Who are Israel's true friends?
Excerpts of an article that first appeared in the Star Tribune
I was honored to be in the company of Israel’s “friends” last Thursday night at the Living Word Christian Center in Brooklyn Park. From April 19-25, 2010, the Living Word Christian Community gathered to support and honor Israel and the Jewish people in “Celebrate Israel Week”. This was the third annual celebration. Activities included an Israel Marketplace, Holocaust exhibit, a night with Israel Soldiers, a movie presentation, and a gala “Night To Honor Israel”. Speakers included Living Word Pastors Mac and Lynne Hammond, Dennis Prager and Israel Midwest Consul Orli Gil. This weeklong “Celebration” reflected the shared beliefs and commonalities between Christian and Jewish Americans, and love for the State of Israel as America’s comrade-in-arms and in- deeds.

We believe that the Jewish people have a right to live in their ancient land of Israel, and that the modern State of Israel is the fulfillment of this historic right.
