Christian parliamentarians from around the world will show their support for Israel this week in a Christian Allies Caucus conference in Jerusalem.

The MPs have a packed schedule for the three-day event, including a briefing by Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, participating in the Feast of Tabernacles with 5,000 Israel-supporters from 90 countries, and visiting a factory in Ma’aleh Adumim with 200 Palestinian workers.

The CAC members will also sign a petition to increase supervision of funds their countries send to UNRWA, the UN agency dealing only with Palestinian refugees and their descendants, which was widely discredited during Operation Protective Edge after Hamas rockets were found stored in and fired from its buildings and their vicinity. They will present the document to Communications Minister Gilad Erdan.

The participating parliamentarians hail from the UK, Italy, Sweden, South Africa, Canada, Spain, the Netherlands, Portugal, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Greece, Brazil, Uruguay, Paraguay, Guatemala and Suriname.

Israel Allies Foundation president and former tourism minister Rabbi Benny Elon said the MPs represent millions of Israel supporters from around the world.

“Unfortunately, hatred toward the Jewish state, which connects radical Islam with the extreme Left, is making more noise and gaining more recognition than ever before, but it is important to know that around the world, there are hundreds of millions of Israel supporters, and we try to channel that into political power to help Israel,” Elon explained.sign up to our newsletter
