George Washington & Israel

by Peter A. Lillback

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
Many Americans are unaware that George Washington wrote to the Jewish people affirming his desire for their safety and political and civil liberty. Many do not know that when Washington prayed, he mentioned Israel by name and that Washington and the Founders hoped for the restoration of Israel. While it is true that Israel did not exist in Washington’s day, this book demonstrates that Washington’s views about Israel helped set the direction that American Presidents have taken toward Israel and answers the question, “Is it inherently American to be pro-Israel?”
Description
Dr. Lillback's insightful work researches the question, "Is it inherently American to be pro-Israel?" Yet, could the evidence from Washington's life and writings show that he knew far more about Israel than most thought possible? Many Americans are unaware that George Washington wrote to the Jewish people affirming his desire for their safety and political and civil liberty. Many do not know that when Washington prayed, he mentioned Israel by name and that Washington and the Founders hoped for the restoration of Israel. While it is true that Israel did not exist in Washington’s day, this book demonstrates that Washington’s views about Israel helped set the direction that American Presidents have taken toward Israel.
