"Netanyahu about Evangelical Christians, "Israel Has No Better Friends!"

Maayan Jaffe/JNS.org : Oct 5, 2015  Charisma News, JNS.org

"Thank you for standing with us. Pray for the people of Jerusalem—may it prosper. God bless." -Israeli President Rivlin

(Jerusalem, Israel)Black lights and sensational music. Dancing. Prayer. Charity. A march of thousands of colors from more than 80 nations—a march in solidarity with Israel. In essence, it's Jerusalem's Christian Zionist Super Bowl. (Photo Credit: ICEJ/via JNS.org)

Such was the scene of the 36th annual Feast of Tabernacles conference and celebration, hosted by the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ) from Sept. 27-Oct. 1. The event brought more than 5,000 people to the Israeli capital, including more than 50 pro-Israel Christian parliamentarians and government officials from more than two-dozen countries. Several African nations sent a large delegation of cabinet ministers and members of parliament (MPs) to officially represent their countries.

According to Dr. Jurgen Buhler, executive director of ICEJ, the median age of attendees was between 30 and 40. The weeklong festivities mark Israel's largest annual event for tourists and the largest solidarity mission to the Jewish state this year, injecting an estimated $16 million into the Israeli economy.

In a video speech Sept. 29, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the Christian Zionist attendees for their "unfaltering, enthusiastic support [of Israel] over the years."

"Israel has no better friends around the world," he said.

Similarly, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat said, "Not everyone in the world seeks the best for Jerusalem. There are people that challenge our history. Sometimes, we feel alone... Your friendship is warming our hearts. I want to thank you for your prayers and your unprecedented support and passion."
