Will Evangelicals love both Israel and her Arab neighbors?

It’s not always easy. But it’s a command of both Moses and Yeshua (My remarks to the 2018 Christian Media Summit, delivered at the Israeli President’s Residence.)
(Jerusalem, Israel) — Last week, I had the wonderful opportunity to join some 180 Evangelical journalists, broadcasters and authors from more than 30 countries participating in the 2018 Christian Media Summit held here in the Israeli capital.
Over the course of four days, we met with and were able to ask questions of:
President Reuven Rivlin (see his remarks, watch videos of other speakers here)
Speaker of the Knesset Yuli Edelstein
Mayor of Jerusalem Nir Barkat
U.S. Ambassador David Friedman (see his remarks here)
and numerous Israeli Jewish, Muslim and Christian officials, military officers, scholars, experts, business executives and faith leaders.
“We have no better friends in the world than our Christian friends and I take this opportunity to thank you for your steadfast support,” the Prime Minister told us. “You are standing up for Israel and you are standing up for the truth and we stand up for you.”
“You are ambassadors of truth,” Netanyahu added. “You’re not merely the greatest ambassadors that Israel has around the world – you’re champions of truth. And if there’s one thing that I can ask you to do is to tell the truth.”
