Santorum Leads Solidarity Delegation to Israel

Verona, PA - Former U.S. Senator, former Republican presidential candidate and Chairman of Patriot Voices Rick Santorum will travel to Israel on Sunday, August 17, for a 3-day mission with prominent conservative and business leaders.

The trip will focus on three goals:

  • To show solidarity with the State of Israel - with her courageous people and leaders - who are engaged in a fight for their lives and freedom against the twin evils of Radical Islam and Repugnant Anti-Semitism.
  • To reaffirm the moral and strategic imperative of maintaining a strong, close, enduring U.S.-Israeli alliance.
  • To pray for the peace of Jerusalem and all who live in the Middle East. 

The trip will be mainly in Jerusalem and also include a visit to an Iron Dome facility.  The delegation will make visits to Mount of Olives, City of David, Mount Herzl Military Cemetery and other sites. 

Senator Santorum and the delegation will meet with Israel government and military leaders, Israeli soldiers, local residents directly affected by the violence, religious leaders, and Israeli Ambassador Ron Dermer.

The delegation will include:

  • Pastor Douglas M. Bankson, Pastor (Florida)
  • Dr. Mark T. Barclay, Pastor (Michigan)
  • Former Congressman Gresham Barrett (South Carolina)
  • Simon Conway, WHO radio host (Iowa)
  • Foster Friess, Businessman (Wyoming)
  • Pastor Cary Gordon, Cornerstone World Outreach (Iowa)
  • Quin Hillyer, nationwide columnist and writer (Alabama)
  • Greg Rothman, businessman (Pennsylvania)
  • Bob Vander Plaats, President of The Family Leader (Iowa)
  • Joel C. Rosenberg, author, will join the delegation upon arrival in Israel.

"This trip will be an important opportunity as representatives of the American people to show our solidarity with the people of Israel.  Our goal is to tell Israel's leaders and its people that Americans support them despite President Obama's inconsistent rhetoric and actions regarding their country," said Senator Santorum.

Senator Santorum served in the U.S. Senate from 1995-2007. He was a leader on U.S.-Israeli affairs, advancing American interests in the Middle East, and standing against the forces of Radical Islam and tyranny. He authored both the "Syria Accountability Act" and the "Iran Freedom and Support Act."  He also served eight years on the Senate Armed Services Committee where he led the fight before the attacks of September 11th, 2001 to transform our military from a Cold War force to meet today's threats.

In addition, Santorum led the Program to Protect America's Freedom at the Ethics and Public Policy Center from 2007 until 2011.  The program focused on raising awareness about the threats to America from anti-western groups.

Amen, So Be It.

Heavenly Father, I lift up this delegation to You for divine protection, for Christian encouragement of our friends and neighbors and allies in Israel, and for Your use of their dedicated hearts and souls for Your good purposes. I pray You will put down any threats of harm aimed at this delegation or those they hope to visit. May they be blessed to feel Your peace in Jerusalem, not as the world knows the semblance of peace, but the ultimate peace that You alone give to believers in Jesus. I pray in His name, Amen
