via 17 Christian Groups Defend Right to Boycott Israel, Ask Congress to Reject ‘Israel Anti-Boycott Act’

A coalition of 17 Christian groups have sent a letter to Congress, urging them to reject a bill that would make it official U.S. policy to oppose boycotts of Israel.

The various Christian leaders, including many liberal mainline Protestants, sent the letter Monday, arguing that the “Israel Anti-Boycott Act” that is going through both houses would unjustly suppress “nonviolent peaceful action meant to bring about social change.”
