In the wake of horrific Hamas terrorist attacks in Israel this weekend,  Salem Radio Network talk host Mike Gallagher hit the air first thing Monday (10/9) with an emergency campaign raising funds for Israeli victims through the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews. Gallagher’s campaign is also being highlighted on other Salem Media Group platforms including SRN News, TOWNHALL.com, several local morning show hosts including Mark Davis in Dallas and Joey Hudson in Greenville, South Carolina as well as TOWNHALL News.

Listeners are being urged to donate at The Mike Gallagher Show website www.MikeOnline.com ; funds will rush emergency supplies and other essentials to the hardest hit areas throughout Israel.

Mike Gallagher says his campaign is motivated by Scripture: “Those who bless Israel, God will bless. Those who curse her, he will curse. This is an enduring promise for everybody…and to know that this Holy land has been desecrated by such terrorism really compels Americans to step up and say ‘How can we help? How can we stand with Israel.’  “

Gallagher—who has personally visited Israel many times—adds: “The images are so horrific. Almost impossible to discuss in the air. People are so upset by what we’ve seen during the past 48 hours that I’m confident our audience will step up and help the people of Israel who have been through unspeakable acts of terrorism.”
