Investment, not Divestment

The Presbyterian Church (USA), which previously had called for divestment from companies profiting from the occupation of Palestine, adopted a different strategy of engagement in the Middle East today with a decision to back selective investment in companies committed to peace in the conflict between Israel and their Palestinian neighbors.

The General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA) is meeting this week in Alabama.

Last summer the United Church of Christ adopted a similar policy to the one adopted this week by the Presbyterians and just this month the UCC and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) released a new guide book for churches committed to peace in the region.
