More than 100,000 American Christians have signed a petition expressing solidarity with Israel. The petition, organized by Pastor John Hagee's group Christians United for Israel, was presented Tuesday to members of Congress. It states that "there is no excuse for acts of terrorism against Israel and Israel has the same right as every other nation to defend her citizens from such violent attacks. The petition goes on to say that its signers pledge to speak out on behalf of their "brothers and sisters in Israel" whenever and wherever necessary "until the attacks stop and they are finally living in peace and security with their neighbors." In a statement, Hagee said, "As our leaders in Washington make decisions about American foreign policy in the Middle East, it is important for them to know that Christians across the country remain solidly committed to a strong US-Israel relationship."
