JNS.org – A group of 20 lawmakers from Israel allies caucuses from around the world will gather in Jerusalem for a three-day visit as part of a conference organized by the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus.

The lawmakers will attend Israel Allies Foundation’s annual Jerusalem Chairman’s Conference, which is being co-sponsored by the World Jewish Congress (WJC) and International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ) at the Mamilla Hotel from Oct. 12-14.

At the conference, the lawmakers are expected to urge an investigation of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) following the discovery of weaponry in U.N. schools in Gaza during this summer’s war. They are also expected to speak out against the persecution of Christians in the Middle East.
