Showing Support for Israel

Stevensville residents Dick and Betty Harris say they are concerned about current unrest in the Middle East and a growing hatred for the nation of Israel. They’re hoping to raise awareness by distributing signs to area residents to show support for the Jewish State.

“In the past, the U.S. government has taken a strong stand in the defense of Israel, but that is no longer the case,” Dick Harris says. “Therefore, Americans—Christians and non Christians—are coming together to proclaim support for Israel and the Jewish people. We must never allow the persecution of an entire people to merely be ignored.”

The Harrises say their effort to support Israel is meant to be a uniting force and a stand for a nation that must not fall or fail. “If one falls, we all fall,” Dick Harris says.

The Harrises are distributing the posters to anyone who wants to show their support for Israel. They’re asking for a $5 donation to help cover costs. Those who would like to receive a poster to place in their yard should call 570-746-3209 on or after August 1.
