In his forthcoming book In Defense of Faith: The Judeo-Christian Idea and the Struggle for Humanity, David Brog takes aim at the media, from Hollywood to cable news political pundits, who claim "religion is the root of all violence in the world."

Brog, the executive director of Christians United for Israel founded by John Hagee, defends faith-based values of human rights and justice among many, and those who gave rise to their existence from Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement to Bono's campaign to end AIDS in Africa.

The Jewish writer tells readers that the most horrific atrocities against mankind occur when "science, philosophy and politics are detached from faith." "In the 20th century, the rejection of the Judeo-Christian idea by certain cultures enabled both slavery and genocide to return to the West, and to do so on a far greater scaled than ever before."

Brog says even people of other faiths such as Mahatma Gandhi, were inspired by the teachings of Christians.

David Brog lives in Washington, D.C., and is the author of Standing With Israel. He worked in the United States Senate for seven years, and was also the staff director for the Senate Judiciary Committee. Before working on Capitol Hill, Brog was an executive director at America Online and practiced corporate law in Tel Aviv, Israel, and Philadelphia.
