Tonight on Extension 720: In July, the Presbyterian Church approved a plan of selective divestment in companies and firms that contribute to the Israel occupation of Palestine. In October, a Presbyterian theologian travelled to Lebanon to meet with a leader of Hezbollah, an anti-Israel militant group. These actions have caused great strain on Presbyterian-Jewish relations. Opponents of divestment contend that the removal of funds is an attack on the security and future of the state of Israel. Proponents claim that divestment is an attempt to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the oppression of the Palestinian people. Tonight, we will examine the divestment issue from both sides with EMILY SOLOFF, executive director of the Chicago chapter of the American Jewish Committee, DON WAGNER, an ordained Presbyterian minister and professor of Middle Eastern studies at North Park University, and NANETTE SAWYER, an official with the Presbytery of Chicago.
