PAMELA GORMAN COMES OUT STRONG IN SUPPORT OF ISRAEL
Congressional candidate Pamela Gorman today signed the "Israel Pledge" sponsored by Christians United for Israel today. Gorman said, "Too many politicians are afraid to offend someone by speaking the truth about what is going on in this country with our Israel relations under this administration. I am unapologetically pro-Israel and am not afraid to publicly say it."
The Israel Pledge reads:
"We believe that the Jewish people have a right to live in their ancient land of Israel, and that the modern State of Israel is the fulfillment of this historic right.
We maintain that there is no excuse for acts of terrorism against Israel and that Israel has the same right as every other nation to defend her citizens from such violent attacks.
We pledge to stand with our brothers and sisters in Israel and to speak out on their behalf whenever and wherever necessary until the attacks stop and they are finally living in peace and security with their neighbors.”
Gorman’s publicly stated position on U.S. relations with Israel is that the Obama administration’s treatment of Israel and possible future policies are unacceptable. Israel has been our closest ally in the Middle East for many years and a key stabilizing nation as well as key partner in the war on terror. But, the U.S. Congress can, and must, do all it can to mitigate his mistakes. Gorman explains, “I feel the relationship with Israel is vital to our national security, but also that we have a moral obligation to provide protection. As evangelical Christian, my concern for how our nation provides for Israel’s protection also reflects my firmly held belief in the Holy Scriptures where Israel is concerned. As such, my positions is both a strategic and personal.”
Christians United for Israel is a non-profit organization. The purpose of Christians United For Israel (CUFI) is to provide a national association through which every pro-Israel church, parachurch organization, ministry or individual in America can speak and act with one voice in support of Israel in matters related to Biblical issues.
