A Tulsa pastor is in Washington DC for a movement called Christians United for Israel. Victory Christian Center's Billy Joe Daugherty says the goal is to be a louder voice for Israelis who believe it's their right to exist, defend their people and protect the land that is rightfully theirs.

"If Americans had rockets coming across our Mexican border or Canadian border, we wouldn't stand around and say please let the United Nations negotiate with Mexico or Canada. Our military would take action the first moment a rocket went into the air."

Christians United for Israel started in February; there are already more than 3,000 delegates.
