SA’s Christian Friends of Israel calls on World Council of Churches to rescind anti-Jewish Rev Jerry Pillay’s appointment as Secretary-General

In 2014, Pillay vented over the  “exclusionary and violent character of the Israeli Zionist project”  whilst endorsing the extremist anti-Semitic BDS movement, whose goal is singlehandedly to destroy the world’s only Jewish State. In 2016, he spoke of how “Jewish leadership” influenced European countries to create a Jewish State “on the land of Palestine”. A man promoting such hatred towards Jews and their homeland, who promotes millennia-old conspiracy theories about “Jewish power” should not qualify for such an esteemed role at the WCC.
