Dexter Van Zile of CAMERA has spent years calling attention to and speaking out against the anti-Israel movement in mainline Christian churches. Today, he takes a look at the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) efforts in the United Church of Christ, and calls them out for what they truly are:

It just goes to confirm what most people have concluded all along: anti-Israel divestment resolutions are just a charade, a put-on used to generate hostility toward the Jewish state and its supporters in the US. The whole point of the divestment resolutions was not to get church institutions to sell stock, but to use divestment motions to turn the floor of church-wide assemblies into venues for anti-Israel witch trials.
