End Coalition Support (60198-GM-NonDis-G)

The 2016 General Conference encourages the General Board of Global Ministries (GBGM) to withdraw its current membership in the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation through the General Board of Church and Society and to end any financial contributions, including staff participation.

Rationale

This one-sided political coalition’s website (www.endtheoccupation.org <http://www.endtheoccupation.org>) reveals that its agenda includes seeking “to isolate Israel economically, socially, and culturally,” and promoting “comprehensive divestment” against Israel, while overlooking anti-Israel aggression. Blaming only one side while ignoring the wrongdoing of Hamas, Hezbollah, and Iran will not advance the cause of peace.
