Will the U. S. Presbyterian Church Vote to Divest in Israeli Companies?

I have been following this fairly closely because I am totally opposed to the Israeli occupation of Palestine; more specifically, to its continued encroachment into Palestinian territory with their “settlements:”

This afternoon promises a defining moment in Pittsburgh, when the US Presbyterian Church’s General Assembly votes on whether to divest from three companies that do business in the Israeli occupation. Here are updates via Twitter and we’re liveblogging the assembly, keeping you updated on developments.

I hope they vote to divest and I hope if they do, it will start a wave of divestments by universities and towns and companies everywhere.  Maybe at some point the U.S. will actually cut the billions and billions it gives Israel every year if they don’t stop terrorizing and blockading Palestine.
