AME Church Leaders Call for U.S. To End All Funding of Israel

Religion News Service reported that on Feb. 14, the African Methodist Episcopal Church Council of Bishops issued a call on Feb. 19 for the U.S. government to halt all its funding of Israel, citing the deaths of tens of thousands of Palestinians in the Hamas-Israel war. The statement read in part:

“The Council of Bishops of the African Methodist Episcopal Church calls on the United States Government to immediately withdraw all funding and other support from Israel. Since October 7, 2023, in retaliation for the brutal murder of 1,139 Israeli citizens by Hamas, Israel has murdered over 28,000 Palestinians, mostly women and children. The United States is supporting this mass genocide. This must not be allowed to continue.”
