We encourage the United Church to adopt a boycott of Israeli settlement products, as already recommended by the church’s Middle East working group. Israeli companies which profit from Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territory are in violation of the UN Norms on the Responsibilities of Transnational Corporations and other Business Enterprises with Regard to Human Rights. These norms forbid companies from engaging in and profiting from war crimes, crimes against humanity, and other violations of international law.
