Why we support Israel

As the fourth largest religious denomination in Hungary, and as a church based on the Judeo-Christian heritage, Faith Church Hungary acknowledges the State of Israel’s right to exist and to defend itself – says Tamas Pajor, participant of the Geneva rally to support Israel.

Ever since the State of Israel was born in 1948, Israel has been the country that was attacked. For this reason, the Jewish state acted legitimately when it practised its right to self-defense and proportionate military response both from the perspective of international law and both from a moral perspective. Israel has stuck to the norms of international law and the code of war.

It is disturbing that while Islamist terrorism that was unleashed since 2011 has claimed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in Syria and Iraq amidst the indifference of the international community and the active support of some Middle-Eastern countries, while the diabolic ideology of Jihadist Salafism is threatening the lives of millions of Christians, Druze, Yazidis and Shiites, just because of their religious affiliation, certain international institutions are preoccupied with “investigating” the terribly prejudiced allegations of supposed “war crimes” of Israel – the conclusions of which “investigation” could be foreseen from the start.

Israel is fighting for its existance against the same mass-murder ideology which is threatening the existance of the free Western world. For this reason the anti-Israel bias of certain international institutions and a part of the western media is not only immoral, but it is also self-destructive.

Faith Church welcomes and supports the demonstration being held in Geneva, which acknowledges Israel’s right to existence and self-defense and demonstrates* against the anti-Israel bias of the United Nations and other international institutions.

Tamas Pajor is a member of Faith Church, a major Pentecostal church in Hungary. The community is one of Europe’s largest Evangelical Christian churches, and the country’s fourth most supported church. A large delegation of Faith Church Hungary took part in the Geneva rally to support Israel.
