At the origine this synod was convened to discuss the critical situation of christians in arabic countries, due to rising muslim fundamentalism. Many christians have left their ancestral homes fearing for their lives. Now, why isn't the final statement about this issue ? The answer seem quite obvious to me: because the bishops are cowards. Criticism of Israels pays off well with the masters of the places were their flocks live, whereas criticism of arab gouvernments is much less tolerated by these gouvernments .... . So, couragously, they all got on Israels back. Shame on you.
