Presbyterian Church to Call for Disinvestment in Israel-Related Firms

JewishPress Logo

The Presbyterian News Service reports that a panel within the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) passed a resolution on Friday calling for voting on disinvestment in multi-national companies that profit from non-peaceful activities in Israel-Palestine.

The General Assembly Mission Council recommended that the PC(USA) General Assembly, whose biennial meeting is scheduled for late June and early July in Pittsburgh, vote to pull out investments in three companies – Caterpillar, Motorola Solutions and Hewlett-Packard – “until they have ceased profiting from non-peaceful activities in Israel-Palestine,”.
