The former Clemson QB who gave credit to God for Clemson’s victory over Alabama in 2017’s College Football Playoff National Championship game, Deshaun Watson, journeyed to Israel with host America’s Voices in Israel, “a pioneering program begun ten years ago to bolster Israel’s image in the United States by bringing media and radio personalities to broadcast live from Israel.” America’s Voices in Israel’s about page further states that the program “organizes week-long missions to Israel for prominent headline-makers with widespread credibility, including leading journalists, prime-time media and Hollywood TV stars, as well as religious and political leaders in the Latino and African-American communities.” According to America’s Voices in Israel, “These high-profile opinion makers reach countless admirers, followers, and the general public. Using traditional and social media, they offer firsthand accounts of experiences in Israel, engaging large and ethnically diverse audiences. Their positive stories about Israel counter distortions and misrepresentations about the Jewish State, which often are reported in the media.”
