The right man for the job! (CIDI)

Tomorrow, on the heels of today’s remarkably warm meeting between President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations begins the confirmation process of David Friedman as U.S. Ambassador to Israel. 
Christians in Defense of Israel, along with many Christian leaders, endorse the nomination of Mr. Friedman. But he is facing stiff opposition. That is why I am calling on friends of Israel like you to join me in voicing support by sending a message to members of the Senate Committee and to select Senate leaders. Click here for details and to send your immediate message.

Seventy Christian leaders met earlier this month with David Friedman, President Donald Trump’s nominee as the U.S. Ambassador to Israel. My takeaway from the meeting is that David Friedman is the right person to represent the United States to Israel.

Mr. Friedman is an Orthodox Jew whose father was a rabbi. Ronald Reagan spoke at his father’s synagogue. Friedman loves Israel and he loves America. He intimately understands both nations.

We have a historic opportunity to strengthen the relationship between the United States and Israel. This opportunity to forge stronger bonds between the two nations could not come at a more critical time.


And yet he faces stiff opposition from some in Congress, numerous ultra-liberal Jewish groups, and newspapers like the New York Times, Washington Post, and Boston Globe.

That is why I am asking you to act now. Over the next 24 hours, I am asking every friend of Israel to send a message to the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations and to other members of the Senate that David Friedman should be fully confirmed by the Senate as quickly as possible.

Everything you need to send an immediate message is here.

+ + David Friedman supports moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem

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.”

We support Mr. Friedman’s goals!

Christians in Defense is among the foremost voices urging President Trump to move the Embassy to Jerusalem. Mr. Friedman’s support for the embassy move is among the many reasons why CIDI is calling on the Senate to confirm him as the Ambassador to Israel.

Please consider a message in support of David Friedman today!

God bless you. God bless Israel. God bless America.
