The senior pastor of the multicampus Harvest Christian Fellowship explained that he considered the president's statement “critically important to Israel’s long-term health, stability, and the prosperity of Israel and her people.”

“The Golan Heights is part of land that God gave to Abraham and his descendants and has been controlled by Israel since 1967 following the Six-Day war,” said Laurie.

“It was once used to stage attacks against Israel by those hostile to her very existence, and terror groups largely funded by Iran, would do so again if given the opportunity.”
