The Presbyterians Don't Speak for Me!



This past Friday, the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. voted to divest from stocks in three companies -- Caterpillar, Hewlett-Packard and Motorola -- which sell products to Israel. It was a sad day.

This vote will have little practical significance. The Presbyterian Church U.S.A. has fewer members than Christians United For Israel. And they are shrinking just as quickly as we're growing.

But this vote will have symbolic significance. By singling out Israel for condemnation, the Presbyterians will encourage the very forces that have prevented peace in the first place. This vote sends a dangerous signal that there is no price to pay for refusing to compromise with Israel -- if conflict persists, only Israel will be blamed.

Worst of all, this vote will send a message to Israel that America's Christians are abandoning her.

We know that nothing could be further from the truth. We know that the overwhelming majority of America's Christians stand firmly with Israel. But our Israeli friends won't know this unless they hear from us.
