Evangelical Christians Take to Streets in Jerusalem to Support Israel

JERUSALEM – Thousands of evangelical Christians from 100 countries took to Jerusalem’s streets on Tuesday to show their support for Israel, marking the Jewish holiday of Succot, also known as the Feast of Tabernacles.

The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem has been organizing the march for several decades.

The march kicked off at Sacher Park, the biggest park in Jerusalem, drawing tens of thousands of people, including Jose Montoya, pastor of a church in Lima, Peru.

“The prophecy is in force during this time, and we have books like Zachariah’s, Isaiah’s or Jeremiah’s indicating that nations will gather in this place called Jerusalem,” Montoya told EFE.

Evangelical Christians believe that non-Jewish people are called to support the Jews so the Messiah will bless everyone.

For that to happen, it is necessary that Jews return to the Promised Land so Jesus can return for the final redemption.

Large groups of marchers shouted “We are from Brazil” while waving.

Representatives of many sectors of Israeli society also took part in the march.

The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem described the march as one of the most popular events for Christian tourists in Jerusalem.

The march generates estimated profits of between 15-17 million euros ($17.7-$20 million).

After the Six-Day War in 1967, Israel occupied East Jerusalem, claimed by Palestinians as the capital of their state, and annexed the city in 1980, a decision the international community has not recognized.
