The Feast of Tabernacles has become a magnet in Jerusalem, drawing tens of thousands of Evangelical Friends of Zion from every continent. They come to express their love for and solidarity with the Jewish people. The pilgrims come to pray for peace in Jerusalem and extend their blessings to Israel. They also celebrate the joy of Sukkot by marching in the streets of Jerusalem. They come from China, Germany, Russia, South Africa, Austria, Brazil, the United States, and more.
Indeed, the nations of the world were out in force this year in Jerusalem during the festival, known also as the Feast of Tabernacles. There were Jews and Christians, locals and visitors, the latter hailing from the four corners of the earth — the Americas, Asia, Africa and the Far East.

The Friends of Zion Museum (FOZ) led the way in educating and welcoming thousands of visitors during the seven-day period. Jerusalem was filled pilgrims from some 80 nations who came for the Feast of the Tabernacles celebration that is sponsored annually by the International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem. These true and enthusiastic Christian Friends of Israel flock to Israel to bask in the joyous atmosphere of the feast and to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
To help acquaint Christian visitors to the museum, FOZ set up a large, colorful display inside the main venue for the Feast of Tabernacles events. Guides at the museum welcomed the many eager groups to take the special tour beginning every 15 minutes and operating until past 10:00pm daily to accommodate the pilgrims.
These pilgrims are unapologetically pro-Israel Christian Zionists. Evangelicals have become a dominant force of support globally for Israel. Recently, when President Donald Trump visited Israel forty-seven billboards greeted him in the city of Jerusalem. They were sponsored by Mike Evans, founder of the Friends of Zion Museum in Jerusalem, and a member of the Trump Founding Faith Board. The originating chairman of the museum was the late President Shimon Peres.
In December 2017, President Trump was presented with the Friends of Zion Award by Dr. Evans. The event was attended by Vice President Mike Pence, Senior Advisors Jared and Ivanka Trump Kushner, as well as faith leaders representing over 150 million Christians globally. The award has also been presented to US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, Jared Kushner, and Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt.
Other distinguished recipients of the Friends of Zion Award are 43rd President of the United States George W. Bush, Crown Prince Albert II of Monaco, former president of Bulgaria Rosen Plevneliev, President Jimmy Morales of Guatemala, and President Horacio Cartes of Paraguay.
In May 2018, the United States officially opened its new Embassy in Jerusalem. The Friends of Zion Museum launched a massive campaign commemorating President Trump and the State of Israel, with 150 bus billboards. Similar campaigns welcomed the president and vice president when they each visited the State of Israel.
Dr. Evans hosted a gala dinner commemorating the historic embassy move. The event featured Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin, United States Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, Special Representative for International Negotiations, and Senior Advisor to the President Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump Kushner.
The Friends of Zion Museum is enjoying capacity crowds; so much so that its doors are now open an hour earlier and remain open five hours later—from 8:00 AM to 11:00 PM. In two short years, this initiative has mobilized 28 million friends on social network globally. One of their enterprises is the Jerusalem Prayer Team which has almost 50 million friends worldwide and is the top Facebook site in Israel.
When asked to what he attributed the astounding success, Evans replied, “Israel has always had these amazing friends. The only thing that has not happened in the past is that no one has taken time to activate and educate them. We are utilizing the social network to do so.
That is the reason we created Israel’s first smart museum that uses videomapping and rotoscoping technology. It is connected to social networks.”
The Friends of Zion Museum reveals fascinating stories emphasizing the support and heroism of the many friends of the Jewish People and the State of Israel. It serves as a portal to fight global anti-Semitism and to stand strong against the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement. The governing board is honored to include Dan Halutz former IDF Chief of Staff, General Yossi Peled, and many more noted Israelis.
Dr. Mike Evans is the Founder of the Friends of Zion Museum and a #1 New York Times bestseller with 81 published books.

JNS.org – Rabbi Shlomo Tawil, director of Chabad-Lubavitch in Rosario, Argentina, was recovering at home after being assaulted by three youths on Sunday night during the holiday of Shavuot.
According to neighbors who came to the rabbi’s aid, the attackers shouted antisemitic insults at the rabbi, and began hitting him in the head and abdomen, reported Chabad.org.They then threw him to the floor, kicked him and trampled his hat before fleeing.

Thousands of Palestinians rioted on the Israel-Gaza Strip border on Friday, hurling rocks, firebombs and explosive devices at IDF troops.
Also on Friday, numerous blazes were ignited in southern Israel by incendiary balloons sent over the border from Hamas-ruled Gaza.
Early Friday morning, the Israeli Air Force struck several Hamas targets in Gaza, in response to a rocket attack the previous night in which a religious school in Sderot was damaged.
On May 31, the cry went out from Times Square, New York City, to annihilate Israel and extend the terror war against the Jewish state to America.
As they did in Beirut, Berlin, London, Tehran, and Dearborn, Michigan, Israel-haters gathered at Times Square to call for Israel’s dissolution on the day the Iranian regime has determined to be “Al Quds Day,” that is, Jerusalem Day.
The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) posted a video of the event. In it, a series of speakers called over and over again for Israel’s annihilation, voiced support for terrorists and terrorism and called for the war against Israel to come to New York.
Nate Chase from the World Workers’ Party led the crowd in chanting, “We don’t want not two state! We want ’48!”
Leftists have never been as humorless, unfunny and touchy as they are now. And they’ve never poured as much time and money into late night comedy, Netflix comedy specials and assorted people angrily shouting things about Trump and their confused sexual identities into a microphone, as they are now.
Comedy, as supported by billion-dollar media corporations based in blue states that would legalize killing babies and heroin before they would permit gun ownership, has returned to its roots in Greek political life. Except the ancient Greeks thought that people insulting each other’s politics was funny and the modern Proggies think that the insults should be one-sided and delivered in an echo chamber.
The UCLA Daily Bruin and its editorial staff have made a mockery of the concept of a free press, opening their pages to terrorist political organizations and closing them to the opponents of terrorist propaganda and Jew hatred. The Bruin’s allegiance to the destroy-Israel left and failure to observe the core principles of journalism in a democracy was glaringly obvious in its coverage of a recent student government ruling.
The resolution passed on Tuesday, May 21, by the UCLA Undergraduate Students Association asserted that—contrary to all evidence and a long history of spreading the genocidal lies of Hamas terrorists, and harassing Jewish students and their invited speakers— the group Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) is not anti-Semitic.

The long-running dispute revolves — most recently — around an effort by the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on British Muslims, a cross-party formation of around two-dozen MPs in the British Parliament, to institutionalize the definition of Islamophobia in racial rather than religious terms.
The proposed definition has been opposed by many Britons, including British Muslims, who warn that it would effectively shield Islam from scrutiny and valid criticism.
The New York Times claimed that President Donald Trump does not care about his re-election campaign or about the policies he would seek to enact during a second term.
“In a recent overarching state-of-the-race briefing in Florida with Brad Parscale, his campaign manager, Mr. Trump was consistently distracted and wanted to discuss other things,
The New York Times got quite a scoop when, in an interview with its Jerusalem bureau chief David Halbfinger, U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman said that he favored Israel’s annexation of the West Bank. That was the lede of Halbfinger’s article, as well as in the headline. And that was also the way the story was played in virtually every one of the many publications that picked up on the story.
Every movement has a mission statement. “Make America Great Again” is the conservative one. (It’s the “Again” part that makes it conservative.) The enemies of making America great have one too.
If the radicals had red hats, they would say, “They’re Out To Get You.”
TOTGY has been the leftist motto since before Marx learned to shave and then decided to stop doing it. The arc of history may bend toward many places, but the black rainbow serviced by a snarling leprechaun with a PhD and a cocaine problem always begins and ends in the same paranoid place.
In certain circumstances, U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman said last week, Washington would recognize the annexation of Palestinian territories by Israel.
As expected, Friedman’s comments led to fierce criticism. The Palestinians already call him the “settler spokesman.”
But in fact, instead of blaming the settlers, the Palestinians can only blame themselves. And given that we are in the era of “narratives,” namely, lies that pretend to be history, we should pay attention to the facts.
