Saturday, 21 June 2014 07:06

altThe largest U.S. Presbyterian church narrowly voted Friday to divest from three multinational corporations that it said supply Israel with products that promote violence in occupied Palestinian territories.

The divestment, vehemently opposed by many of the nation's prominent Jewish organizations, and hailed by many pro-Palestinian activists, passed by seven votes after hours of tense and complex debate. It means the Presbyterian Church (USA) will sell its shares of Motorola Solutions, Caterpillar and Hewlett Packard, worth about $21 million.

May 2014 was a bittersweet month in Jerusalem.  Anastasia, one of my three sisters, passed away unexpectedly on the 8th, and on the 24-26th, His Holiness Pope Francis made pilgrimage to the Holy Land.

My sister was Sister Anastas of St. Joseph of the Apparition.  Raised Orthodox Christian, she completed her schooling at St. Joseph’s College in Jerusalem, eventually becoming Roman Catholic, joining St. Joseph’s, and dedicating her life to caring for the sick at the St. Joseph Hospital in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of Jerusalem.

BETHLEHEM – During his visit to Bethlehem on Sunday, May 25, 2014, Pope Francis stopped at the wall separating Israel and Palestine. This unique gesture was immediately commented on by the international community and interested Palestinians and Israelis. Yet the Pope refrained from speaking, preferring to be silent and pray at the symbol of suffering.

The image in our memories will remain as one of the icons of this journey: Pope Francis rested his hands and head on the high concrete wall that separates Israel from Palestine.
