Dr. Jerry A. Johnson, President & CEO of NRB, sent a letter today to Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) following the disrespectful treatment he received for expressing solidarity with Israel at a recent “In Defense of Christians” event.
Dr. Johnson wrote, “I am concerned that any United States Senator would be treated with such disrespect, regardless of the topic, and I am particularly dismayed that the subject greeted with such hostility is our solidarity with Israel.”
He also affirmed, “There is no doubt in my mind that Israel is America’s most important ally in the Middle East. For sure, the democratic principles of Israel promise Christians and others seeking religious freedom in the region the most hope for peace and liberty.”
