Protestant divestment?

So what’s the news of American Protestant churches and South African-style divestment of Israel?

Seems that there are charges of anti-Semitism (so what’s new there?) and waffling from people who had already made up their minds that investing in companies that benefit the Israeli onslaught of Palestinians might actually be a bad thing.

But it is had to get hard news stories. Gossip over coffee after worship today suggested there were terroristic threats against American Episcopalians for making this move. Again, gossip, so I’ll be searching for the hard news. (Make a comment if you have a link to something unbiased and substantial.)

Later. Make that Presbyterian, both for the immediate divestment move, and for a letter from Queens, New York that threatens the arson of Presbyterian churches during Sunday services.
