In the recently published Israel Today article entitled "Messianic Leaders Invited to Mar-A-Largo to Promote Pro-Israel Initiative," (reprinted below) it infers that perhaps General Klifi-Amir, National Director and CEO of Friends of the IDF, is or may be currently advocating for the Alliance for Israel Advocacy’s One State Solution initiative. Joel Chernoff, Executive Director for the Alliance for Israel Advocacy (AIA), has requested the following correction/clarification:
Major General Klifi-Amir, CEO of Friends of the IDF charity, has not endorsed the One State Solution initiative as proposed by the Alliance for Israel Advocacy (AIA) nor has he or is he joining with AIA and advocating on its behalf.
Messianic Jewish leaders were invited to participate in a recent pro-Israel event hosted at US President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in South Florida.
The American Pro-Israel PAC (APIP), a new pro-Israel Christian initiative, brought together over 300 influential Evangelical Christians, as well as traditional and Messianic Jews.
According to Joel Chernoff, Executive Director of the Messianic Alliance for Israel Advocacy, Messianic Jews played a major role in the program, which featured Jonathan Cahn as one of the speakers. “To my surprise, there was great interest in who we were and even awareness of our efforts with a One State Solution (OSS) and Opportunity Grant Bill we are introducing to Congress,” Chernoff said.
The Messianic plan includes financial incentives for potential host countries to absorb Palestinians willing to leave Gaza and the biblical heartlands.
Several members of the President’s Evangelical Council were present to promote the new Christian pro-Israel organization. “Promises were made to 'walk' the OSS into the President (Trump) to make sure he understands it and has it at the ready for his soon-to-be-revealed Peace Plan,” Chernoff said. “Many great new friends were made that can help us advance our advocacy efforts on behalf of the State of Israel and our Jewish people in general,” he continued. “One in particular was Major General Klifi-Amir, CEO of the powerful Friends of the IDF charity here in the US.”
Chernoff, who is also General Secretary of the Messianic Jewish Alliance of America (MJAA), believes that as the Messianic community seeks to serve God and the Jewish people, God will lift the Messianic Jewish community onto the world stage as it relates to Israel and the spiritual restoration of the Jewish people.
