Speaker McCarthy Visits Israel

He honors that nation on its 75th anniversary.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is in Israel commemorating that nation’s 75th anniversary. Speaker McCarthy also met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem.

The Israeli prime minister said, “I have to say that the recent statement by 400 members of Congress in support of Israel was tremendous. You know, to get 95% agreement on anything today is no mean matter. And I think it expresses the strength of that alliance and the strength of that support.”

The House speaker stated, “The world is better when America and Israel are tighter. The world is safer. I think of what we’ve been able to accomplish.”

Speaker McCarthy continued, “Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East. There’s only two countries in the world that were conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all people are equal. And as we continue to grow that, I think the world will be safer, be stronger and our children will have a much beautiful world in the future.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the House speaker to be led by God as he meets with Israeli officials.
  • For members of Congress as most of them voiced support for Israel.
  • That the Lord would accomplish His purposes through the relationship between Israel and the United States.
