Foreign Affairs Ministry: UCC decision to divest ‘immoral’

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs called the The United Church of Christ’s (UCC) decision to divest from companies operating beyond the Green Line "immoral" in a statement released  by a spokesman.

"People of faith and religion should work to facilitate peace and not try to hurt the side [Israel] aspiring for peace," said the spokesman.

The UCC, a liberal Protestant group numbering around 1 million, announced its intention Tuesday to adopt a resolution calling for the boycott, divestment, and sanctions of "companies deemed supportive of Israeli occupation in the Palestinian territories."
