Sizer (Sabeel U.K.) withdraws parishs funds over divestment rejection

Reverend Stephen Sizer, Vice Chair of Friends of Sabeel UK, has withdrawn £140,000 of his Parish’s money from the Church of England’s Central Board of Finance (CBF) investment account, in protest at the Church’s decision against divestment. Sizer, who threatened this action in March 2006, as previously reported by NGO Monitor, accuses the Church of "profiting from the colonisation of Palestine." Sizer has referred to Israel as an "apartheid regime", is active in promoting the divestment campaign and is a proponent of replacement theology.
