The United Methodist Church is holding its General Conference in Tampa. One of the most important, and unfortunately controversial, resolutions to be taken up is the Palestinians’ request for the world community to help them end the 44-year Israeli occupation.

We believe the Methodist Church’s proposed resolution to divest from multinational companies profiting from the Israeli occupation will aid in ending Palestinian suffering.
