A message to the people of Israel

The Jerusalem Post, December 30, 1996

When Gamla and Masada fell 2000 years ago, Jerusalem fell.

World-wide, the calls are growing for the redivision of your Holy City.

We disassociate ourselves from the unchristian statement placed by clerics as a full-page advertisement in the New York Times on December 21, 1996, in which they called on President Bill Clinton to pressure Israel into sharing sovereignty over Jerusalem, the historical and spiritual capital of the Jewish people.

Together with millions of Christians around the world, we want to say to your regathered nation:

"Do not lose heart
God has not brought you back to your land from the four corners of the earth (Isaiah 11:12) just to have you surrender your biblical and historical rights, and the security of the remnant of your nation, to those who have demonstrated their hatred, and their desire to destroy you.
You have been brought back to be a light to all of the nations
And a light to the nations you shall be!"
We stand in solidarity with you

"Thus says the Lord GOD:
