The Action Update: CUFI Solidarity Mission to Israel with Ambassador Haley

Over the past week, members of CUFI leadership and the CUFI Action Fund traveled from Abu Dhabi to Jerusalem and back home to the USA. Along the way, we spoke at length with an Arab royal, hugged a grandmother as she wept in the ruins of her home destroyed by a Hamas rocket, shared numerous wonderful and heartbreaking moments with former US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, and walked in the footsteps of the Jesus.

The Action Update: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly Following Gaza-Israel Conflict

This week’s Action Update looks back at some of the obscene rhetoric we saw during the recent conflagration between Hamas and Israel, and assesses the consequences of that commentary in the context of the massive increase in antisemitism we’ve seen in recent days here in the US. But before we get into all of that, let’s start with a bit of positive analysis.

The Action Update: Israel Will Prevail Against Hamas

We’ve no doubt that even casual observers of the Middle East are aware that Israel is currently battling, yet again, against the Palestinian terrorist forces Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad. As the terrorists hide behind innocent Palestinians, they have unleashed a hailstorm of rockets at Israeli civilians. Hamas and its ilk are war criminals, they are evil and they are cowards. In today’s Action Update, we’ll discuss how we got here, why we got here, and what we can expect in the coming days.

The Action Update: Jerusalem Under Attack

This week’s Update focuses on events in Jerusalem. It often seems like the violence in the region ebbs and flows. Sadly, this isn’t because there is a day in which Palestinian leaders have randomly chosen to abandon their use of terrorism or tried to find a peaceful resolution to the conflict. Rather, the Palestinian leadership, in both Gaza and Ramallah, chooses to inflame tensions and create conflict whenever they feel it will benefit their popularity amongst the Palestinian population locally and Palestinian sympathizers internationally.

The Action Update: The Failures of the Palestinian Leaders

Golda Meir, who served as Israel’s Prime Minister from 1969–1974, once made a rather controversial statement, “Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us.” The average Palestinian or Arab parent loves their children the same as we do. But in today’s Action Update, you’ll see how a variation of that quote makes sense: Peace will come when the Palestinian leaders love their people more than they love themselves.

State Leaders Stand With CUFI In Passing Critical Legislation

(04/28/2021) SAN ANTONIO – On Wednesday, the leadership of Christians United for Israel (CUFI), the nation’s largest pro-Israel organization, issued a statement welcoming the news that this week the governors of Idaho and West Virginia signed CUFI-backed anti-BDS legislation in their states into law and the Alabama State Senate concurred with the state’s House of Representatives by passing a resolution, “Endorsing and Encouraging Holocaust Education in the State of Alabama.”

“All three states, Utah, Idaho and West Virginia, where CUFI sought to advance legislation this year ensuring that taxpayer dollars do not end up in the hands of those who boycott Israel, have now seen those measures become law. And in Alabama, after close communications with a host of allied organizations and the Department of Education, we are now seeing that state endorse quality Holocaust education. Whether it comes in the form of Israel-boycotters or old-fashioned bigots, CUFI is resolutely committed to combating antisemitism at every turn,” said CUFI founder and Chairman Pastor John Hagee. 

CUFI regularly works with local rabbis and other Jewish communal leaders to advance such measures. This was especially true in Alabama where CUFI was joined in the effort to advance the Holocaust education resolution by a host of local leaders and organizations, including the Alabama Holocaust Commission, the Alabama-Israel Task Force, the Jewish Community Relations Council of the Birmingham Jewish Federation, the Jewish Federation of Central Alabama and the Mobile Area Jewish Federation.

“Action in state capitals does not happen without the efforts of invaluable partners at the local and national levels. As we push back against the BDS movement and seek to ensure the next generation is educated about the horrors of the Holocaust and the dangers of antisemitism, we do so arm-in-arm with organizations like the Jewish Federations of North America and the American Jewish Committee,” said CUFI Action Fund Chairwoman Sandra Parker.

The Action Update: Taxpayer money sent and Idaho anti-BDS bill

We start this week with the unwelcome but not-so-surprising news that hundreds of millions of dollars of taxpayer money is being sent to one of the of the UN’s worst programs. We also thought it worth mentioning that there is a real fear that the Biden administration is sadly slipping back into its old habits when it comes to Iran. Finally, we wrap things up by bringing you news of yet another state legislative victory.
