for Israel by visiting the state

my last trip to Israel this
summer I was amazed at the
contrast between the
fearlessness of the many
Christian Evangelists I met

Richard Hellman, U.S.
counsel for the International
Christian Embassy in
Jerusalem as well as founder
of the Christian Israel
Resource Center Limited,
summarized the relationship
between the Evangelists and
Israel:
"There has been an
historical link between
Evangelical Christians and
Jews during the Reformation
(16th century); both groups
were persecuted by the
established state church. For
100 years Evangelical Chris-
tians played supportive roles
in the Zionist cause. Now,
more than ever, the support of
Evangelical Christians is
vital to maintain and
strengthen the political,
economic and strategic
alliance with Israel which the
Reagan administration has
forged."

survive politically and
economically in its struggle
against a rich, hostile
Moselm-Arab world and their
allies in both the East and
