The Protestant Consultation on Israel and the Middle East (PCIME) is a group of Christian clergymen, intellectuals and activists from Europe, North America and Africa who are committed to stand with the State of Israel and the Jewish people and support persecuted Christians and other minorities in the Middle East.
PCIME was established in November 2012 in Jerusalem following the publication of the "Statement on the Mainline Protestant Churches and the State of Israel
." This was the Concluding Statement from the Jerusalem Consultation on the Mainline Protestant Churches and the State of Israel, organized by the Jerusalem Liaison Comittee (November 5-8, 2012), Important presentations from the Jerusalem Consultation can be viewed on our YouTube channel.
PCIME is committed to a responsible, unbiased view of the Middle East. We represent the silent majority that does not hold anti-Israeli opinions and strongly objects to the activities of church officials and activists promoting clear anti-Israeli positions in the name of Christianity. We strongly object to efforts to delegitimize Israel and firmly support oppressed minorities in the Middle East.
We believe that God remains in covenant with the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. God’s intention is to bless them, and through them to bless others. We repudiate the “replacement theology” that claims Israel has no further place in God’s plans.
Our love for Israel does not contradict our love for other peoples in the region, including the Palestinians. They, too, have a place in God’s heart. PCIME believes it is possible to pursue justice and peace in ways that address the rights and needs of all peoples of the region.
An important part of our mission is to enable likeminded people to become active by acquiring reliable information and joining existing organizations that share our aims. To this end, in addition to the information provided on our website and Facebook page, we have collected links to other relevant websites in various countries and languages.
