Patriot Mobile, self-identified as “America’s only Christian conservative wireless provider,” flew an airplane banner that said “God Bless Israel” over Columbia University during the on-campus protests last week.

A company official told The Dallas Express that Patriot Mobile’s goal is to stand with Israel and the Jewish community and let them know that they are loved and supported during this difficult time.

Universities nationwide over the past weeks have been roiled by anti-Israel protests. At Columbia University, anti-Israel agitators barricaded themselves inside the main campus building, and hundreds were arrested this week by New York police.

A news release from Patriot Mobile stated that the company is co-sponsoring more fly-overs with pro-Israel banners at the University of California Los Angeles and the University of Southern California. There are also fly-overs planned for the University of Texas Austin, the Texas Capitol in Austin, Harvard University, and Boston College.

“We want to encourage our Jewish students to let them know that Christians across this country support them and that we stand with Israel,” Patriot Mobile CEO Glenn Story said. “Antisemitism has no place in America, and we stand against this hate.”

Following the October 7 attack on Israeli citizens by Hamas terrorists, Patriot Mobile co-sponsored several events to show its support of Israel, including the “Fort Worth Stands with Israel March and Prayer Rally” on November 5.

“This is a spiritual war, not a political one. The rise in antisemitism in this country is revealing the radical left’s deep hatred and racism. This should be a wake-up call to all Americans to stand against this bigotry,” Patriot Mobile Chief Communications Officer Leigh Wambsganss told DX.

Wambsganss said the tactics used by the anti-Israel agitators are reminiscent of the Nazi era under Hitler. She said that freedom of speech is not a license for violence.

“Freedom of speech does not include violence, intimidation, blocking students’ access to their classes, or taking over campus buildings. This is straight-up discrimination and hate straight out of the Nazi Germany playbook. The students participating in this violence should be expelled and charged with crimes accordingly. The non-student protesters should not be allowed on campus. When we follow the money, we will find who is funding this, and they do not have America’s best interest at heart,” Wambsganss told DX.

UCLA announced Wednesday that classes have been canceled due to the violence from the ongoing protests.


Elected officials, including Ted Cruz, have condemned the protests.

“Any radical who threatens the safety of another student should be arrested, they should be prosecuted, they should be expelled, and if they’re from another country, they should be deported,” Cruz said at a recent campaign event, The Dallas Express reported.

Wambsganss encourages Americans to stand with the Jewish community.

“All America-loving patriots should be standing with our Jewish brothers and sisters at this time. Patriot Mobile has joined this banner project to let our Jewish brothers and sisters on campuses across America know that we love them and are praying for them,” Wambsganss told DX.
