SACRAMENTO, Calif., March, 21, 2019 — Rev. Samuel Rodriguez issues the following statement:
“I join with Israel and the Jewish people in enthusiastically applauding today’s decision by this administration to formally recognize what’s been true since God Himself gave the Israelites the Promised Land many thousands of years ago—and more recently in 1967 when Israel re-took control of the land during the Six-Day War—that the Golan Heights are the rightful, sovereign lands of Israel. If this territory were ever to fall under the control of another government or terrorist group hostile to the nation of Israel, it would only mean conflict, death and war for the entire region. It is my firm belief that this bold action, which has long been promised by other politicians, will do much to ensure lasting peace and stability throughout the Golan Heights and neighboring lands for many generations to come.”
Rev. Samuel Rodriguez is president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, executive producer of “The Impossible” with 20th Century Fox, and bestselling author of the upcoming book “You Are Next: Destroy What Has Paralyzed You and Never Miss Your Moment Again” (Tuesday, May 7, 2019 from Charisma House Publishing). He has been named by CNN and Fox News as “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 40,118 certified member churches in the United States and chapters in Latin America.
