Presbyterian officials backtrack from Hezbollah meeting
Presbyterian Church USA (PCUSA) officials are backtracking now from their recent meetings with Hezbollah and stating that they should have been more clear about denouncing terrorism.
"It was wrong that Hizbollah representatives and the Arab media utilized the group's visit for political purposes," he said in the letter. "Because they did, I now regret attending the meeting."
The PC(USA) threats of divestiture of holdings from businesses engaged with Israel or the Israeli government are certainly not attempts by Hezbollah and Arab media to 'utilize the group's visit for political purposes'.
