Falling bombs, a war and tourists fleeing the country did not stop 76-year-old American Evangelical Christian leader Pat Robertson from giving his support to Israel on an unplanned solidarity visit.
At a press conference in Jerusalem, Robertson expressed his unending support for Israel and that the majority of Americans understand the situation – that Israel has been attacked by terrorists in the same way America was attacked by terrorists.
“I am here to say I love Israel and that Christian Evangelicals in America stand with Israel in its struggle for freedom against Islamofascism, which is directed against Israel and all civilized nations of the world,” Robertson said.
The 700 Club TV host met for prayer with Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and the security cabinet.
The trip also included visiting residents in the north who are spending a vast majority of their time in bomb shelters.
