Traditional Values Coalition Joins Israel Solidarity Rally In Washington, DC

Sunday, August 11, 2002 | Tag Cloud

Washington, DC – This afternoon, Traditional Values Coalition Chairman Rev. Louis P. Sheldon will join with thousands of Christians, Jews, and other religious groups in an Israel Solidarity Rally to be held at the U.S. Capitol Building between 1-3 p.m. An estimated 50,000 Israel supporters will participate in this event. Former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to be the featured speaker at this event.

"We are joining hands with One Jerusalem, the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, and the American Zionist Movement to express our unqualified support for Israel’s right to fight terrorism," said Rev. Sheldon today. "We urge Christians and members of all religious faiths to rally behind Israel in its efforts!"

Traditional Values Coalition has begun a partnership with One Jerusalem, a Jewish group (onejerusalem.org) that is working to protect the city of Jerusalem from becoming a divided city—with Islamic extremists controlling many of that city’s Holy Places. One Jerusalem is also working to bring peace to Israel.

"We believe that Israel and the United States are close allies in the war against Islamic extremism—and that Israel has an obligation to protect its people from homicide bombers who are killing innocent civilians," said Rev. Sheldon. "Israel must be free to route out terrorism—just as we are here in the United States and around the globe."

Rev. Sheldon will be available for media interviews after the Israel Solidarity Rally.

The Traditional Values Coalition is an interdenominational public policy organization comprising more than 43,000 churches across the continental United States and Puerto Rico.
