The level of Christian Aid’s support for a radical pro-Palestinian agenda (including the Christmas campaigns), which created the foundation for anti-Israel church divestment resolutions, was lowered significantly in the first half of 2005. However, Christian Aid’s July 2005 statement and its "Pressureworks" website mark a resumption of anti-Israel campaigning. Following the language used by the Palestinian media, Christian Aid’s statement also dismisses ’s disengagement without serious consideration of its significance. The brief mention of attacks by "Palestinian militants on Israeli civilians", in contrast to the earlier reports in which terror was totally erased from the context, is insufficient to correct the overall bias.

Similarly, the Pressureworks website, which posts photos and opinions supplied by radical NGOs such as ICAHD, presenting a highly distorted version of the events, and erasing context in order to promote its political goals.
