Please don't pray for peace while profitting from occupation.

Dear Friends,

As a young adult missionary with the United Methodist Church, serving in Jerusalem, I have witnessed the occupation firsthand. I have seen it destroy homes and families and spirits. It is time for our role as Christians in this occupation to end. We can not pray for peace while we profit from occupation. Please–it is time to divest from house demolitions, from illegal settlements, from home invasions, from helicopter bombardments. It is time to invest in a future of peace with justice.

Peace, David

P.S. Dear David, I hope you realize that zionism doesn't allow for justice.
