[Release] Samuel Rodriguez: Trump’s Middle East plan is ‘a remarkable vision for peace’
Sacramento, Calif. — Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, releases the following statement on President Trump’s plan for peace in the Middle East:
“I want to commend the president and his team — led by Jared Kushner — for developing a remarkable vision for peace that has the actual potential to transform the lives of millions throughout the Middle East. This plan reflects a clear-eyed and fact-based approach that takes into account the economic, religious and political complexities of the region and it demonstrates what is possible when a commitment to peace and justice transcends the allure of political power. Now, it is time for the Palestinians to do their part and come to the table, for the sake of the young people in the region who are the chief victims of the intransigence of the Palestinian leadership.”
Rev. Dr. Samuel Rodriguez is president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, executive producer of “Breakthrough” with 20th Century Fox and bestselling author of “You Are Next: Destroy What Has Paralyzed You and Never Miss Your Moment Again” (Charisma House Publishing). CNN and FOX News have called him “the leader of the Hispanic Evangelical movement” and TIME magazine nominated him among the 100 most influential leaders in America.
The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference is recognized and identified by Time Magazine, New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Christianity Today, Charisma Magazine, NBC, Telemundo, Univision, Fox News and CNN as America’s largest and most influential Hispanic/Latino Christian organization with more than 40,000 certified member churches in the United States and chapters in Latin America.
