Position on Christian Zionism

You have probably received a letter from the Christian Zionists to support Jewish domination of Jerusalem.

We have replied to this contention below. We would appreciate it if you could find the time to answer this assertion by the Christian Zionists, and take a firm stand against any exclusive claims over Jerusalem, by any religious group, be it Muslim, Christian or Jew.

AS CHRISTIAN ZIONISTS (WHO CLAIM A MEMBERSHIP IN THEIR DENOMINATIONS OF ABOUT 100 MILLION PEOPLE) CALL FOR THE HEGEMONY OF JEWS OVER JERUSALEM, WE RESPOND BY STATING THAT THIS EXCLUSIVE CLAIM IS DETRIMENTAL NOT ONLY TO THE THREE GREAT MONOTHEISTIC RELIGIONS, BUT TO THE POLITICAL REALITIES OF THE MIDDLE EAST. WE SAY THIS AS THE REPRESENTATIVE BODY OF 900 MILLION CHRISTIANS ENCOMPASSING ROMAN CATHOLICS, EASTERN ORTHODOX, AND A MYRIAD OF PROTESTANT DENOMINATIONS INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE ANGLICAN CHURCH, THE EPISCOPALIANS, PRESBYTERIANS, LUTHERANS, QUAKERS AND OTHERS...

For the following reasons, elucidated below we cannot in good conscience support a contention of exclusive Jewish claim to the city of Jerusalem:

As believers in the one God, by whatever variant of name, we plainly state that fundamentally we all must live under the same LAW.
