I love being in Jerusalem. The first time I visited the Holy City and the Western Wall I was filled with overwhelming joy. God is everywhere, but I feel his presence especially strongly in Jerusalem.
Do you fear for Israel’s future based on the growing threats in the region?
Sixty-five years after Israel’s independence, the Jewish state remains surrounded by enemies. From instability in Egypt and Syria to the existential threat to Israel posed by Iran’s nuclear weapons program, I do fear for Israel.
That said, we must ask ourselves: Where are Israel’s enemies of centuries past? Where are Haman, Hitler and Pharaoh? They have been relegated to the dustbin of history. But Israel lives as a strong and free nation. God does indeed bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse her.
