Topping today’s news, the rapid Israeli withdrawal from south Lebanon as a springboard for peace is getting mixed reviews. Christians for Israel’s Willem Glashouwer says: “I sometimes think the whole peace process from the Arab point of view, is another way of waging war against Israel. By negotiations and international political pressure, getting what you otherwise would not get in warfare. So, I’m not that thrilled by the withdrawal.” CFI is a non-political movement of Christians who stand in solidarity with the Jewish people. Glashouwer says a special North America tour by the Holland Choir helps reveal the plight of Israel. “Israel has not many friends. The Jewish people do not have many friends-and they need them desperately, right now, in the light of all that we’re seeing around us. We should pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Right now, they need the support more than ever.”
