Let's Hope The Methodist Are Disunited On This Issue

UMC national leadership is considering jumping on the Israeli disinvestment bandwagon.

Emperor Misha is predictably displeased. I left this comment:

Can the UMC find a government without sin in whose country it is worthy to invest?

Are the people behind the Israeli disinvestment movement consistent? Have they supported disinvestment in clearly disreputable nations such as the former and current Communist countries, or the slavery-legalizing Islamic nations of Sudan and Mauritania, or (going back some years) Peron's Argentina and Francisco Franco's Spain? Do they support continuing the embargo against Cuba, the most evil government in this hemisphere?

Also, do these schemes distinguish between businesses with government contracts and businesses that trade exclusively with the private sector? Do they regard a McDonald's in Tel Aviv to be just as evil as a shipment of Stinger missiles to the IDF?
