The American Christian Zionist movement is led by Texas-based Pastor John Hagee, under the banner, "Christians United for Israel," an organization with thousands of neoconservative Evangelical followers. An apocalyptic visionary and Biblical literalist, some call Hagee the most dangerous man in the Middle East. Yet he is one of the most influential people on U.S. foreign policy toward Israel and Palestine.
Rev. Dr. Donald Wagner of North Park University and Rev. Dr. Stan Moody, of the Christian Policy Institute, will address this growing phenomenon at the 10th International Conference of the Holy Land Christian Ecumenical Foundation (HCEF).

Established in 1998 by a multi-denominational group of Christians to raise awareness about the plight of the indigenous Christians of the Holy Land, HCEF currently has offices in Bethlehem (Holy Land) and near Washington, DC, and administers humanitarian, educational and economic empowerment programs in Israel, Palestine and Jordan. Other conference speakers include retired U.S. Ambassador Philip Wilcox, Jr., President of the Foundation for Middle East Peace; Author Anna Baltzer, who will speak on her experience as a Jewish American woman in Palestine; His Beatitude Patriarch Michel Sabbah, Patriarch Emeritus of Jerusalem.
