Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology Center- A midwife of terrorism?

Terrorism is not something that just bursts into flame by spontaneous combustion. It has roots that grow from a seed. Unlike the American legend of Johnny Appleseed who planted seeds for good, terrorism's seeds are planted by those who wish to upset the world's apple cart through horrific acts of murder and mayhem. Sometimes they are planted and nurtured by organizations with fancy names.
The Boston Globe's Jeff Jacoby writes about one of those organizations, the Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology Center, in an article published on October 21, 2007, "Criticism Gone Too Far." In it he details Sabeel's anti-Semitic use of the centuries old charge of Deicide directed against the Jews and, by implication, the State of Israel.
How does the world react to the apparently well thought out and truthful sounding claims made by Sabeel and its leader the Anglican cleric Naim Ateek? Well, as outlined by Jacoby, some parts of the world greet those remarks with open arms and fall victim to lies.
Will Sabeel, Ateek, and their supporters one day acknowledge the harm they cause?

Criticism Gone Too Far

Terrorism does not make a difference among people. All groups and tribes should be united in the fighting terrorism and uprooted this bad omen phenomenon by cooperation of the government.
