“Thou art my covert and my shield; in Thy word do I hope. Depart from me, ye evildoers; that I may keep the commandments of my God.” Psalms 119:114 (The Israel Bible™)
When the United Nations (UN), in October 2016, passed a contentious anti-Israel resolution denying the Jewish connection to the Temple Mount and Western Wall in Jerusalem, publisher of The Israel Bible and founder of Israel365 Rabbi Tuly Weisz decided to go full-steam-ahead and “Bombard Them With Bibles”.
“Anyone who can disconnect the Jewish nation from Jerusalem has not read the Bible,” he explained to Breaking Israel News.
“Therefore, we felt that the The Israel Bible, which delineates the connection between the God, the people and the Land of Israel, must be accessible to the leaders of the nations.”
Rabbi Weisz visited United Nations headquarters in New York last week in order to personally deliver a copy of The Israel Bible. Upon his arrival, Rabbi Weisz met with his guide for the day, a UN employee, who told him an incredible fact.
After warmly greeting Rabbi Weisz, the guide explained that she was a Christian Zionist who proudly displays an Israeli flag propped up on her desk and a Jewish calendar hanging over her computer – and she’s not the only one at the UN who supports Israel.
“There are few places today that represent anti-Israel hostility and reject Biblical truth like the United Nations headquarters in midtown Manhattan,” noted Rabbi Weisz. “I therefore didn’t know what to expect when I arrived to deliver The Israel Bible to UN delegates as part of our campaign to ‘Bombard the UN with Bibles.’ Meeting my guide gave me hope.”
The guide told Rabbi Weisz that an overwhelming number of UN employees are vehemently anti-Israel, but she and a small group of others meet each week to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
“I was shocked and touched to find out that deep in the halls of the UN are Christians like this woman who believe that God placed them there in order to serve as watchmen who are playing a unique role in defending the Jewish people,” said Rabbi Weisz.
While at the UN, Rabbi Weisz presented a copy of The Israel Bible to Israel’s UN Ambassador Danny Danon. Just a few weeks earlier, Ambassador Danon had responded to the Security Council’s condemnation of Israel and denial of Jewish sovereignty by raising up a Bible in his hand and stating, “This book holds 3,000 years of Jewish history in Israel and no one can dictate or change that fact!”
Rabbi Weisz expressed his appreciation to Ambassador Danon for his courage in bringing Biblical truth to the attention of world leaders despite their hostile reception, just as the Jewish people have been doing for thousands of years.
Rabbi Weisz concluded his visit in the General Assembly Hall, where he proudly held high The Israel Bible at the very podium from which so much anti-Israel venom spews forth. “I offered a prayer that these so called world leaders would submit themselves to the one book that honors the God, the people and the Land of Israel, the Bible,” smiled Rabbi Weisz. “I pray that our efforts bring about the day when the leaders of the world gather, not to deny God, but to unite together and recognize the One, True God of Israel.”
