The MCC gets it right on not supporting violence against Palestinians

A courageous choice by the Mennonite Central Committee, here: http://www.mcc.org/stories/news/mcc-us-board-acts-peace-through-its-investments
We need solutions that are pro-peace for all, pro-justice for all, pro-Israeli, and pro-Palestinian ... and a good step in that direction is to withdraw support from organizations that profit by impeding progress toward that goal. We have a long way to go ... especially in light of supremely unhelpful comments like these from Pat Robertson:

Robertson's comments embody so much that is wrong with outdated, unwise ways of engaging faith and politics. Perhaps Robertson and CBN should be seen as religious counterparts of Raytheon and Caterpillar.
