Israel Losing Support

Since its founding in 1948, Israel has gotten unquestioned support from countries and people around the world. That is changing, as sympathy for the Palestinians grows.

The latest sign is from the World Council of Churches. From its headquarters in Geneva, the WCC has recommended to all its members that they seriously consider divesting from companies that aid Israel in its occupation of the Palestinian territories.

This move follows the decision of the Presbyterian Church USA to divest from such corporations.

Many fundamentalist Christians in the US still give Israel a blank check in all its policies. But other Christian churches are beginning to reject that stance.

Israel's blank check is ending.
