In a climate of increased anti-Semitism and unprecedented Islamic extremism, Huckabee explains “there is a distinct difference between good and evil... and Israel is good."
Jerusalem, Israel -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/12/2015 -- United with Israel (UWI), the world's largest grassroots pro-Israel community, has reached a significant milestone with 3 million supporters and counting.
Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas, has become number 3,000,000, while attending United with Israel's "Three Million Strong" celebration in Jerusalem on February 18, 2015.
"There is a distinct difference between good and evil – and Israel is good… I am proud and deeply grateful that you allow me to stand with you, United with Israel," said Huckabee at the event.
In 2012, Prime Minister Netanyahu was "honored to be the one millionth fan" of UWI.
Founder Michael Gerbitz remarked, "It is truly amazing that at a time when governments around the world are united in their condemnation of the State of Israel, we've been able to connect with millions of people – many in some of the most anti-Semitic countries – who are proud to stand united with Israel".
He explained that the "exponential impact of social-media powered outreach is dramatic when our community of 3 million supporters gives us access to half a billion people. We are able to convey the latest Israel news in the most truthful way. This is exactly what's needed to win Israel's battle of public opinion throughout the world."
As United with Israel tackles more challenges and continues its vital work of promoting Israel around the world, the paramount task of "growing the world's largest pro-Israel community from the millions into the billions is UWI's roadmap for the future," said UWI Executive Director David Zeit. "And we believe that the future is now."
Governor Huckabee concluded the 'Three Million Strong' celebration by saying that he was "happy, proud and deeply grateful that you allow me to stand with you, United with Israel."
