ACLJ Profile Completion


It’s an important moment for our ally Israel. The Israeli election rapidly approaches, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu faces a true challenge.

Today on the show, we welcomed special guest Jonny Daniels, former paratrooper in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and Israeli political insider. Jonny is now the Founder and Executive Director of From the Depths – an organization dedicated to preserving the memory of the Holocaust and honoring Christians who helped save Jews during World War II.

Jonny came in to share an update on the political climate in Israel, as the Israeli people prepare for next Tuesday’s election. As Jonny explained, Prime Minister Netanyahu – who has been a friend to America and President Trump – does face firm opposition, including from an emerging third party.

By mid-day next Tuesday, we should have a good idea which party won the most votes, which will determine who will be the Prime Minister of Israel. Despite the opposition, Jonny’s bet is on current PM Benjamin Netanyahu.

We also reminded you about the discharge petition filed by Republican Congressman Steve Scalise to try to force a vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. Speaker Pelosi and Democratic leadership have been blocking the vote. At last count, the petition had 198 of the necessary 218 signatures to force a floor vote.

We provided you with a targeted list of those Representatives that have still not signed the petition and are asking you to contact their offices and demand they put their name on the petition and force an end to pro-abortion Speaker Pelosi’s obstruction.
