“With so many challenges facing the Jewish state, it is time we recognize a clear and cogent fact: There are large numbers of Christians around the world ready and willing to stand with us. And, I might add, thank God for that.”

(Jerusalem)—A recent column in the Jerusalem Post by Michael Freund exhorts the Jewish community to embrace Christians as true friends. Freund prefaces his article by recalling his reception at Rev. Pat Robertson’s CBN station in Virginia Beach a week earlier.

Said Freund: “I was moved by the level of heartfelt support for the Jewish state among the staff members. Nearly everyone had been to Israel numerous times, and they described in great detail, and with genuine passion, their profound love for the country and its people.”

“Anchorwoman Wendy Griffith did something I never saw a journalist do before,” he continued. “She folded her hands together, bowed her head in prayer and humbly offered a solemn plea: ‘Bless Your people Israel and keep them safe,’ she said.”

Asks Freund: “Where else can one find such a deeply-rooted love and concern for God’s chosen people? Of course, the fact that many US Christians support Israel is nothing new… but after my visit to CBN, and based on previous encounters I have had with other [Christians], I am more convinced than ever that the Jewish state needs to undertake a coordinated effort to nurture and broaden this special relationship.”

“Rather than focusing solely on the solicitation of Christians’ dollars,” he concludes, “[Israel] should seek to cement their devotion by more actively reaching out and courting their support, prayers and cooperation.

With so many challenges facing the Jewish state, it is time we recognize a clear and cogent fact: There are large numbers of Christians around the world ready and willing to stand with us. And, I might add, thank God for that.”
