A Word to the PC(USA) and the Course of Justice, by Rifat Odeh Kassis

June 20, 2014

In October 2012, Rifat Odeh Kassis, the General Coordinator of Kairos Palestine, wrote "A Word to the PC(USA) and the Course of Justice - On Divestment at the Presbyterian Church PC (U.S.A.) 220th General Assembly". As the PC (USA) 221st General Assembly is voting again on the same issue of divestment today, Mr. Kassis's letter is still spot on:

"People’s interpretations vary enormously in response to the recent decision made by the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), during its General Assembly in Pittsburgh, not to divest from specific companies profiting from the illegal Israeli occupation. Some view the vote as a defeat for the pro-justice camp within the church. Others view it as a win-win for both parties: the vote was 333 to 331, after all, with such a thin margin that both sides could claim victory." Read the document here
