Presbyterian Church To Divest Investments Of Companies Doing Business In Israelof

Once again the world seems turned upside down and we sending soldiers to Iraq
Shia firebrand warning we will be ready for US troops if they come back
A total sense of chaos and disarray
Iraqi army still fleeing from the fray
While Iran cannot hold back its glee and joy
As it watches the fruits of 4,500 lives lost rot and be destroyed
Millions of dollars of US arms now in ISIS fanatical hands
Obama once again blindsided by forces he cannot understand
This is a full civil war in a nation that should be into three parts split
Hundreds of years of Sunni versus Shiite with hatreds and scores to settle that will not quit
The one beacon in that God forsaken part of the world
An oasis of democracy as the jihadist currents swirled
Our ally Israel now subject to demands of Presbyterians to divest
Dollars in companies doing business in Israel to treatment of Palestinians protest
Only 21 million but the decision seems a slap in Israel’s face
Why the Palestinians sworn to Israel off the map erase
Are becoming those worthy of the Church’s latest embrace?
