In an effort to shore up Evangelical support for Israel, Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, recently met with a group of top Evangelical leaders. Included in this group were Paul Crouch, Founder and President of the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) and Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ). Others in the Evangelical delegation included Michael Little, the President and Chief Operating Officer of The Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN); and Ted Haggard, president of the National Association of Evangelicals. According to the Prime Minister's office, the primary purpose for Sharon's visit with Crouch and others was to promote the interests of Israel to the Evangelical community.
"As a representative of the world's largest Christian television network, Paul Crouch wanted to assure Prime Minister Sharon that Israel has the support of many Evangelicals, and we are praying for him as he seeks peace in a troubled region," says Paul Crouch, Jr., Vice President of Administration for TBN.
Sekulow, a Messianic Jew, is an advisor for U.S. President, George Bush, and is one of the White House's chief strategists for pushing Bush's controversial court nominees through the Senate confirmation process. Sekulow's television program, ACLJ This Week airs on TBN.
