These clips from a behind-closed-doors event reveal who has been training and funding Presbyterians -and other denominations- to fights BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) within their churches.
Ethan Felson of Israel Action Network: “We got involved with all of the churches asking them what was going on and every single one of them was ready to move with divestment. Groups associated with Sabeel had taken over… literally taken over and were the majority in every Middle East Peace and Justice Committee that operated within these churches, and the Presbyterians were the obvious first place to go…”
Mr. Felson speaks about their "theory of action" and how they work within "mostly progressive communities to help THEM shape the right messages and to give them 'the infrastructure' to do the work to counter delegitimization."
Israel Action Network's opaque lobbying and funding is a big reason our road to divestment took 10 years.
