Anti-Christian Zionism

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]scotmoore) Forgive me if this has been posted here before, but I'm curious if anyone has any info as to the authenticity of this:

THE JERUSALEM DECLARATION ON CHRISTIAN ZIONISM

Excerpt - "Christian Zionism is a modern theological and political movement that
embraces the most extreme ideological positions of Zionism, thereby
becoming detrimental to a just peace within Palestine and Israel. The
Christian Zionist programme provides a worldview where the Gospel is
identified with the ideology of empire, colonialism and militarism. In its
extreme form, it laces an emphasis on apocalyptic events leading to the end
of history rather than living Christ's love and justice today.
We categorically reject Christian Zionist doctrines as false teaching that
corrupts the biblical message of love, justice and reconciliation."

I can't tell if this is just representative of the Episcopal churches in the region.  The information speaks as if it represents all "churches" in the region, which I find mildly difficult to swallow.

What does everyone think?
