Genizi pays particular attention to the controversy surrounding A.C. Forrest, editor of the influential United Church Observer, which constantly criticized Israel's policies and strongly supported the Palestinian cause, a position that led to a serious dispute with the Canadian Jewish community. Genizi also deals with the complications and ambiguities of the geopolitics of the Middle East and examines the dilemmas they pose for both the Christian and the Jewish conscience. The conflict over resolutions condemning Israel for accepting apartheid and maintaining systematic racial cleansing, adopted in the international conference on racism in Durban, South Africa, in late 2001, shows how explosive the controversy over the Israel-Palestinian crisis remains.
Haim Genizi is professor of history at Bar Ilan University, Israel, and the author of America's Fair Share: The Admission and Resettlement of the DPs, 1945-1952 and American Apathy: The Plight of Christian Refugees from Nazism, 1933-1945."

Editorial Reviews

"Genizi has produced a detailed and careful study. His book unearths much new material and adds a new chapter to post-war Canadian church history. It is extremely well-documented and presents a viable thesis on vexing and subtle issues in a generally fairminded and non-polemical manner." Alan T. Davies, professor emeritus of Religion, University of Toronto "Genizi examines a critical issue in contemporary geopolitics and religiosity and religious consciousness. This is a very significant contribution to research." Marilyn Nefsky, Sociology/Religious Studies, University of Lethbridge
