The Jerusalem Declaration on Christian Zionism Historical Documents

The Jerusalem Declaration on Christian Zionism

Christian Zionism is a modern theological and political movement that embraces the most extreme ideological positions of Zionism, thereby becoming detrimental to a just peace within Palestine and Israel.
