A Kinship of Common Values – Israelis Hold Pro-U.S. Rally

Given the amount of anti-American violence that’s taken place around the world in recent weeks, this is heartening:

Around 40 people gathered at the US embassy in Tel Aviv at the start of a rally in support of the United States.

Ronen Shoval, founder of the Im Tirzu movement which organized the gathering, said “we are here to support the American people.”

The participants waved US and Israeli flags. One large sign, carried by three people, read: “Israel – America’s Best Friend In The Middle East.”

There are plenty of people in the world, plenty of countries, that will side against the U.S. unthinkingly, whose hatred of the U.S. won’t be swayed by facts or reason. And then there are those people and countries who – though they may on occasion have gripes against specific U.S. policies – will stand by the U.S. in both good times and bad. Israel is such an ally, because the U.S.-Israel alliance is built on, in the words of columnist Jeff Jacoby, a “kinship of common values” that transcends politics.

Here’s to friends who come in when the world goes out.

    Christians in the United States will stand with Israel to the end. It is our belief, our charge and our loyalty to God and his word to his people that we hold strongly to our heart to the end of times. To not do so would be an unspeakable break of friendship and abandonment of shared beliefs and dedications to our history and shared sacrifices. Do not believe all you hear in the liberal American media. The more they are intimidated by our solidarity the more they spin un-truths. We Stand with you.

    I love what God loves and God loves Israel, the apple of His eye. I am like Ruth, “Your God is my God and your people my people”.

    The Lord has given me a heart for Isreal & I could not sleep last night w/ the sadness I feel for my country & Isreal. Then at last I knew God heard my prayer. And I knew that Jehovah Jirah will be our provider. Something wonderful is His plan. He is not neutral. Divine intervention will prevail.Blessed be the God of Abraham, Issac & Jacob!

    Israel wasn’t chosen to be a Great Nation because of its Size …
    But Because they Dared believe God, Against Impossible odds … Because of Abraham their forefather … who Dared Follow God’s Leed

      Jerome, The majority of Chistians that I know in the US do not believe that Pres. Obama has Israel’s best interest at mind at all. Please pray with us for a fair election this year that favors those candidates that believe in God and cherish the protection of Israel and our friendship with your sovereign and blessed Country. We admire your courage and your steadfastness and pray for a renewed and proudly voiced committment of solidarity and friendship with your Country and with your Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who we have much respect and admiration for.

      God Bless.

    My prayer is that America is not one of the nations the Bible talks about that comes against Israel and then gets destroyed for it.

    May our flags always fly together announcing to the world the friendship between Israel and the American people, this is my prayer. May God protect us from the enemy who seeks to destroy that. Praise the Name of JESUS forever.

Urgent Prayer Alert

Yesterday during ceasefire talks, Hamas launched 50 rockets into Israel in as single half hour — rockets targeting Ben Gurion airport, Tel Aviv, and Jerusalem. The quiet is over and rockets rain down on Israel.
