David Wilder retracts on CUFI article

Posted by Jewish Israel

As soon as David Wilder's CUFI report hit the net Jewish Israel received requests from the Hebron community and from others for information on the missionary personalities appearing in the photos as well as on the general content in David's report. The information was taken to Rav Dov Lior, who took the matter very seriously. We refrained from publishing a public report in order to give David an opportunity to reflect and retract. He has!

Kol HaKavod to David Wilder for a courageous and very difficult move. Jewish Israel is pleased that Akiva Powers of Magen was able to facilitate in this matter.

We hope that David and other activists and leaders, who work so hard for Am Yisrael, will take an even deeper look at the inroads evangelizing Christians have been making in Israel. We also hope David will take the time to investigate some of the other personalities who appeared with Jewish activists in videos and photos from recent CUFI related events.

Publications and blogs which are carrying David Wilder's original CUFI article should take note and replace the post with his thoughtful retraction....more

Wishing Klal Yisrael a meaningful Fast.

Found this today - and it's not accurate. I did not, anywhere in the Beware! article, retract what I wrote a week earlier in the CUFI article. Jewish Israel would have liked me to retract, and it makes a nice headline for them, but it's not true. I did not, and do not, take back what I wrote in the CUFI article. I stand by my original thoughts. David Wilder, Hebron
