Church of England riles chief rabbi

LONDON, Feb. 17 (UPI) -- London's chief rabbi has lashed out at the Church of England over its decision to review investments in Israel.

Rabbi Jonathan Sacks accused the General Synod of damaging Jewish-Christian relations, the Times of London said.

In a 1,500-word article in Friday's Jewish Chronicle, the rabbi, known for his moderation and his distaste for public bickering, condemned the synod's action as ill-judged and said that "the timing could not have been more inappropriate."

"The immediate result will be to reduce the church's ability to act as a force for peace between Israel and the Palestinians for as long as the decision remains in force."
