I was honored to be part of the Middle East Briefing panel last month at the 7th Annual Christians United for Israel (CUFI) Summit at the Washington Convention Center.
Sen. Joe Lieberman, American Jewish leader Malcolm Hoenlein, and Ari Fleischer—former press secretary for President George W. Bush—were also on the panel and gave stirring, heartfelt speeches with some humor thrown in for good measure.
Former GOP presidential candidate Gary Bauer moderated and we were directly preceded by a live satellite address from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Needless to say, I was surrounded by a whole lot of wisdom, talent, leadership, and experience and was honored and humbled to share a stage with some true giants for the cause. Oh, and I had to speak last. No pressure or anything.
But hey, I think it all worked out. See what you think. You can click on the viewer below to watch my full speech from the CUFI Summit, addressing the Iran and Muslim Brotherhood threats.
By the way, the horn-like sound you hear towards the end of the speech as I quote from Scripture is the joyous blowing of shofars from the crowd—there were some 5,000 people in attendance. What a day!
