TCS: Tech Central Station - Those Divesting Presbyterians
More about the Presbyterians and Israel.

The jist of the piece is that divestment does not work and only serves to hurt the captive investors in the fund.

The money quote:

Managers of pension plans are fiduciaries of the beneficiaries of those plans. When they pursue a social agenda nearly certain to result in poorer performance, they are disserving their beneficiaries. The activists at the PC(USA) may have gotten a warm and fuzzy feeling from taking a slap at Israel, but in doing so they injured Jewish-Christian relations, besmirched the one functioning democracy in the Middle East, and stabbed their own people in the back. All for the sake of a gesture that experience teaches will be fruitless.
