The party will give equal voice to Jews and Christians. The Jews [in the party] will consist of those who are religious, traditional and secular. The Christians [in the party] will be from all denominations, as well as Messianic believers. Eight percent of Israel’s population is made up of non-Jews, including Christians, and they are not properly represented. Our goal is to establish a strategic Jewish-Christian alliance to stand up for all Jews and Christians around the world who are facing the threat of terrorism, as well as to preserve Judeo-Christian culture around the world and in the State of Israel.”
