Bulldozer row at C of E

According to the Guardian, former Archbishop of Canterbury, George Carey, has weighed into the row about the Anglican Church supporting disinvestment from Caterpillar on account of Israel's use of their bulldozers to commit war crimes in the occupied territories. Current Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, came in for particular criticism.
His predecessor as archbishop, George Carey, said the synod decision made him ashamed to be an Anglican and Canon Andrew White, the church's chief negotiator in the Middle East, described the motion as "more sanctimonious claptrap" which made him despair of the church.
I don't know what obscurantist source could lead Christians to believe that investing in war crimes is good Christian behaviour. Perhaps there are clues on the Anglicans for Israel site.
