PRESS RELEASE: HILC ON THE HILL
On September 8-9, 2015 the Executive Leadership Team from National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference and Hispanic Israel Leadership Coalition (HILC) went to Washington DC to meet with Congressmen and Senators to voice their concern against the Iran Nuclear Deal.
Private Meeting with Senator Ted Cruz
The Team met with key Senator Ted Cruz and Ambassador Reuven Azar, Deputy Head of Mission. Pastor Mario Bramnick, President of HILC participated in the Anti-Iran Rally on the Capital Lawn.
“The Iran nuclear agreement will be a disaster for the national security of America and Israel,” Bramnick continued. “Iran is openly committed to the destruction of America and Israel, and we simply cannot afford to risk our future on a bad agreement that paves their way to a nuclear Iran.” Susan Michaels, Board of Director for HILC and U.S. Director of ICEJ stated “Before we arrived on Capitol Hill we had already heard the news that the Senate had failed to get a veto-proof majority to vote against the deal,” said Susan Michael.
“So, we used these meetings to let these pro-Israel members of Congress know that we represent millions of grassroots Christian opposed this very dangerous deal with Iran, and we asked them to do everything they could to mitigate this deal with further legislation.”
HILC was formally launched in April 2015 as a subsidiary of NHCLC and is positioned to be the world’s largest, most influential Pro-Israel Latino entity. HILC’s mission is to engage, empower, and equip the Latino Christian evangelical community in full support of Israel and the Jewish community around the world.
