Israeli, Christian leaders vow to confront radical Islam
MK’s: 'We never knew how much we'd need Christian support'
Ynet News reports that Israeli Knesset Members and Christian leaders vowed to work together to confront the threat posed by Iran and radical Islam during a meeting held to mark the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus's third anniversary in the Knesset on Tuesday.
Highlighting the global scope of radical Islam, Knesset Member Gilad Eldan of Likud said Christians and Jews, who share the values of democracy, freedom, and human rights, had to cooperate to secure the future. Knesset Member Ran Cohen (Meretz), also a member of the Caucus, said: "We didn't imagine three years ago that we would need the caucus as much as we do."
Knesset Member Gideon Sa'ar drew parallels with the late 1930's in England and Germany, and Malcolm Hedding, the Director of the International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem, also linked the rise of Nazi Germany to the modern threat posed by radical Islam and Iran. "Twelve educated men sat in a room and decided to liquidate 11 million people," said Hedding, referring to the decision taken by the Nazis to carry out the Holocaust. "Today, people in radical Islam are dedicated to doing the same."
Hedding said that "the restoration of Israel in our time is not a political coincidence, it is a fulfillment of God's promise to Abraham 4,000 years ago."
