On July 5, 2005, at its 25th biennial General Synod in Atlanta, the United Church of Christ (UCC) passed two anti-Israel resolutions. The first was a divestment resolution and the second resolution calls for Israel to tear down its security fence.
The UCC's "Tear Down the Wall" resolution tells Israel to take down the separation barrier but it does not ask the Palestinians to stop suicide attacks against Israelis. This resolution ignores Israeli efforts to minimize the barrier's impact on farmers and to speed passage through checkpoints. Moreover, it suggests the barrier was built in a vacuum, rather than in response to the murder of more than 1,000 Israelis since September 2000 at the hands of Palestinian terrorists. For a small country like Israel, that is the equivalent of 40,000 U.S. citizens murdered by terrorists.
