A pro-Israel coalition spoke out in Washington, D.C., Monday to support Israel and raise awareness of the possible attacks the country would face if a peace deal with Palestine was based on 1967 borders.
Supporters of the "Israel You're Not Alone" campaign launched a television ad to stand with Israel. The group is also set to meet privately with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Capitol Hill, Tuesday.
The commercial shows children running for shelter as rockets explode around them.
"This is what happens in Israel when they give away land for peace," the ad declares. "Don't let Hamas move their rockets any closer to innocent Israeli families."
"I've walked most of the land in Israel," retired Lt. Col. Jerry Boykin told the group of Christian and Jewish leaders Monday. "And I look at it as a land that is on a precipice of destruction if we agree to, or Mr. Netanyahu agrees to the '67 borders."
Janet Porter, a member of the group Faith2Action, urged Americans to stand with Israel.
"I don't think people understand the depth of the love for our best ally, our best friend in the region, perhaps our best friend in the world," she said.
A print campaign was also launched last week by the group. The open letter signed by more than four dozen leaders welcomed Netanyahu for his U.S. visit with the message, "We still stand with you."
