PCUSA Israeli divestment discussion

http://www.christiancentury.org/article.php?articleid=139
Broyles' response is most impressive and persuasive to me. The divestment idea is a measured and appropriate response to an impossible reality. Lately it's really been dawning on me how the original creation of Israel was a creature of the European colonial worldview. The Palestinians whose land was taken away simply didn't register in that worldview. Certainly this line of thought is too much for a single blog post to flesh out, so I will have to think and discuss this issue in the future.
