The dispute is over the churches' request that Congress investigate U.S. military aid to Israel. The churches are accusing the Jewish state of widespread human rights violations in the Palestinian territories.

The head of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism is calling the claims against Israel repugnant and baseless.

Among those who endorsed the statement are the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), and the United Methodist Council of Bishops.
