Several US Christian clergy joined Jewish leaders in Canada on Thursday to alert churches about a growing movement by some US Protestant leaders to divest in companies they believe profit from Israeli control of the Palestinian territories. The Jerusalem-based Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology Center is spearheading the divestment movement and is holding a conference in Toronto, Canada's largest city, this week. Sister Ruth Lautt, national director of the US Christians for Fair Witness on the Middle East, called on Canadian denominations to be wary of Sabeel. The group, which promotes "morally responsible investment" in Israel as a nonviolent solution to end the occupation of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, is meeting with Canadian church leaders and non government organizations to explore strategies to achieve peace in the Middle East, including partial divestment and company boycotts.
