parishoners are pleased with Bishop Jørgensen’s hard leftist activism, read this:

Tor Jørgensen forgets that he is a bishop and is acting instead as a politician.

“Jørgensen’s criticism is, in other words totally out of proportion. How is it like when you are more interested in an initiative impact in the media than its actual content. We have written it before and repeat it now. If Jørgensen is very happy to be a politician, we encourage him to put down the bishop’s staff and seek membership in one of the regional parties. Although in this case he must therefore even be further out on the extreme left wing to find loyal supporters.”
