The United Methodist Church, a Presbyterian denomination numbering over seven million members in the United States, announced on Tuesday that its pension board will not invest in five Israeli banks in protest of their role in financing Israeli settlement activity beyond the 1967 Green Line.

The announcement was reported by The New York Times.
