An ecumenical note

Still, the Silence at Snapshots brings up the Israel Question in regards to the apparent ambivalence of mainline Protestant churches to the Fatah-Hamas War - the tossing of teenagers off rooftops, the murdering of men in front of their wives and children, and other varied enlightened practices of the Permanently Oppressed. Somehow this is all Israel's fault - as was the Black Death.

But this seems to be a top-heavy opinion. That is, the leaders of these Protestant churches hold this opinion, but not necessarily the members. A similarity with the Catholic Church - notably, the Vatican's denouncement of Israel defending herself against Hezzbollah attacks in 2006. Which made me wonder: What would they do if some whackjob started lobbing rockets into Vatican City?
