A U.S.-based Protestant denomination voted to oppose Israel’s West Bank security barrier. On Wednesday, the Disciples of Christ Church passed the measure with backing from about two-thirds of the 3,000 members. The resolution states that the security fence exacerbates hostility between the Israelis and Palestinians and calls on Israel to stop its construction, tear down what already has been built and pay reparations to Palestinian property owners.
