JERUSALEM, Israel – Israel held its 4th annual Christian Media Summit Sunday at the Friends of Zion Heritage Center in Jerusalem.

Dr. Evans recently participated in a delegation that met with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud in Saudi Arabia.
"There is no doubt in my mind who is quietly driving the amazing peace initiatives in the Gulf region. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman told our group the Palestinians can solve their problem by copying Israel. He also said educating children to hate Jews must stop, and that the world has zero-tolerance for terror being used to achieve political objectives," said Evans.
"I can say the brightest, most articulate, and most forward-thinking is Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman," he added.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked Israel’s “Christian Friends” and applauded the recent Abraham Accords – which saw Israel sign peace treaties with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.
“The historic Abraham Accord can provide a model of peaceful coexistence between all people and religions in our region and around the world. Israel will continue to do all that is necessary to seek peace with all our neighbors,” said Israeli President Reuven Rivlin.
The Friends of Zion Award was commissioned by the late Israeli President Shimon Peres.
Previous recipients include US President Donald Trump, former US President George W. Bush, Prince Albert II of Monaco, President Salome Zourabishvili of Georgia, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and others.
