The Christian community in North America is remarkably diverse – demographically, theologically, politically – and on few issues more so than approaches to the Middle East. Across the spectrum, North American Christians have a deep and abiding commitment to peacemaking in the Middle East. Christians in the Holy Land are seen as a touchstone to the time and life of Jesus and Israel hosts a central role in understanding his life, ministry, and death.
For some Christians, Israel is a stronghold of divine justice and a Jewish return to sovereignty is seen as a fulfillment of biblical prophecy. For others, it is seen as a bastion of injustice, born in sin. In between is a broad swath pulled between the two poles.
The IAN works to educate about the importance of a two-state solution while mobilizing communities to oppose divestment from Israel.
