The general conference of the United Methodist Church voted not to divest from three companies that trade with Israel.
Two-thirds of the approximately 1,000 delegates to the conference voted Wednesday in Tampa, Fla., against a motion to divest from Caterpillar, Motorola Solutions and Hewlett-Packard.
Divestment advocates claim that products manufactured by these companies are used to repress Palestinians.
