Join the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) in Boycotting Israeli Settlement Products

From the PC(USA) Office of Public Witness:

At the 220th General Assembly (2012), the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) voted by an overwhelming majority to boycott all products manufactured in Israeli settlements located in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. This action is part of the PC-USA’s longstanding commitment to bringing about a just and lasting peace for both Israelis and Palestinians. The boycott of these products serves as a nonviolent means through which Presbyterians can work for a peaceful solution to the conflict in Israel-Palestine. The effort is limited to private corporations benefiting financially from the occupation of Palestine, and is not against Israel. In a recent letter introducing the Boycott campaign to all Presbyteries, Grayde Parsons, Stated Clerk of the General Assembly writes, “The boycott is intended to contribute to justice and equal rights for all Palestinians and all Israelis, whether they are living in freedom, under occupation, or in exile, and we must offer our prayers to that end.”  For the full letter, click here.
