Donald Miller’s Blood Libel—One Year Later

It’s his baby.

And it’s a year old.

Popular evangelical author (“Blue Like Jazz”) Donald Miller, one year ago today, wrote at his Storylineblog that the Israel Defense Forces murders innocent Palestinians. In a blog post titled, ironically, “The Painful Truth About the Situation in Israel,” Miller described a tour of the Palestinian territories. After an ever-so-brief nod to the terrorism Israelis live with 24/7, Miller wrote:

“But no conflict like this has a single side. We spent much of our time in the West Bank, interviewing Palestinian leaders. The stories we heard were heartbreaking. We had dinner with a woman whose mother was killed by Israeli guards after placing a rose on a tank. She was gunned down while sitting with her husband on their front porch later that week. We met with the assistant to the mayor of Bethlehem, a Christian man whose twelve-year-old daughter was killed sitting in the backseat of the family car while driving through an Israeli checkpoint.”

Did they really? Did the IDF murder a mother and a daughter?

I ask such a simple question because for one year, starting November 19, 2012, I have been asking Donald Miller to document the murder charges he’s placed at Israel’s feet. This is the same IDF, by the way, that dispatches teams around the world to provide disaster relief.

To date, one year later, Miller still hasn’t replied.

His blog post was filled with more invective for Israel, stoked by his quickie tour of tightly controlled Palestinian areas. The Palestinian leadership told him what they wanted him to hear. And he dutifully came back to America and parroted the propaganda.

Jews have suffered as the villains in the “blood libel” rite for centuries. Anti-Semitism is on the rise in Europe. Mein Kampf is still a bestseller in the Arab world. The UN issues a grossly disproportionate number of resolutions denouncing Israel.

And now evangelical leaders libel the Jewish state.

No one says a word.

I recently asked Miller’s assistant, Tim Schurrer (storylineblog.com), again, to provide documentation for Donald Miller’s painful blog/blood libel about Israel.

Now, he doesn’t even answer anymore.

Miller is one of a new breed of evangelicals—the New Evangelicals—who demonize Israel, and advocate for the Palestinians. To a man and woman, they parrot what the Palestinian leadership tells them. The net effect is the entrance of classic PLO propaganda, masquerading as the so-called “Palestinian narrative, into American churches.

That narrative is lethal, loathsome, and a lie.

In the meantime, Donald Miller’s blood libel has been in cyberspace for one solid year.
