JNS.org Nearly two dozen Christian lawmakers from more than a dozen countries traveled to Israel on Sunday to take part in the Israel Allies Foundation’s Jerusalem Chairman’s Conference.

The Israel Allies Foundation was started by former Israeli Minister of Tourism Binyamin Elon to work with lawmakers around the world to “mobilize political support for Israel based on Judeo-Christian values.” The group coordinates activities between the Israeli Knesset’s Christian Allies Caucus and global pro-Israel caucuses.

Christian lawmakers attending the conference hail from more than a dozen countries in North America, Europe, South America, and Africa.

Israeli Economy and Trade Minister Naftali Bennett told the pro-Israel Christian lawmakers at the conference to stand up and speak out about Israel.

“We’re being told that right behind this sukkah (the Old City of Jerusalem) is occupied territory, and we may be boycotted as long as we’re there. Whoever thinks our capital of 3,000 years is occupied doesn’t understand anything. Stop the lies,” Bennett said, the Jerusalem Post reported.

Conference participants will also attend the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem’s “Feast of Tabernacles” gathering of more than 5,000 Christians from 90 countries, which began last week.
