The war for Israel

As the spiritual and temporal battle rages in Israel and the world prepares for escalation, Jews and Christians shoulder the burden in solidarity


WASHINGTON — Following the Hamas terrorist attacks in southern Israel on October 7 that left more than 1,400 Israelis and others massacred including babies, children and the elderly, Israel has declared war on Hamas with the stated intent of abolishing the Gaza-based terror network. Pro-Palestinian protests erupt in American campuses and cities and at our foreign embassies in multiple countries with American troops targeted in Iraq by another Iranian proxy terrorist group in southern Lebanon, Hezbollah.

“Save the Persecuted Christians has since our founding stood shoulder to shoulder with our persecuted Jewish brothers and sisters experiencing increasing levels of antisemitism throughout Europe and in America,” said executive director Dede Laugesen. “We are all one family, children of the Creator. Likewise, we are viciously hated and persecuted in a fallen world.”

Join Save the Persecuted Christians (STPC) today, Thursday, October 19, from 4:30 p.m. – 5:45 p.m. ET, for our next webinar, “The War for Israel,” as we gather a panel of experts to discuss what’s next and what can be done to stem the tide catalyzed by Hamas of radical antisemitism now being exposed to our horror in America.
