Anglicans keep their Caterpillar shares

Still from the JC, the Church of England has ruled out divesting itself of its shares in Caterpillar, the company that makes customised bulldozers for Israel's war criminal policy of house demolitions. The same article discusses the issue of sanctions across the board against Israel by Anglicans worldwide, though this too is ruled out. These two issues are very different and whilst I can understand the Church finding a way around a general boycott of Israel I don't see how it can justify investing in the armaments of ethnic cleasing. That Rowan Williams guy is a worry.

For anyone wishing to contact the C of E over this, here is their contact us page.
