MINNEAPOLIS - Presbyterian leaders in the US are backing a recommendation Friday that the US end aid to Israel unless the country stops settlement expansions in disputed Palestinian territories.




Delegates of the Presbyterian Church voted Friday to support the proposal during the church's general assembly in Minneapolis.




The measure passed with 82 percent of the vote.




Jewish Council for Public Affairs vice president Ethan Felson says it strengthens support for Israel's right to exist and removes comparisons of Israeli policy to apartheid.
