"The General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) adopted a policy of "phased, selective divestment" from certain American corporations operating in Israel beginning in 2004, as a means of influencing the government of Israel. Thus the Presbyterian Church (USA) initiated what has become a wider campaign for the disinvestment from Israel. In many ways this has been a result of the church's stance against policies of Israel. This policy has been controversial both within and outside of the denomination, even resulting in charges of anti-Semitism. The policy was revised in 2006 by another vote of the General Assembly."
