A well-known advocate for Israel and Christian Zionist filmmaker is considering running for a seat in the US House of Representatives.
Laurie Cardoza-Moore, founder and president of Proclaiming Justice to The Nations, an organization dedicated to creating dialogue between Christians and Jews in order to educate them about the dangers of antisemitism and the BDS movement in the US, confirmed over the weekend that she is considering a run for the Republican nomination in the legislature.
“I don’t have a specific timetable for deciding whether or not I will run for Congress,” Cardoza-Moore told the conservative Nashville website The Tennessee Star. “But I am getting a lot of encouragement to bring my talents, skills, commitment to conservative values and passionate devotion to our country to the political arena.”
Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn announced last week that she is looking to fill the seat of Sen. Bob Corker, who announced his retirement,
in the 2018 election. Republican State Sen. Mark Gree and Justin Kanew, a Democrat, have already confirmed that they would be seeking the Tennessee District 7 seat.
Cardoza-Moore, who is also the World Council of Independent Christian Churches special envoy to the UN, has led the fight in her state against the anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions movement (BDS).
“BDS are responsible for an increase in antisemitism and violent attacks on Jewish students on campuses in America and around the world,” she said. “Tennessee was the first state to pass legislation to publicly condemn the BDS movement.”
In order to stop the trend, Cardoza-Moore produced a docu-tainment movie called Boycott This
with conservative Christian comedian Brad Stine to show that the Jewish people are not a people who have hatred in their DNA.
“These are a people who are constantly creating to make the world a better place, to actually fulfill what it says in the Scriptures, that they would be a light to the nations. And [we want] to present that story to Christians.”
Cardoza-Moore has also made her name well known in her home state by leading the fight to eliminate antisemitic, anti-Judeo/Christian, anti-American, pro-Islamic indoctrination of students in Tennessee’s schools.
But her work hasn’t only been limited to her hometown. Just last week, Cardoza-Moore registered another victory against the BDS movement when her organization helped convince the state of Ohio to become the 12th state to introduce an anti-BDS resolution. “Ohio must be congratulated for standing in defense of Israel and the Jewish people and against attempts made by the antisemitic BDS movement to silence their voice on US university campuses,” she said.
“Jewish and Christian Zionists must not bow to efforts that violate the 1964 Civil Rights Act that silences their voice and their opinion because of intimidation and threats of violence... The anti-BDS resolutions are increasingly gaining acceptance and support across the United States because hatred does not belong on our campuses and every student deserves to be educated and thrive on American campuses without fear or intimidation.”sign up to our newsletter
