Jewish organizations in the United States have denounced the Presbyterian Church (USA)’s recent passage of a resolution labeling Israel’s treatment of Palestinians an “apartheid.”

Last Friday, delegates at the PC(USA) General Assembly voted 266-116 to pass an overture that claimed that Israel was an apartheid state due to its treatment of the Palestinian territories.

Rabbi Eric J. Greenberg of the Los Angeles-based Jewish human rights organization Simon Wiesenthal Center claims that the largest Presbyterian denomination in the U.S. is bearing false witness.
