FRC's Tony Perkins Wraps up Visit to Israel as a part of 'Christians in Solidarity with Israel' Trip

JERUSALEM, Aug. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Family Research Council President Tony Perkins is wrapping up a visit to Israel this week as a part of the "Christians in Solidarity with Israel" trip, hosted by the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB).  He met with several high level Israeli officials including Nir Barkat, Jerusalem's mayor and advisors to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.   Perkins' national radio show, Washington Watch, broadcast live from Jerusalem during Perkins' trip.

Perkins made the following comments about his trip during which he observed missile attacks on Israel:

"We came to see first-hand what is happening in Israel, show our support for Israel's right to defend itself, and remind Christians to pray for Israel. 

"Near the Gaza border, I met an Israeli man in a bomb shelter whose recently vacated house was hit and destroyed by a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip.   Tragically, missile attacks have become a way of life.  However, it is not the missile attacks they fear the most but the underground tunnels of terror.    

"During our meeting with the mayor of Jerusalem, we read Psalms 122:6.  This Scripture took on a deeper meaning sitting with the mayor of Jerusalem knowing that he was leading the city we have been instructed by God to pray for. We prayed for him and then walked outside on the terrace overlooking the entire city. Psalm 122 does not have an expiration date.  This is why we continue to emphasize the need for American Christians to remain steadfast in prayer for the peace of Jerusalem so that all the people of that region, Jewish and Palestinian, can live without fear. In addition, we must not forget the many Palestinian Christians who are under the control of Hamas. We also stand with those in the West Bank and Gaza who truly desire peace.

"Evil unleashed is the only way to describe what is taking place in the Middle East.  Thousands of missiles are raining down on Israel at the same time Christians are being slaughtered across Iraq and Syria.  Sadly, we are seeing the ongoing consequences of the failed foreign policy of the Obama administration. 

"Israel is truly an oasis of freedom in a bad neighborhood.  It's the only place in the Middle East where Christians can live out their faith without persecution.  America's commitment to Israel's security is and must remain sacrosanct - especially now as it defends itself from terrorism," concluded Perkins.

Those joining Mr. Perkins and Dr. Johnson included Kay Arthur, Co-Founder, Precept Ministries; William A. Blount, President, Blount Communications Group, and Chairman, NRB Board of Directors; Richard P. Bott II, President & CEO, Bott Radio Network; Annette M. Garcia, President/GM, Son Broadcasting Co.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints.

We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
