  1. I do not support withdrawing support from Israel. It is the Palestinian people that will not live with Israel. Israel has said all along, that it is willing to live side by side with any Palestinian state, as long as that state maintains Israel's right to exist. Palestine will not do that. They want Israel gone, period. Why would a Christian Organization not support the only Christian Nation in that region.

  2. Fly to the Middle East. Come and see Israel for the embattled democracy that it is, and then take a bus tour. Go to Libya, go to Syria, go to Iraq — and see the difference. And I would give them two pieces of advice — make sure it is an armor-plated bus and, second, don’t say that you’re Christians.

  3. Thank You for standing up to Israel. They must begin the process of living with Palestine.

  4. The action taken by the Church to devest in American companys that are not weapons and are not designed to kill makes no sense. Israel is our greatest ally and the only true free democracy in the middle east. This small piece of land was given back to them in 1948 and they had to defend it from almost every Arab country. This is land they lived on for thousands of years. Baron

  5. My heartfelt thanks to the Presbyterian Church for your vote to divest from companies & policies that harm the people of Palestine. We in the US have an unfortunate past with inequality and persecution as well as a mission of tolerance. Thank you for leading the way & prayers for peace.

  6. I do not support your efforts to divest and strongly feel this decision will harm our church and will be misunderstood. I am very sad. Praying for necessary healing.

  7. The action taken by the Presbyterian church is shameful. The Church belongs to God. Do you think that God takes sides? I suggest that the Presbyterian Church reconsider what they have done and change course. I am a Christian but I know that the Jewish Nation are God's 'special' people. But He loves ALL his children..... My advise to the Presbyterian Church.... Stay out of this conflict. Leave it to God.

  8. I grew up in the United Presbyterian Church -- literally as my father was a Presbyterian minister. I left the church when I found it taking a different path from the liberal progressive tradition I grew up in and supported. I am overjoyed to see the church take the initiative to support positions that are important in the 21st century. Same sex marriage and divestment from Israel are important, righteous issues. The church's leadership is enough to make me consider rejoining the Presbyterian community to lend my voice on this voyage forward.
