The featured guests will be Ron Prosor, former Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations, and Daniel Goldwin, American-Israel Public Affairs Committee ( AIPAC ) Midwest Regional Director.[Story continues below video]
This is the one time of year when area Christians can join with the Jewish community in learning more about current events involving Israel and stand united in their support for the Jewish State. It is one of the most important and in-depth news and policy analysis of events in the Middle East that is held in the Midwest. Many local leading pro-Israel pastors attend as well as the Missouri and Kansas Congressional delegation.
In his more than two decades with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Prosor carved out an international reputation as one of Israel’s most distinguished diplomats. Between 2004 and 2007, he served as the Director General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, overseeing Israel’s 2005 disengagement from Gaza. Subsequently, Prosor spent four years as Israel’s Ambassador to the United Kingdom, where he earned plaudits for his articulate and forthright defense of Israel’s position.
Proser will give an insider scoop on conditions on the ground in the Middle East, an update on the anti-semitic effort to isolate Israel known as BDS (Boycott, Divest and Sanction) and what a new Trump administration will mean for peace in the region and Israel’s security. It is likely that the topic of moving the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Israel’s capitol of Jerusalem will also be discussed. Traditionally, high ranking congressional and senate delegations attend
Metro Voice is proud to be an AIPAC member and proud to serve as an official community sponsor.
