WASHINGTON, (PIC)– American Jewish organizations said Wednesday they have cancelled talks with liberal Protestant leaders after the churches’ protest against U.S. military aid to Israel.

The American Jewish organizations decided to withdraw from the national Christian-Jewish Roundtable. The dialogue group was founded in 2004 to ease tensions over escalating church protests against Israeli policy in the Palestinian territories.

The Jewish groups announced their decision in response to a request by several mainline Protestant leaders for Congress to re-evaluate U.S. military aid to the Jewish state.

The church leaders said in an Oct. 5 letter to Congress that Israel was guilty of widespread human rights violations against Palestinians that violated U.S. legal standards for recipients of military aid.

The United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism called the church claims “repugnant, regrettable and morally misguided.”
