After the Evil

The best case for Israel was put by an Anglican scholar, James Parkes, who put forward reasons that were little understood even by Jews at the time. Nevertheless, he acknowledged Palestinian suffering and believed it would need to be recognized and righted. After World War II, churches were slow to recognize the state of Israel but ‘Disregard for its safety and welfare is incompatible with concern for the Jewish people’. How far it is possible to go beyond a recognition in terms of international law to a theological basis is a disputed issue.
