Support for Israel (80042-C1-R9999)
Whereas, some conferences have adopted resolutions that would have United Methodist organizations stop doing business of any kind with a corporation that did business with Israel or supported Israel in any way; and
Whereas, these same conferences have no criticism of those groups which send suicide bombers into Israel, including even children below 10 years of age; and
Whereas, the actual effect of such resolutions is to support those who are trying to completely destroy the State of Israel;
Therefore, Be it resolved by the 2008 General Conference that the United Methodist Church believes that the State of Israel has a right to exist and this includes the right to defend itself against those who are trying to completely destroy the State of Israel.
