Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Islamic Terror Organizations Condemn Classifying The Anti-Israel BDS Movement As Anti-Semitic

The Islamic terror organization Hamas issued a press release on Thursday condemning the German Parliament for defining the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement as anti-Semitic.

The BDS movement seeks to punish the nation-state of Israel by boycotting the country over its alleged mistreatment of Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip and West Bank.

It strives to isolate Israel at the international level in order to progress Palestinian political objectives and is “the most prominent effort to undermine Israel’s existence,” according to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).

BDS initially metastasized in the U.S. through college campuses. It has been linked to anti-Israel terrorist organizations and it is now supported by progressive members of Congress.

The German Parliament passed a non-binding resolution on May 17 which defined the movement as anti-Semitic. The resolution further pledged not to provide funding for any organization doubting Israel’s right to exist, as well as those that either call for the boycott of Israeli products or actively support the BDS movement, reported The New York Times. Moreover, the resolution restricted public space and support for groups associated with BDS.

“We, the Palestinian factions, strongly condemn the German parliament’s statement to criminalize the boycott of the Israeli occupation, especially the international boycott movement (BDS), and declare it a form of anti-Semitism,” Hamas wrote in the press release. “This statement comes as a great shock to our Palestinian people, who have been fighting for their freedom, independence and statehood, especially that BDS is a peaceful means aiming to put pressure on the Israeli occupation to end its occupation and stop its aggression against us.”

The press release contended that BDS is a “peaceful means” to exercise Palestinian’s “right to resist” and “freedom of expression.” It also argued that the resolution provides cover for Israel’s “racist policies and aggression” and promulgates a “historical fallacy and a violation of reality.”

“We look forward to the German parliament’s taking a bold decision to reverse this statement and even replace it with resolutions that support the right of our people to establish their independent state with Jerusalem as its capital,” the statement continued. “We eye for Germany’s continued support for our people languishing under occupation by all political and material means.”

Hamas is a notable Sunni Islamic fundamentalist group that has been designated as a terrorist organization by numerous countries and international organizations including the United States, Israel and the European Union.

Hamas signed the press release on behalf of “Gaza Palestine.” Thirteen other Palestinian organizations co-signed the statement as well, including U.S.-designated foreign terrorist organizations Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) and Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP).
