Elle Dowd is a student at the ELCA's Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago. Two recent Facebook post by this student are posted below. The first contains a picture of Elle in or near Israel with a head covering and a closed fist up in the air. Part of her comments with this picture were:
"Our US tax dollars fund an occupation that is violently enforced, including the use of the same chemical weapons against the Palestinians that we choked on in St Louis during the uprising."
From Ferguson to Palestine, occupation is a crime."
You should read the whole post because not only does it proclaim a lie, saying Israel occupies "Palestine," but she makes no mention of the violence, terror tunnels, arson, knifing, rockets attacks and pedestrians being hit by cars, perpetrated by Palestinians.
"...we sacrificed Jakelin Amei Rosmery Caal Maquin and Felipe Alonzo-Gomez to the false gods of nationalism and security."
"...Christian counseling centers...torture lgbtqia+ children and call it 'reparative therapy,' leading to the death of countless children."
