The AUCR eboard, of which I am a part, has published an op-ed in The Eagle. I encourage you to read it. An excerpt is presented below.
For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, for Jerusalem’s sake I will not remain quiet, till her righteousness shines out like the dawn, her salvation like a blazing torch. (Isaiah 62:1)
A few weeks ago my roommate just noticed that I have a US and Israeli flag hanging side by side in my room one day asked me, “You’re not Jewish why do you support Israel?”
As the campus representative for Christians United for Israel this year I have had the opportunity to participate on the American University’s Students for Israel executive board, attend many events in the DC area along with conferences in California earlier this month and Texas in January. At these events usually being one of the only Christians in attendance I am often asked how I ended up becoming so involved in pro-Israel advocacy.
