    THE JERUSALEM POST ^ | Sep. 23, 2007
    This is the 27th year in which the International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem has been organizing its march of support for Israel. The ICEJ's annual Feast of Tabernacles series of events is slated to open on Thursday, but this year is different from all preceding years. This year the increasingly haredi-oriented Chief Rabbinate has seen fit to issue a ban forbidding Jews from joining the street celebrations in Jerusalem due to suspicions of "missionary activity" by the participating evangelicals. The ICEJ will be bringing more than 7,000 Christian pilgrims from some 100 countries this holiday. This has grown into Israel's...

Christian Embassy was founded by the late Dr. Bill Bright of Campus Crusade for Christ and ministers to diplomats, government leaders and military officers. The ministry holds prayer meetings each Wednesday morning at the Pentagon. The officers were said to be in uniform at the Pentagon when they expressed...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Army and Air Force are considering disciplinary action against seven officers -- including four generals -- who violated ethics rules by assisting a Christian group in the production of a fundraising video. The Pentagon inspector general found the officers were interviewed in uniform and ''in official and often identifiable Pentagon locations,'' according to a 45-page report. They made comments that ''conferred approval of and support'' to the evangelical group, Christian Embassy, ''and the remarks of some officers implied they spoke for a group of senior military leaders rather than just for themselves,'' the report stated.

    Liberal MPs are accusing Alliance MPs of souring Canada-U.S. relations by distributing newspaper articles and other related materials to American politicians highlighting the government's opposition to the war in Iraq as well as anti-American statements made by Grit MPs. Liberal MP Sarkis Assadourian (Brampton Centre, Ont.) said he learned about the situation during a recent trip to Washington, D.C., as part of the Canada-U.S. Inter-Parliamentary Group when one of his American counterparts, Republican Congressman Don Manzullo, showed him the documents. Mr. Assadourian said the incident cast a pall over the meetings, which took place during the war, and that he...
