Christians Show Solidarity With Israel on Capitol Hill
Excerpts of an article that first appeared in Charisma News Online
Thousands of Christians met in Washington, D.C., this week to do what some say the Obama administration has been reluctant to do: stand unwaveringly with Israel.
Roughly 4,500 people gathered for the fifth annual Christians United for Israel (CUFI) Washington Summit, where they lobbied lawmakers to maintain the nation's historic support for Israel and declared their solidarity with the Jewish state. The three-day event ended Thursday.
"Israel's enemies are our enemies; Israel's fight is our fight," CUFI founder John Hagee (pictured) told the crowd at the Night to Honor Israel event Wednesday. "If a line has to be drawn, then let it be drawn around both of us: Christians and Jews, Americans and Israelis."
