Evangelicals Investing In Israel

[Media Source*]

(Ynet News) JERUSALEM - A Christian evangelical group based in Jerusalem is planning to launch a drive to invest in Israel in response to mainline church calls to withdraw investments from large corporations with business ties to Israel. [...]

In August 2004, the Presbyterian Church investment committee publicized a list of four international corporations which, according to the statement, support "the Israeli occupation" and threatened to sell the shares it holds in those companies valued at USD 60 million.

The Presbyterian Church apparently is the only denomination calling for divestment against Israel, which probably is an indicator as to how much the leadership (whoever they are) really understands their own religious text. Although other denominations who are upset with the Jewish state have steered away from the divestment idea, the rising hostility towards Israel by some churches should be confronted as anti-semitism is something that Christ himself would not tolerate.

(Ynet News) The ICEJ said it would announce active measures to counter the situation at a press conference later this week. [...]

The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem was founded in 1980 as a global Christian initiative to comfort the state and people of Israel "as mandated by Scripture," according to a group statement.

Organizations such as the ICEJ, Simon Wiesenthal Center and the International Christian Chamber of Commerce are encouraging people to invest within Israel although the best way to aid the economy would be to visit the nation (something Madonna is planning on doing).
