Withdraw from Campaign (81391-GM-NonDis)

The General Board of Global Ministries (GBGM) shall withdraw its membership in the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation and end any financial contributions, including staff participation.  

Rationale

As seen on this coalition’s website (www.endtheoccupation.org <http://www.endtheoccupation.org> ), this group dismisses Israeli security concerns, seeks “to isolate Israel economically, socially, and culturally,”  promotes “comprehensive divestment” against Israel, partners with activists opposing the Jewish state’s continued existence, and overlooks anti-Israel aggression while denouncing Israel with inflammatory rhetoric.
