(NEWS) Israel Can’t Use Bible To Justify Claims, Mideast Synod Says

"A meeting of Mideast bishops declared that Israel cannot use the Bible to justify territorial claims to land in Israel.

The final statement of the two-week Synod of Bishops of the Middle East in Rome that ended Saturday blamed Israel for the conflict between the Jewish state and the Palestinians.

It rejected the use of the biblical position of the Promised Land to justify Jewish settlement of the West Bank.

'Recourse to theological and biblical positions which use the Word of God to wrongly justify injustices is not acceptable,' the bishops said."
