Covenant Journey takes Evangelical Christians on Israeli propaganda trip

Covenant Journey takes Evangelical Christians on Israeli propaganda trip

Last May, at the Israeli Embassy’s Annual Christian Solidarity event in Washington D.C., a new program for Evangelical Christians was announced.

The program, Covenant Journey, will send student leaders at colleges and universities on trips to Israel and will be modeled after the Taglit-Birthright Israel program.

The trip is supposed to brings young thinkers to learn the whitewashed Israeli narrative. The idea is to allow young minds to connect to the landmarks of Israel without learning the brutal Palestinian narrative.

Those who are interested only need to pay a $500 fee and share the Evangelical Christian faith. This low cost is due to the donations of several pro-Israeli and Evangelical groups, including Museum of the Bible and the Philos Project.

Most notably, however, is the donation from the well-known company Hobby Lobby. Hobby Lobby is known for sharing conservative viewpoints on various topics, such as female contraception and general “Christian” values.

Paul Singer, one of the keynote speakers at the event, addressed further benefits these trips would result in:

“I truly believe that Jews, Christians and all of Western civilization will be reaping the fruit of this project for years to come.”

Jezebel’s Jia Tolentino recently wrote:

“I wonder how the Covenant Journey trip planners will dance around the existence of Palestinian Christians, many of whom have been pushed out of the region by Israeli military occupation—or, if they will let any Palestinian-American Christians come along for the ride!”

It will be interesting to see the results of committing to this model of propaganda and whether it will achieve the desired results of making young Evangelical Christians more connected and devoted to Israel, or instead open their eyes to the misinterpreted, one-sided narrative that is being told about the occupied Palestinian lands
