Historic Meeting Planned at UN Headquarters

[03.25.08] Christian and Jewish leaders will convene in Manhattan at the United Nations (UN) headquarters on May 15 to honor the 60-year anniversary of the modern state of Israel.

“We are gathering at the seat of global influence, Jews and Christians, united in prayer and solidarity, to celebrate Israel,” said Robert Stearns, executive director of Eagles Wings Ministries and co-sponsor of the event.
 
The evening will include keynote addresses from Asaf Shariv, Israeli consul general to New York; John Hagee, founder of Christians United for Israel; and Shlomo Riskin, chief rabbi of Efrat in Israel.
 
“Evangelical Christians and Jewish people are standing together declaring a God of love not hatred—and calling for peace, not violence,” said Riskin.
 
To be held in the Delegate’s Hall of the UN, organizers of this year’s Jerusalem Prayer Banquet hailed it as a rare chance for Jews and Christians to articulate their support for Israel. It was UN General Assembly Resolution 181 that on May 14, 1948 deeded the Jewish homeland to a tiny remnant of Jews, many of them survivors of Nazi Germany.

Leaders said the location is also noteworthy because it is the platform given last year to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has called for Israel's destruction and has denied the veracity of the Holocaust.

“I do not know of any other point in history,” said Stearns, “where Jews and Christians have joined together at the United Nations in this way, to lift their voices in prayer and declaration for Zion.”
 
Other Christian leaders scheduled to attend include: constitutional law expert Jay Sekulow; Lou Engle, founder of TheCall; publisher Stephen Strang; Fred Price, founder of Crenshaw Christian Center; Larry Kreider, apostolic leader and founder of DOVE Fellowship; Michael Little, president of the Christian Broadcasting Network; and many more.
