As a Middle East analyst and award-winning journalist, Mike Evans provides commentary on Middle East affairs for a variety of media. He has appeared on many network television and radio shows including Good Morning America, Cross Fire, Nightline, The Good Morning Show (Great Britain), and appears frequently on the Fox Network, CNN World News, NBC, ABC and CBS. His articles have been published in The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The Washington Times, The Jerusalem Post and others.
Mike Evans was an advisor to Prime Minister Menachem Begin and recommended Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his first political position.
Evans arranged an exclusive interview on Fox News Network with Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad during the 65th U.N. General Assembly in New York City in September 2010.
On July 13, 2007, Evans appeared on MSNBC debating with Arianna Huffington and Pat Buchannan while discussing his book, The Final Move Beyond Iraq. Evans wrote The Final Move Beyond Iraq because he believed that an Islamic revolution would sweep the Middle East using “democracy” as a tool to game the system, as this quote from the back cover reads: “An Islamic revolution is spreading and is on the brink of becoming America’s greatest threat since the Civil War.” That discussion can be viewed HERE.
He also appeared on MSNBC with Tucker Carlson debating the belief that democracy was going to solve the Middle East problems. Evans predicted it would be used to birth an Islamic revolution. That video can be viewed HERE.
Evans is a member of the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. For more than three decades he has covered strategic events worldwide, such as the Middle East Peace Conference in Madrid and the 43rd General Assembly of the United Nations’ specially convened session in Geneva. He most recently covered the International UN Conference on Afghanistan in The Hague, Netherlands, and the UN Durban Review Conference in Geneva, Switzerland.
He serves as the Executive Director of The Corrie ten Boom Fellowship, as well as Chairman of the Board of the Corrie ten Boom Foundation in Ha’arlem, Holland, which operates the ten Boom Holocaust Museum. He also founded The Jerusalem Prayer Team with a reunified Jerusalem’s second mayor, Ehud Olmert. It is a direct outreach of the Corrie ten Boom Fellowship. He founded Churches United with Israel, Inc., the Middle East Media Group, the Evans Institute of Middle East Studies, The Jerusalem World News and TimeWorthy Books.
Evans is a Christian Zionist who, with Prime Minister Menachem Begin, founded the present Christian Zionist movement. He was present at the National Prayer Breakfast in 1982 when a committed group of evangelicals formally pledged their allegiance to support of the nation of Israel.
Members of the group included Dr. Ben Armstrong, Executive Director of National Religious Broadcasters; Congressman Robin Beard; Rabbi David Ben-Ami; Dr. Bill Bright, John Conlan, former Congressman; former Alabama Governor Fob James and Mrs. James; ministry leader Derek Prince; Rev. James Robinson; and Congressmen Mark Siljander and Albert Lee Smith.
From this point forward, Christian Zionism flourished with the support and visibility it was given by Evans and other prominent evangelicals.
