2. Press TV: Face To Face with Reverend Stephen Sizer 

The damning article Stephen Sizer linked to: 9/11, Israel did it

Notes: The Church of England has banned one of 
its vicars from all social media and taking part 
in any anti-Israel activities after he appeared 
to question whether Mossad had a role in the 9/11 attacks.
Reverend Stephen Sizer of Christ Church in 
Virginia Water, Surrey, posted an article 
entitled "9/11 Israel did it" on his Facebook 
page, where he has almost 2,500 friends and 
followers. He captioned the piece: "Is this 
anti-Semitic? It raises so many questions."
The Church promised to investigate the posting, 
which happened the week of Holocaust Memorial Day.
Reverend Stephen Sizer has had previous run-ins over his dubious Facebook posts
Bishop of Guildford, the Rt Revd Andrew Watson, 
said the Church took the complaints "extremely 
seriously" and that he did not consider Sizer to 
be anti-Semitic, but a man of "appallingly poor judgment".

"By associating with or promoting subject matter, 
which is either ambiguous in its motivation, or 
(worse still) openly racist, he has crossed a 
serious line. I regard these actions as indefensible."
Sizer has apologised and recognises the "gross 
insensitivity of their timing just prior to Holocaust Memorial Day".
But Watson said that Sizer's "strong but 
increasingly undisciplined commitment to an 
anti-Zionist agenda has become a liability to his 
own ministry and that of the wider church".
"Many who more moderately support the Palestinian 
cause, and share his critique of a particular 
brand of Christian fundamentalism, themselves 
find Stephen’s actions to be increasingly 
unhelpful and counter-productive, a fact he 
himself now recognises," he continued. "It is 
therefore my decision that Stephen’s work in this 
area is no longer compatible with his ministry as a parish priest."
Sizer has committed not to write or speak "on any 
theme that relates, either directly or 
indirectly, to the current situation in the 
Middle East or to its historical backdrop".
In addition, he "promised to refrain, with no 
exceptions, from attendance at or participation 
in any conferences which promote or are linked to 
this agenda; from all writing, tweeting, 
blogging, emailing, preaching and teaching on 
these themes, whether formally or informally – a 
prohibition which of course includes posting 
links to other sites; and from all background 
work in this area which may resource others to 
act as spokespeople in Stephen’s stead."
Sizer has claimed he will not return to social 
media for at least the next six months. The 
promise was made on the undertaking that Sizer 
would immediately resign were he to break the pledge, Watson said.
The controversial vicar has a long history of 
provocative Facebook posts and run-ins with the 
Jewish community in the UK, even holding a 
mediation meeting with the Board of Deputies in 
2013, aimed at healing relations.
Last year, Sizer addressed a conference in the 
Iranian capital Tehran, which discussed the 
"influence of the Zionist lobby", where 
conference panel sessions included "9/11 and the 
Holocaust as pro-Zionist ‘Public Myths’" and 
"Mossad’s Role in the 9/11 Coup d’Etat" and 
several prominent Holocaust deniers were in attendance.
Sizer was also disciplined for linking to an 
anti-Semitic website called 'The Ugly Truth' 
where an article declares; "God's people are all 
those who do His will, who are righteous, who are 
compassionate and who do not submit themselves to 
the false gods of voracity, vengeance, vulgarity 
and viciousness, which pretty much leaves the Jews out."
Watson said he was "hugely sorry for the hurt 
which has been caused to members of the Jewish 
Community, and I hope and pray that the storms of 
the past two weeks will ultimately serve to 
deepen and strengthen our relationship, one with another."
