Breaking news – in violation of freedom of religion and freedom of speech, the hotel that was slated to host the Israel Summit in Nashville, TN next week has canceled our contract. Unfortunately, threats and pressure from pro-Palestinian, pro-Hamas, pro-Iranian protestors has made it to the Bible Belt, and we’re disappointed that this Nashville hotel has decided to cave to the enemies of Israel AND democracy.

This is important however: The Israel Summit is NOT canceled. The enemies of God will NOT win, and this incredibly important summit is still happening May 20th-22nd, next week, in Nashville, TN.

Suggested Call Script:

Hi, this is ____, I’m calling because I heard that the Sonesta Hotel in Nashville, TN, caved in to threats by Hamas supporters and canceled The Israel Summit event scheduled for May 20-22nd. In doing so, the Sonesta Hotel has violated and continues to violate state and federal law. This is illegal, anti-Semitic, against American values, and reeks of religious discrimination.

I will not stand by and allow hotels and small businesses in America to go the same way as college campuses. The Sonesta and others cannot surrender to terror in violation of federal and Tennessee law. If this hotel chain surrenders to pro-Hamas, terrorist beliefs, where does it stop? The hotel must make the choice of either standing with American ideals or pro-Hamas terrorists. By acquiescing to antisemitic protests, the Sonesta joined them in their discrimination against the Jewish people in violation of the law.

I urgently appeal to you to dutifully uphold the rule of law and allow law-abiding American citizens to congregate and participate without fear in a peaceful assembly.

I am asking for you to:

1. Hold the Sonesta Hotel to honor their contractual obligations to The Israel Summit organizer, HaYovel.

2. Urge Nashville law enforcement to fulfill their duty to protect citizens participating in lawful activity at the Sonesta hotel against all enemies, “foreign and DOMESTIC.”

3. Fulfill your sworn duties to defend the constitutional rights of all Americans, including the rights to freedom of peaceful assembly, the right to freedom of thought, conscience, and religion, and the right to freedom of speech.

Thank you

  • Who knows someone in the music industry there? So many in the south are Christians! Could we use the Grand Ole Opry? Or a private residence? We should all be praying about who we know. I have a friend in the hotel business, reaching out to them. God has a way. We must invite Him to the problem.

    • I just heard that it’ll be at Dave’s place! DAVE RAMSEY stepped up!!! GOD BLESS HIM AND HIS BUSINESS ~ Psalm 122:6-7

  • You do not run from adversity with God on your side. You challenge it. There are enough Christians in Nashville to challenge this group of misguided loudmouths. If you move it they will just come to where you are. I do not support any group that gives in to this kind of presure

    • Dave Ramsey stepped up to host instead . Making it bigger and even better.
      “ You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies .”
      Psalm 23:5

  • I guess they don’t want my money! That’s OK, I’d pitch a tent then

  • God will bless those who bless Israel! Dave Ramsey and all who support Israel and attend this conference, you are about to be blessed! Praise Yahweh for the leaders who are still willing to stand up! We ALL bless you brother!
