QUESTION: I've noticed you make frequent trips to Israel. 
 
ANSWER: Well I've been coming since 1973. My first trip was when I was 17, and I've been bringing groups here in since 1981 and now I am coming three to five times a year. I feel that part of my life's mission now is to encourage people to understand what Israel is all about. To understand the strategic and vital relationship with the United States and also to recognize how many untruths are told about Israel every day by the international press, whether it's about BDS - Boycott Divestiture Sanctions movement, whether it's about human rights or manner of treatment in Gaza against Hamas, 90% lies, and I say that because I've been here and seen the country, with my own eyes. I know first hand, what this country is about, so that's part of why I keep coming.

QUESTION: How do you see the relationship between Israel the present American administration?

ANSWER: I think it's better than it's ever been. He truly loves Israel, he respects Israel, he supports Israel. Not only as a strategic American ally, but he recognizes the Biblical significance of this land and the importance America really exercises to support her. So I am so proud of the president for the unwavering support to the Land of Israel.

QUESTION: Regarding the recognition of Jerusalem and the moving of the embassy. Where would you like to see American policy developing towards Israel in the next two and a half years of the Trump presidency?

ANSWER: Well, I'd like to see him continue to recognize Judea and Samaria as the legitimate boundaries of the Land of Israel. I'd like for us to continue to join with Israel in pressuring Iran, to stop their insanity in trying to develop weaponry that would kill Israel and the United States. I want to see us continue to let the world know that there will be no daylight between the us and Israel.

QUESTION: The United Nations declared the Tomb of the Patriarchs to be a Palestinian heritage site and some people see no Jewish relationship or connection to a place like this or the to Temple Mount in Jerusalem. When you see these reports, what goes through you head?

ANSWER: Obviously a whole lot more than goes through the heads of the people that say there's no Biblical connection between the Jewish people and Hebron and between the Jewish people and Jerusalem. It's the only religion for which there is a connection other than Christianity, which is built upon Judaism, so its nonsense. This is part of the incredible lies that are told. But this is an extraordinarily important place. The birthplace of Judaism, and its nonsense to think otherwise. To try to pretend there isn't, it's almost like saying the Vatican has nothing to do with the Catholic Church. 

QUESTION: What message do you want to leave the people of the State of Israel as a governor, a politician, and a strong friend of Israel?

ANSWER: To let them know that in America, overwhelmingly people support Israel, and especially from my community, the evangelical community, which is a strong community, people believe in the Bible, that those that bless Israel will be blessed, and those who curse Israel will be cursed. We'd like to be blessed and we're going to stand strong with our friend and our ally.
