GALILEE, Israel, Jan. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With the Trump administrations announced commitment to protect Middle East Christians and Vice President Pence's visit today in Israel; persecuted Christians struggling under the oppression of ISIS have just received the clear and powerful message that they are neither forgotten nor alone!
In a move of strong support for the plight of Mideast Christians, the government of Israel granted its first and only Christian radio license and frequency to international broadcaster, Strategic Communications Group after its president, Rev. John D. Tayloe appealed on behalf of the persecuted Christians in the region.
The VOICE OF HOPE – 1287 AM, a new 50,000-watt evangelical Christian radio station, began its Arabic broadcast service from the biblical region of Galilee, Israel on March 2017. The radio station is reaching populations of over 40 million living in Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Cyprus and Israel.
"Our strong friendship with Israel, our commitment to encourage Middle East Christians, along with our desire to share the Gospel of Peace with Muslims, makes the VOICE OF HOPE radio station a truly unique partnership for peace in the Middle East." John Tayloe went on to say, "Politics can not solve a thousand years of conflict. We believe that the answer is in the renewed Hope of God's word. The message of Hope delivered with love through the intimate and powerful medium radio."
Israel's Minister of Regional Cooporation, Tzachi Hanegbi said, "This radio station exemplifies the deep connection and unique bond that Israel has with the American people and between the Jews and the Christians. We are certain that the message of hope that will be brought by the station will be an uplifting tool and a benefit to our neighbors. The State of Israel supports any message of peace to the people in neighboring countries and this is why we decided to support the establishment of the Voice of Hope."
The VOICE OF HOPE is one of the loudest radio signals on the dial and its reach into five Middle East countries is unprecedented in a region where religious freedoms and individual rights are challenged everyday. The establishment of this Christian broadcast voice is a powerful tool for peace in the hands of Evangelicals who believe that the message and ministry of Jesus is relevant for today's overwhelming circumstances.
