WASHINGTON – For the fifth year in a row, WND will be leading one of the largest annual tours of Israel from Nov. 2-12 – with the emphasis in 2017 on the restoration of U.S.-Israel relations and the deepening relationship between Jews and Christians.

This is your chance for briefings from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and new U.S. Ambassador David Friedman among others, as well as a tour led by Middle East expert and WND founder and chief executive officer Joseph Farah. He’s also the author of more than a dozen books including his newest – “The Restitution of All Things: Israel, Christians and the End of the Age.”

They will be joined by the absolute best Israeli guides in the business – experts on the land, the people, the Bible and the intersection of all three in the greatest controversy in the world today. These top guides have been screened and selected from among dozens the WND tours have worked with over the last five years.

If you want to explore Bible prophecy, the current Middle East conflict and get to know and understand why Israel remains the apple of God’s eye in the world today, this is the tour for you.

It will include all the key sites, strategic briefings by the top U.S. and Israeli experts, musical guests, insightful talks and lively discussions – all featuring the incomparable Jewish state and its people.

“This is like no other Israel tour you will ever experience,” says Joseph Farah, an Arab-American Christian believer who covered the Middle East as a foreign correspondent 35 years ago who has visited Israel a dozen times since. “You will learn why Israel is so important to God and how this relates to you, as a Christian believer in Jesus-Yeshua, the Savior of the world, the future King of Kings, the Lamb of God and the future Lion of Judah.”

You will hear from top Israeli leaders, military brass, see with your own eyes why the Jewish state is so strategically positioned in the hotbed of the Middle East.

“Nothing brings you closer to Jesus-Yeshua as a trip to the land and to Jerusalem, from where He will reign supreme over the whole world in the coming Kingdom,” says Farah. “Whether you’ve been to Israel before or not, prepare for the most politically exciting and spiritually meaningful adventure of your life.”

Chuck Norris, just back from Israel with his wife, Gena, had this to say about the 2017 WND Israel tour: “I would encourage everyone to check out WND’s ‘Journey to the Holy Land’ from Nov. 2-12, 2017, led by our friend, Joseph Farah, who is the founder, editor and chief executive officer of WND. He’s also an expert on Israel and the Middle East. Bibi and U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman have been invited to speak to the tour group, and I hope they do.”

While Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu cannot promise he will be able to address the group in November, all indications are positive that he will make every effort to address the group.

As for David Friedman, President Donald Trump’s designee as the new U.S. ambassador to Israel, WND is closely working with him on a date for meeting the group, even as he winds his way through the hurdles of the confirmation process and his anticipated move this year to the new U.S. Embassy Jerusalem.

“I’m optimistic,” says Farah, “After all, who can turn down Chuck Norris?”

Farah adds: “It will be a most exciting time to visit Israel this fall, as there are new political realities at play – a new administration in the U.S. with a markedly different view of Israel and the Middle East than his predecessor. It’s a historic moment. It’s a biblical moment.”
