Evangelical leaders belonging to Trump’s WH Faith and Opportunity Initiative gathered overlooking the Temple Mount and sang the president’s praises for doing what so many presidents have promised but lacked the guts to do. Move the US embassy to Jerusalem. One by one they all commented on this momentous occasion and the man who made it possible.
Pastor Paula White, who is spearheading the initiative, praised the work that Christian and Jewish leaders had done to advocate for the embassy move. She also lauded the work of White House officials Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt, as well as U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman.
Ralph Reed, leader of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, called the embassy move “an incredible moment in history, something that we as Americans cherish.” He referred to Jerusalem as the “ancient, eternal, and indivisible capital of Israel.”
He also commented: “I don’t think that it was an accident that the first trip that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made … was to Israel.”
Former Rep. Michele Bachmann declared her “thanks and appreciation for the faithful rabbis and the faithful pastors who for the past decades faithfully preached the Word of God.”
She added: “Without that, there perhaps wouldn’t have been the political will to do this. President Trump acted out of his heart, I believe, and because of his love for the Jewish state, but also because the heart of the American people was with this move.”
Pastor Jim Garlow of California’s Skyline Church declared: “Where people know, love, and read the Bible, they stand with the Jewish people and the nation of Israel.”
He added: “Donald Trump does not come from amidst us [in the Evangelical Christian Community]. … [But] God knew what Israel needed.”
Later, he added: “You watch — he’ll be another Cyrus,” referring to the Biblical ruler of Persia, who permitted the Jews to return from exile to rebuild their temple.
“[Trump] has done more for religious liberty and Israel than any president we’ve ever had.”
Lourdes Aguirre of the Latino Coalition for Israel said that President Trump’s message in moving the U.S. embassy had been consistent with his message of peace.
She said that the humanitarian work Christians do in Syria, in coordination with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), is possible in part because of President Trump’s support.
Not bad for a president who is a racist and anti-Semite is it? But I did notice one thing. All of these liberals who were so worried that Trump hates Jews failed to show up for the celebration. Take note AIPAC when you hand out your political contributions. Support those that supported you.
