Methodist Church’s Pension Fund Manager Wespath = Says its ethical investment policy requires removal of Israel as a “high risk” country for “a prolonged and systematic pattern of human rights abuses.”

United Methodist Kairos Response (UMKR) = Group that advocates within the church for Palestinian rights, hailed the measure as “the first time a major church pension fund has acted to preclude investment in Israeli banks that sustain Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestinian land.” + “We commend the pension fund for taking this significant step in disassociating from the illegal occupation of Palestinian land. But as United Methodist policy opposes the occupation, this is only a first step towards ending our financial complicity in the ongoing oppression of the Palestinian people.” — UMKR co-chair Reverend Michael Yoshii
