White House to Host Bibi

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be visiting his country's closest ally in a couple weeks. The Times of Israel's Eric Cortellessa reports that a White House press briefing today told of Netanyahu's February 15 visit:

The tête-à-tête between the two leaders will be their first since the president assumed power. They had their first phone call on January 22, in which they discussed the Iranian threat and Mideast peace process, according to readouts from both the White House and Prime Minister’s Office.

One subject certain to come up is Trump’s campaign pledge to relocate the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a proposal welcomed by Jerusalem. Since moving into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, however, Trump has wavered on that promise. “We’re doing very detailed studies on that and we’ll come out very soon,” he told the Christian Broadcasting Network on Friday. “I hate to do that because that’s not usually me: studies. It’s usually, I do what’s right. But this has two sides to it. Not easy.”

You can heed the biblical mandate “not to turn away from your own flesh and blood” (Isaiah 58:7) and provide a needy elderly Jew, like Olga, with food, heating fuel, warm clothes, and blankets this winter. Every day is important as the harsh cold winds descend upon the former Soviet Union. Please prayerfully consider giving your best and most generous gift to The Fellowship today for this lifesaving work.
