Islam in Focus–Andrew E. Harrod’s Israel Trip Review


Show host Andrew E. Harrod recently went to Israel to attend the Christian Media Summit in Jerusalem, an annual conference that the Israeli Government Press Office has hosted for Christian Zionists involved in media for the last three years.  The conference included excellent panels on Israel’s continuing struggles for self-defense and a day-long bus trip to the Golan Heights, including the new settlement of Trump Heights (Ramat Trump). 

A post-conference trip to Samaria in the disputed “West Bank” territories visited sites such as Shilo, the first tabernacle for the Ark of the Covenant when the Jewish nation entered the Holy Land following the exodus from Egypt, in effect Israel’s first capital.  Harrod also undertook personal explorations of Israeli history in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.  He will relate his experiences and observations and answer audience questions.
