B'nai B'rith International was featured on Shalom TV Daily News, condemning the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) on its recent vote to divest business from three corporations that do business with Israel.
Announced at the PC (U.S.A.)'s 221st biennial General Assembly, the move supports a partisan, anti-Israel approach to the peace process.
As a humanitarian organization that has invested tremendous hope and extensive efforts worldwide in building Christian-Jewish friendship for 170 years, B'nai B'rith International remains confident that such an approach does not reflect the values and perspectives of the vast majority of American Christians.

Shalom TV Daily News featured B'nai B'rith International's statement praising the decision by an Argentine federal court to strike down the agreement between Argentina and Iran to create the “Commission of Truth.”
The agreement called for an “independent” group that would investigate the 1994 bombing of the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association (AMIA) Jewish center in Buenos Aires that killed 85 people and wounded 300. The court ruled the agreement unconstitutional.
B’nai B’rith opposed the agreement the moment it was signed in January of 2013. As recently as this week, President Allan J. Jacobs and Executive Vice President Daniel S. Mariaschin met with the Argentine foreign minister to express their concerns over the agreement.
