They will support of a coalition which will advance freedom of religion, biblical principles, security and prosperity for her citizens as well as the furtherance of the Zionistic dream of a homeland for Jews."
Aaron writes, "As difficult as this internal discussion often is, it mostly IS an internal discussion among the Believer community here in Israel and there is no doubt that at the end of the day, the things we agree on are generally more important than the things which divide us."
