Dear friends and co-workers for a Just Peace

 

Invitation to a Zoom conference on “Christian Zionism: A Threat to Christian-Muslim Relations” - DECEMBER 9th 2020.

 

The current trends in relationships between several evangelical groups and Zionist organizations have opened the pathways for them to collectively unleash political pressure in the US that shields Israel from accountability in its continued violations of international law.  In recent weeks, we are also experiencing what we may call ‘Muslim Zionism’, clearly based on a distorted religious and political discourse that rationalizes normalizations of relations with Israel at the expense of Palestinian rights.

 

About 62% of the world's Muslims live in Asia. Conversations among progressive religious groups and civil society have, therefore, become an imperative to counter the deadly designs of Christian Zionism in Asian churches and in global society at large. Christian Zionists eye the region as a region to swell Islamophobia and conflict. Asia with its tendencies for inter-religious, class and communal/conflicts must, analyze and contextualize the spread of political ideas that emanate from Christian Zionism and its prototypes in the region.

 

Goal of the Zoom conference

The webinar is intended to generate conversations, and challenge us as Asians to examine our views on Palestine and the role it plays in shaping Islamophobic discourses especially in the Asia  region. The Palestinian struggle against settler colonialism has been used by Christian Zionists and segments of the organized Zionist movement to drive Islamophobic discourses around the world and the time to address it is more urgent today than at any other time in the past.

Asians must now reinforce and enhance our role in advancing peace, justice, and dignity for the Palestinians as an urgent necessity. Together, let’s seek to explore the cause of justice for Palestinians.
