Mark Levin, host of the nationally syndicated radio show The Mark Levin Show, host of Life, Liberty & Levin on Fox News and a former adviser in the Reagan administration, was honored with the Friends of Zion Museum “Defender Award” for his steadfast support of the State of Israel and the Jewish people. Through radio, TV and other multimedia channels, Levin actively shares his perspective with millions of weekly listeners and over two million followers on social media. According to FOZ, Levin’s broadcasts have influenced his audience to stand with Israel and the Jewish people, advocating on behalf of the common values and principles that both countries stand for, in addition to the special friendship the US and Israel have formed over more than 70 years of relations.“I promise to continue to fight for this country [Israel] and for the United States,” Levin said upon receiving the award. He thanked Israel’s Christian friends for their support, Sheldon and Dr. Miriam Adelson for their generous philanthropy, and the Friends of Zion Museum for its work in strengthening the State of Israel. Echoing his words, US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman noted “the theme that resonates tonight is that nobody can do it alone and everyone needs a partner.” Levin and his family arrived in Israel as part of a delegation led by Friedman – which included US ambassadors to Europe – in order to better understand the region’s challenges and potential, as well as to celebrate the US-Israel alliance. Friedman has brought a number of guests to the museum in support of its vision and role championing Israel. In December 2017, the FOZ Museum bestowed US President Donald Trump with its “Friends of Zion Award” for his unwavering support and defense of the State of Israel. Previous recipients of this prestigious award were former US president George W. Bush, President Jimmy Morales of Guatemala, former Bulgarian president Rosen Plevneliev, US Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt, Dr. Miriam and Sheldon Adelson, and Friedman. The Friends of Zion is currently developing an Ambassador Institute, which includes the first Christian Zionist thinktank. The Friends of Zion Museum, a $100 million project, is building an educational center, a think tank, a communications center and an online university. This thinktank, in cooperation with the top Christian think-tanks from around the world, will build a road-map for decision makers and enlighten the epicenters of politics, economy and the media for hundreds of millions. The online university has partnered with “Blackboard,” the world’s largest educational platform worth $2.3 billion, and will prepare millions to fight antisemitism and inspire them to defend the Jewish people and the State of Israel. It has become one of the top must-see sites in Israel for all tourists and Israeli residents.
