The Church of England is investigating a vicar accused of sharing an article on Facebook which blamed Israel for the 9/11 terror attacks in the US.
It is reported that Reverend Stephen Sizer posted a link to an article titled, “9/11 – Israel did it” and wrote: “Is this anti-Semitic? If so, no doubt I’ll be asked to remove it. It raises so many questions.”

The reverend has since taken down the Facebook post.
RT report: In a statement, the Church said it was a “matter of deep sorrow and shame” that Sizer promoted the article during the same week as Holocaust Memorial Day.
Jewish community leaders said the article was “unquestionably anti-Semitic” and “absurd.”
Hosted on Wikispooks.com, the article argues only the CIA and Israel’s Mossad were capable of executing the 9/11 attacks.
Of the two, Mossad had the most “compelling motive” because it wanted the United States to “destroy Israel’s enemies.”
When contacted by the Jewish News, the Surrey-based clergyman appeared to defend the post, asking them to provide evidence Israel wasn’t involved in 9/11.
According to the Jewish News, he said: “I would welcome articles you can recommend refuting the allegations.”
He added: “It is essential the public become convinced of what happened before and after 9/11. Inevitably the truth will upset many people if it is shown by further investigation that the official explanations are shown to be deficient.”
