Farah receives 'Tree of Life' Award at NRB

NASHVILLE – WND’s Joseph Farah was presented with the “Ed McAteer Tree of Life Award” Sunday night at the annual National Religious Broadcasters convention by Proclaiming Justice to the Nations, a group fighting anti-semitism and supporting the nation of Israel.

The presentation was made by the group’s founder, Laurie Cardoza-Moore.

PJTN educates media professionals, Christian leaders and Christians around the world about the biblical responsibilities to act against the “new anti-Semitism.” PJTN was founded in 2001 in response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

One of the most important objectives of PJTN is in educating Christians about their biblical responsibility to stand with their Jewish brethren and Israel, utilizing the powerful medium of documentary films to facilitate dialogue between the Christian and Jewish communities.

“I’m deeply honored to receive this award,” said Farah. “The late Ed McAteer was a great friend – as is Laurie Cardoza-Moore, who has taken up his fight to unite Christians and Jews in the U.S. and around the world.”

Farah is an Arab-American and former Middle East correspondent who has battled jihadists and creeping Saudi-style Shariah infecting institutions even inside the U.S.
