( The Israeli Knesset Christian Allies Caucus is mourning renowned Evangelical Pastor Myles Munroe, who was killed along with eight others in a plane crash in the Bahamas on Sunday.

The plane had exploded upon hitting a crane at the Grand Bahama Shipyard while trying to land in Freeport. Josh Reinstein, director of the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus, remembered Munroe as a frequent visitor to the Jewish state whose “faith and love of Israel was an inspiration to us all.”

“Israel had no better friend and the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus was honored to work with him,” Reinstein told the Jerusalem Post.

“It is utterly impossible to measure the magnitude of Dr. Munroe’s loss to the Bahamas and to the world,” added Bahamian Prime Minister Perry Christ. “He was indisputably one of the most globally recognizable religious figures our nation has ever produced.”
