Short Segment—Why I’m Pro-Israel and Not Anti-Palestinian, Part 2

When you have a conversation with someone about the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, it seems as though you have to draw a hard line in the sand: You either stand on Israel’s side or you stand with the Palestinians. However, our host and Bible teacher Chris Katulka believes you can be both pro-Israel and not anti-Palestinian. On last week’s program, Chris explained why he is not anti-Palestinian. This week, he’ll focus on the reasons why he is pro-Israel.

New York Times bestselling author Michael B. Oren’s memoir of his time as Israel’s ambassador to the United States provides a fascinating look inside the special relationship between America and its closest ally in the region. Ally is the story of that enduring alliance – and of its divides – written from the perspective of a man who treasures his American identity while proudly serving the Jewish state he has come to call home. This memoir is a testament to an alliance that was and will remain vital for Americans, Israelis, and the world.
