Is Zionism apartheid? Prasch challenges Sizer to public debate

Bible teacher Jacob Prasch has left a standing challenge on his website ( for a public debate with Stephen Sizer, the Vicar of Christ Church, Virginia Water, UK. Sizer is a vocal proponent of the notion that Zionism is apartheid and that the modern state of Israel does not fulfill biblical prophecy.

The statement from Prasch reads in part: “As an Anglican in a church ordaining homosexual clergy and with a Druid Arch Bishop of Canterbury now calling for Britain to integrate elements of Islamic Sharia, anti Zionists like Sizer in a church with a pro Islamic hierarchical agenda must be challenged.”

Prasch considers it “nothing short of ludicrous” the continued insistence by Sizer and elements of the Anglican Church in the UK that Israel is the major perpetrator of injustice in the Middle East; when all available evidences clearly demonstrate that Israel is the one country in the Middle East which assures the rights and security of its Christian population in the face of widespread persecution of Arab, Persian, Asian, and African Christians throughout the Moslem world.

“We are compelled by the evidence to regard Sizer as hypocritical and biblically ignorant. …It is also difficult for us not to additionally suspect Sizer of being a pseudo-academic fraud, but he at least deserves the opportunity to demonstrate otherwise in a public forum.” Jacob concludes.
