A powerful new ally! (CIDI)

David Friedman’s confirmation as the next U.S. Ambassador to Israel Mat & David Friedmangives Christians in Defense of Israel a powerful new ally on the ground in Israel and inside the Trump administration!
Friends of CIDI barraged the Senate with messages in support of David Friedman’s confirmation!


Now, we also stand with him in support of moving the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv to Israel’s ancient capital, Jerusalem.



Working in tandem with President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, Ambassador David Friedman now has a historic opportunity to strengthen the relationship between the United States and Israel and to encourage the president to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.

As you may know, Ambassador Friedman is a strong proponent of the move. Following President Trump’s nomination of David Friedman to this vital ambassadorship, Mr. Friedman said, “I intend to work tirelessly to strengthen the unbreakable bond between our two countries and advance the cause of peace within the region, and look forward to doing this from the U.S. embassy in Israel’s eternal capital, Jerusalem.”

Last month, Vice President Mike Pence told a pro-Israel crowd, that “The president of the United States is giving serious consideration to moving the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.”

Christians in Defense of Israel’s petition to President Trump calls for his administration to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. We plan to deliver the petitions later this week! We need as many petition signatures as possible for maximum impact.

Vice President Pence also told the crowd that “President Donald Trump is a man of his word, and he’s a man of action. For the first time in a long time, America has a president who will stand with our allies and stand up to our enemies. The world will know this – America stands with Israel.”

P.S. As pictured above, I, along with seventy Christian leaders met with David Friedman in a meet and greet session and to discuss wide-ranging issues regarding Israel and the Middle East before his confirmation. One thing is certain. David Friedman loves Israel and he loves America. I believe that he will be a powerful ally in many of CIDI’s pro-Israel efforts, including our Liberty Ambassador Council and Covenant Journey initiatives.

P.P.S. The original TV series Why Israel Matters features a new episode, “Eyes That See.”
