The Jerusalem Banquet and Strategic Briefing is set for May 17-18 in New York—and Gov. Mike Huckabee is the keynote speaker.

Huckabee is particularly well qualified to address the annual gathering of Christian and Jewish leaders from across America. In addition to serving as governor of Arkansas from 1996-2007—and vying for the Republican presidential nomination in 2008—Huckabee has gained a reputation for his penetrating analysis of national and international affairs. He currently hosts Huckabee on the Fox News Network.

“The mounting crisis in the Middle East makes this the most important Jerusalem Banquet we have ever hosted,” says Robert Stearns, a noted expert on Israel-Christian relations and executive director of Eagles’ Wings.

“A nuclear Iran poses a threat not only to Israel, but also to the United States. When combined with the tragic civil war in Syria and the increasing instability of the Middle East, the need for an informed response by America’s Christian leaders has never been more pressing.”

The Jerusalem Banquet begins with a gala event on May 17 and culminates with the Strategic Briefing on May 18. The Strategic Briefing will focus on the current situation in the Middle East, with special emphasis on the Iranian threat.

Hundreds of America’s leading evangelical pastors are expected to attend this event. Speakers include Ambassador Ido Aharoni, Consul General of Israel; Dr. Michael Little, president of the Christian Broadcasting Network; Steve Strang, president of Charisma Media; and leading experts on Middle Eastern affairs.
