Christian Group Launches Drive Against Statehood Bid

An organization that claims to represent 200 million Christians worldwide has launched a campaign opposing a U.N. vote for a unilateral Palestinian state.

Proclaiming Justice to the Nations kicked off the drive Thursday with a proclamation that will be presented to the United Nations in September, stating its mission to encourage U.N. member states to rethink their votes in favor of Palestinian statehood, to support the Israeli government’s rejection of negotiations based on the pre-1967 lines and to recognize Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people.

Laurie Cardoza-Moore, the president of the organization, visited Israel with a group of Christian leaders to launch the campaign and present the proclamation to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The delegation also visited Noam Shalit, the father of Gilad Shalit, to discuss the organization’s efforts to bring the captive soldier’s case to the United Nations.
