The insistent evangelical voice will ring out soon, and very close to the U.S. Capitol building. Scheduled for Sunday afternoon in Upper Senate Park, it’s the Rally for Israel, organized primarily by potential White House hopeful Mike Huckabee and Penny Nance, president of Concerned Women for America.

“It’s time for the United States to join together in prayer and support for Israel. I have been to Israel nearly 30 times over the past 41 years and have never seen the nation under such threat,” Mr. Huckabee observes.

“Israel is our closest ally and friend in the Middle East, and they are suffering due to the weak policies of the Obama administration. The president has done little to recognize the growing threat of Hamas. God has protected this tiny, but increasingly powerful nation, and it’s time for the United States to do the same,” he adds.

“As we focus as a nation on the many jihadist threats to Christians, we must also remember that these same people are plotting against Israel as well,” says Mrs. Nance.

Among the many speakers at the two-hour event: Zionist Organization of America president Morton Klein, Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol, Republican Reps. Trent Franks of Arizona and Vicky Hartzler of Missouri plus American Values president Gary Bauer. See their big doings here: RallyforIsrael.com

Among their many partners: the Faith & Freedom Coalition, the Media Research Center, Liberty University and Young America’s Foundation.
