Thousands of Christians are in Washington, D.C., this week to stand up and speak out for Israel at Christians United for Israel’s annual Washington Summit.
This year’s summit comes in the wake of President Obama’s comments in May suggesting that the borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed land swaps.
On Tuesday night, Summit goers and others will gather for “A Night to Honor Israel,” an expression of Christian solidarity with the State of Israel and the Jewish people. A Night to Honor Israel is also being broadcast live on the Daystar Television Network at 7:30 p.m. ET.
Speakers include Pastor John Hagee, founder and national chairman of Christians United for Israel, Ambassador Michael Oren, the State of Israel’s ambassador to the U.S., and radio and TV personality Glenn Beck.
