A Night to Honor Israel is an expression of Christian solidarity with the State of Israel and the Jewish people. The Bible commands us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Psalm 122:6), to speak out for Zion’s sake (Isaiah 62:1), to be watchmen on the walls of Jerusalem (Isaiah 62:6) and to bless the Jewish people (Genesis 12:3). These and many other Bible verses have one overriding message– as Christians we have a Biblical obligation to defend Israel and the Jewish people in their time of need.
As you know, the Middle East is a dangerous neighborhood. Israel is surrounded by enemies bent on her destruction. But the troubling fact is that Israel is under attack right here in America. On college campuses across this country, Israel is being condemned as a racist, oppressive, apartheid regime. And in churches across the country, anti-Israel activists are fooling our young people into believing that their values demand that they stand against Israel, not with her. We must stand up and speak up for Israel in her time of need. Our faith demands it. The times require it. Silence is not an option. We will be silent no longer.
