Scottish Jews condemn the Church of Scotland

    Scottish Jews have condemned the Church of Scotlands decision to approve a controversial report on Israel, calling it “an unacceptable attack on Judaism.

    The Scottish Council of Jewish Communities said the Church had provided a veneer of theological respectability for what is effectively a call for the destruction of the state of Israel.

    The Church adopted the report at its general assembly attended by more than 700 ministers and elders.

    Welcoming the move, convener Rev Sally Foster-Fulton said the document highlighted the continued occupation by the state of Israel and injustices faced by the Palestinian people as a consequence.

    She stressed it was not an attack on the Jewish people.

    An initial version had questioned Jewish claims to the land of Israel but was rewritten after criticism from the Jewish community. Mrs Foster-Fulton acknowledged that some of the original language had been misguided.
