Maximum Respect to David Hallam, a Methodist preacher preparing to sue the Methodist Church over claims it is using charitable donations to pursue a campaign of discrimination against Israeli Jews.
Maybe I should make a couple of things clear:
If the Methodist Church were pursuing a campaign against Israeli Jews I would be fighting it. I am 100% against discrimination against Israeli Jews (or any other Jews for that matter). But I have seen no evidence that it is true. I was at Methodist Council this last week and checked my understanding with people like Martyn Atkins (General Secretary/Secretary of Conference), Alison Tomlin (President and affectionately known as my Great Grand Boss), Chris Elliott (Secretary for external relationships) and Toby Scott (Head of Communications).
If I were fighting the Methodist Church I would not be doing it through the courts. See my detailed blog post.
It seems that others agree as David has gained so little support for his campaign and none of it from mainstream anything.
