Jonathan Elkhoury, spokesman for the Christian Empowerment Council, led by Father Gabriel Naddaf, joins VOI’s Josh Hasten.
Elkhoury says his organization runs a pre-military program helping Christian youth in Israel prepare for their IDF service, pointing to the fact that more and more Christians are volunteering for the Israeli military each year. He stresses that while Christians are persecuted throughout the Middle East, Israel is the only safe haven for them. The Council also helps integrate Christians in Israel into society in general. listen now
