Washington, DC – Liberty Counsel is hosting the Thirteenth Annual Israel Solidarity Event on Thursday, May 2, at the Embassy of Israel. Ambassador H.E. Ron Dermer and Reverend Franklin Graham will be speaking at the event.
The Israel Solidarity Event celebrates Israel’s independence, when it became a sovereign nation in 1948, and encourages people to stand in solidarity with Israel to support its right to exist. This is the 66th year of Israel’s independence.
“For the first time since Harry Truman recognized the State of Israel on May 14, 1948, America’s support of Israel is waning,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “There has never been a more important time for people to stand up for Israel!”
“America shares a common bond through our history, heritage, and faith. Christians and Jews must stand in solidarity to one another, and together they must stand in solidarity with Israel and its right to exist as a sovereign nation. Along with our shared common values, Israel and America also share common threats. We are comforted and assured by the Scriptures that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is not intimidated by adversity,” said Staver.
In 2011, Liberty Counsel launched the Liberty Ambassador Counsel (LAC) program, which is designed to strengthen ties between Israel and the United States. Liberty Ambassador Counsel® connects Americans to Israel on a personal basis, to strengthen their Christian faith and equip them to become a goodwill ambassador for Israel. This unique program combines visits to Biblical and historical sites in the Holy Land with instruction and briefings by Israel’s leading political, military, business, research, and academic leaders.
Liberty Counsel is an international nonprofit, litigation, education, and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and the family since 1989, by providing pro bono assistance and representation on these and related topics.
