Sean Feucht, Eric Metaxas, and Russell Johnson Set To Lead ‘United for Israel March’ at Columbia University

The protests escalated at the New York Ivy League university after New York police, at the request of Shafik, removed tents and arrested over 100 demonstrators. One of the protestors charged with trespassing was Isra Hirsi, the daughter of Democratic U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar.

On Monday (April 22), in an attempt to get students, faculty, and staff off the campus, the university announced that in order to “deescalate the rancor and give us all a chance to consider next steps,” all classes would be held virtually.

Shafik had hopes of clearing the pro-Palestinian protestors’ campsite by midweek but announced on Wednesday (April 24) that the university had extended the deadline for another 48 hours.

Other campuses across the U.S. have also reported pro-Palestine protests, including Yale University, Temple University, and Miami University in Ohio.

United for Israel March Featuring Sean Feucht, Eric Metaxas, and Russell Johnson

Pastors, political leaders, celebrities, and Christian influencers are scheduled to join Sean Feucht, Eric Metaxas, and Pastor Russell Johnson on Thursday night (April 25) for an event they are calling “United for Israel March.”

Even “Everybody Loves Raymond” actress Patricia Heaton shared the event saying, “Friends, here is an opportunity to stand up for humanity, for decency, for democracy, for Judeo-Christian values, for Israel, for America, for Western civilization.”

Actor Michael Rapaport also promoted the event, but posted the wrong date.

“For the last several days, Americans and people all over the world have been horrified to see the violence, abuse and the blatant rise of anti-semitism on college universities across America,” the controversial Feucht told ChurchLeaders.

“I believe the world is looking for a response from the people of God,” Feucht added. “We’re going to respond to this.”

He added, “There are moments like this where the church and the people of faith cannot keep scrolling, they have to stop, and they have to respond.”

“We are going to stand with the people of Israel because God calls his people to do so,” Feucht said. “We are going to rally the church; we are going to rally synagogues; we are going to rally Jewish leaders; we are going to rally political leaders; and we are going to make a stand.”
