which denounces Israel as a “racist” nation which has absolutely no historical, covenantal, or theological right to the Holy Land. The report calls for the United States to withhold financial and military aid to Israel and for boycotts and sanctions against Israel. That’s not all. The report also endorses a Palestinian “right of return” and “apologizes to Palestinians for even conceding that Israel has a right to exist.” According to the press release, it also states that Israel’s history begins only with the Holocaust and that Israel is “a nation mistakenly created by Western powers at the expense of the ...

After Long Haul, Divestment Legislation Passes in State | The ...
After a five-year legislative and lobbying effort to use the commonwealth's economic prowess to help isolate rogue regimes, the Pennsylvania General Assembly passed Iran and Sudan divestment legislation. And Jewish groups played a significant role in the effort. All that's required for the bill to become law is for Gov. Ed Rendell to sign it. He is expected to do so, pending a thorough legal review, according to spokes-man Gary Tuma. On June 22, the Pennsylvania House unanimously passed, without amendment, the exact bill that the Senate approved in May. In the past, the House had championed the measure, only to see it ... market research, surveys and trends


Disturbing Israeli Poll, An Israeli Activist's View On Divestment ...
A very disturbing poll appeared in Ha'aretz last week. The poll indicates a hardening of Israeli views on Arabs; not only regarding those in the Occupied Territories, but also within Israel itself. To be sure, the second intifada has a lot to do with these feelings. Still, when one steps back for a moment, it seems clear that something else must be at work. In the past year, Israelis have experienced considerably fewer violent attacks as the intifada has slowed (it should be noted that there is little evidence, other than the coincidental timing, that the wall is the reason--rather, the fact that Hamas and even ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Jewish Groups Mostly Hail Presbyterian Outcomes
National Jewish groups praised U.S. Presbyterians for rejecting the most controversial anti-Israel proposals at the church’s General Assembly. In votes last Friday in Minneapolis, the assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA) rejected sanctions and divestment as a means of protesting Israel’s settlements in the West Bank and its blockade of the Gaza Strip, as well as theological critiques of Zionism that Jewish groups said bordered on the anti-Semitic. It also recognized both Israeli and Palestinian claims in the conflict. “Rejection of overtures calling for the use of divestment and labeling Israeli policy as ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Congressman Howard L. Berman (D-CA) and thirteen of his colleagues in the House of Representatives today sent a letter to the leader of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church, deploring its recent adoption of a resolution calling upon the Church to divest from companies doing business in Israel and urging that it be rescinded.   The letter expresses their belief that the resolution is irresponsible, counterproductive and undermines the prospect of peace by �emboldening those who seek to de-legitimize the State of Israel.� Berman noted that the letter reflects widespread outrage at the actions of the ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
Bethlehem University - BU in the News
FOR DECADES North American and European churches have composed countless, careful statements on the conflict in Palestine/Israel. They prayed for peace, passed resolutions, established missions on the ground, invested in institution-building for Palestinian Christians and engaged the international community in dialogue, delegations and declarations. Finally, after 38 years of Israeli military occupation of Palestine, some Christian denominations have crossed the great divide from making statements condemning the occupation to taking action that could result in economic consequences for corporations profiting from it. And the ...

verdemilon-ga, You're in luck. A cancelled meeting this evening left me with more time available than I thought I would have, so here's your list of the many Electrolux comings and goings in what certainly seems was a tough decade for the company.
