FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Nashville, Tennessee) - May 7, 2014 - Laurie Cardoza-Moore, Founder and President of pro-Israel advocacy group Proclaiming Justice to the Nations (PJTN), has added her voice to those national leaders today protesting the announcement of the presentation of an Ambassador of Humanity Award to President Obama under the auspices of Hollywood film director Steven Spielberg. Presentation will be made by the USC Shoah Foundation Institute for Visual History and Education in recognition of President Obama's "commitment to democracy and human rights." Noted Cardoza- Moore in a press briefing: "This action is absolutely outrageous and is an insult to the six million men, women and children who were murdered during the Holocaust, as well as the current State of Israel and the Jewish people throughout the world." Spielberg stated in making the announcement: "President Obama's commitment to democracy and human rights has long been felt. As a constitutional scholar and as President, his interest in expanding justice and opportunity to all is remarkably evident." Cardoza-Moore, who serves as an ECOSOC NGO Special Envoy to the United Nations for the World Council of Independent Christian Churches, added in her response to the announcement by Spielberg: "An award like this should be given for actions, not intentions or speeches. One need only look at Obama's Secretary of State, John Kerry, and the pathetic leadership and comments since his appointment. Kerry has a record of inciting 'terrorists' attacks' against innocent Israelis. Just last week he made the suggestion that in the absence of a two-state peace agreement with the Palestinian Authority, Israel would become an 'apartheid state.' The very suggestion that Israel should be forced by the Obama Administration to negotiate with the PA after they signed a reconciliation agreement with Hamas, a terrorist organization, is absurd." Active in pro-Israel support for more than a decade, through her founding and direction of PJTN, Cardoza-Moore has taken the message of the Biblical responsibility of Christians to support their Jewish brethren worldwide. To date, PJTN has reached more than 500 million people in 200 countries through TV programs and documentaries as well as through national and international media. PJTN's most recent documentary, Israel Indivisible, is currently being heavily promoted by both national and international television outlets. "In closing, I feel Spielberg's comments are a disgrace to Jews around the world," stated Cardoza-Moore. "They are also an affront to the thousands of Christians, Muslims and Israelis in the Middle East who are being slaughtered as a result of the failed Obama foreign policy. Furthermore, there is a well-documented increase in anti-Semitic attacks in Europe, Latin America and in the United States. In giving this award to Barack Obama, the Shoah Foundation compromises its integrity and Spielberg proves to be both contemptible and irrelevant in today's debate about Human Rights."
