A group of 50 pro-Israel Christian politicians and church leaders from around the world were hosted Wednesday in the Knesset, in an effort to further strengthen a Judeo-Christian alliance against Islamic extremism. The event, which was organized by the Knesset's increasingly-influential Christian Allies Caucus and the Evangelical group "All Nations Convocation," comes amidst burgeoning ties between Israel and the predominantly Evangelical Christian community around the world. The group included government officials, legislators, and pastors from Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Japan, India, Indonesia, Singapore, Papua New Guinea, as well as from Egypt and Kuwait.
