Board of Deputies responds to Methodist Briefing on the arguments for and against BDS of Israel with a new challenge: Don’t be part of the problem. Start being part of the solution.

At the Board of Deputies, we have seen and read the briefing, “A briefing document for the Methodist people on the arguments for and against the Boycott Divestment Sanctions Movement”.
It confirms our earlier fears, set out in our response to the consultation. The process was flawed because it only allowed itself to consider BDS; which does not promote peace, it only deepens divisions. It did not effectively consider other, more productive means of engaging in the tragic conflict in the Middle East.
