Jerusalem Chairman's Conference 2019

From December 8-10, the legislative leaders of Israel Allies Caucus from around the world came up to Jerusalem for the 2019 Jerusalem Chairman’s Conference. This annual event brought 25 international members of Parliament who are leading the fight to combat BDS and the antisemitic labeling of Israeli products from Judea and Samaria.

You know the truth and there is no substitute for speaking the truth in the face of lies. It is the only way you can get the truth out. So I want to thank you for standing with Israel and for standing with the truth.

During the conference they toured in the Biblical Heartland of Judea and Samaria, met with Prime Minister Netanyahu and heard from policy experts and Israeli leaders from across the political spectrum.

The highlight of the touring day was dinner at Psagot Winery, which has recently been in the news for a court case in the European Court of Justice fighting legislation requiring special labeling of their’s and other Jewish products made in the Territories. The testimony of a Holocaust survivor of how Jewish products, homes and eventually people were labeled in the 1930’s punctuated that “Never Again” should not just be a declaration, but should require concrete action.
