Ronald Stone, a presbyterian, is now immortal for having said that Muslims are easier to deal with than Jews. Yup, his comment was aired on TV and recorded. That’s right, folks, an elder in the Presbyterian Church, USA, said during a meeting with a leader of the terrorist group Hezbollah that Muslims are easier to deal with than Jews.
Now, the bloodthirsty Arabs have run with the story, like they always do.
See, the comment was aired on Arab television and recorded by the Middle East Media Research Institute TV Monitor Project, or MEMRI TV.
The meeting with the terrorist – Sheikh Nabil Qauq, the leader of Hezbollah in south Lebanon – occurred Sunday during a visit by a 24-member delegation from the Presbyterian Church, USA. MEMRI has a video clip of part of the meeting on its website.
What is a follower of Christ doing with a barbaric, detestable Hezbollah leader?
Fortunately, to their credit, three top officials of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) have written a letter to Jewish leaders with whom they met last month, renouncing a meeting earlier this week in southern Lebanon between Advisory Committee on Social Witness Policy (ACSWP) member Ronald Stone, a recently retired Pittsburgh Theological Seminary professor and the dirty representatives of Hezbollah.
Jewish rabbis wrote in response “We hope and pray that you will exercise the moral leadership required at this moment and repudiate these deplorable words spoken in the name of your church.”
