Thumbs down
I'd like to personally condemn the Greek Orthodox Church in Israel. The Church's spokesman paid a solidarity visit to families of Arab suicide bombers in Israel on Easter Sunday. Arutz Sheva quotes him as strongly praising the increased power and strong spirit of the "Palestinian freedom fighters struggling against the Israeli occupation."
To offer words of comfort and support to families of suicide bombers, instead of the victims of suicide bombers, is unthinkably grotesque, an act unworthy of any religious institution.
