Shane thinks Biden’s approach to the Israeli-Hamas conflict is wrong:
Biden is wrong. We should never have unconditional support for Israel, or any other country. We must have unconditional love and endless compassion… but we should never support any country as it is poised to kill thousands of children and civilians. Punishing the people of Gaza for the evils of Hamas is wrong. The terrorized can quickly become the terrorizers. We must never stand with anyone that kills civilians and children, whether it is Hamas or the State of Israel.

Is this the reason the organization is there?:
Graham also has this to say about the Hamas-Israeli conflict:
Antisemitism is a cancer. As Hamas—who is responsible for killing over 1,000 Jews in Israel, raping women, decapitating babies, taking hostages, and even using the phones of civilian victims to video their brutal murders and sending the video to their family members—called for a “day of rage,” we are seeing blatant antisemitism displayed in protests on the campuses of many of our nation’s major universities. It’s shocking. They are ignoring the butchery that Hamas has committed. I hope donors to these schools will realize that their gifts are enabling this plague of antisemitism. One person told me that they would never give another dollar to their alma mater because of this. If you agree, let your voice be heard.
Albert Mohler links his work to Billy Graham:
Mohler on the Israeli-Hamas war. Notice he is the only person on the panel whose remarks he shares on Twitter. The thought of promoting the ideas of another panel member probably never crossed his mind.

A small controversy broke out on Twitter this weekend. Joey Cochran is a visiting professor of history at Wheaton College, the Conference of Faith and History social media director, and editor of the Anxious Bench blog. Frankly, I have no idea what this tweet connecting the “white gaze” and Just War Theory actually means. It sound like a lot of psuedo-intellectual blather if you ask me. Some, but not all, of the responses are just as bad:
Here were some of the responses to Cochran’s tweet:
