Presbyterian Church (USA) to Vote on Anti-Israel Initiatives in June

The Presbyterian Church is set to host their biannual meeting in June and plans to vote on several anti-Israel/pro-Palestinian initiatives. The General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church told TruthRevolt that they are expecting between 2,500 and 3,000 people to be in attendance.

Among the issues up for vote at June’s meeting is, “On Engaging Presbyterian to Witness for Palestinian Human Rights and for Ending the Occupation of Palestine,” “On Divestment from Caterpillar, Hewlett-Packard, and Motorola Solutions” and “On Affirming Occupation-free Investment in Palestine​.”

According to the Church’s website:

The General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) meets biennially in even-numbered years. It consists of commissioners elected by each of its 173 presbyteries. The GA is full of activities: business sessions, committee meetings, an exhibit hall, daily worship services, and mission tours sponsored by the  Committee on Local Arrangements.

The assembly acts on hundreds of items of business, which it receives through the reports and recommendations of various assembly entities, and through overtures from synods and presbyteries.

The 221st General Assembly (2014) will be held in Detroit, Michigan –  June 14 – 21.
