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.

CUFI Action Fund Reacts to SASC Vote on Kahl

(03/24/2021) WASHINGTON – On Wednesday, the Christians United for Israel (CUFI) Action Fund, released the following statement concerning today’s vote on the nomination of Colin Kahl to serve as Undersecretary of Defense for Policy in the Senate Committee on Armed Services:

”The CUFI Action Fund is disappointed in Senator Manchin’s decision to support Dr. Kahl’s nomination, especially in the face of widespread opposition in West Virginia.

“None have questioned the accuracy of the claims we have made concerning Dr. Kahl’s record. He remains a serial Iran appeaser and his record of antagonism towards Israel is shameful.

“As the tied committee vote shows, Dr. Kahl is an overtly partisan pick. His advancement harms the longstanding bipartisan consensus on a range of national security issues.

“The battle over Dr. Kahl’s nomination has been and remains a competition between the power of elites and the will of the people. As this partisan nomination moves forward, we urge the Senate to reject Colin Kahl and call upon the White House to put forth a nominee who can garner wide bipartisan support.”

CUFI Action Fund Launches Six-Figure Ad-Buy in West Virginia Opposing Kahl Nomination

(03/19/2021) WASHINGTON – On Friday, the Christians United for Israel (CUFI) Action Fund launched a six-figure digital and television ad buy in West Virginia highlighting Colin Kahl’s history of pro-Iran and anti-Israel positions and asking the state’s residents to contact Sen. Joe Manchin and express opposition to Kahl’s nomination to serve as Undersecretary of Defense for Policy.

“As the ad notes, Colin Kahl is unfit to serve. His positions on issues of import to pro-Israel voters are far outside the mainstream. In the past, Sen. Manchin has shown courage and independence in his foreign policy approach. On a number of occasions, he has personally sat down to hear the views of his pro-Israel constituents. In that spirit, we hope that Sen. Manchin elects to oppose Dr. Kahl,” said CUFI Action Fund Chairwoman Sandra Parker.

CUFI Welcomes Utah Legislature Passage of Anti-BDS Legislation

(03/08/2021) WASHINGTON – On Monday, the local and national leadership of Christians United for Israel (CUFI), the nation’s largest pro-Israel organization, welcomed the Utah State Legislature’s Friday passage of S.B. 186, the Utah Anti-Boycott Israel Amendments legislation. This legislation prohibits state entities from contracting with companies that boycott Israel.

“I believe the passage of S.B. 186 is essential to demonstrate Utah’s continued support of Israel’s rights as a nation to engage in free trade without the unwarranted attempts to do damage to its economy. Israel is the U.S.’s best friend in the region and we should stand with her as opportunities allow,” said CUFI Utah State Director, Pastor Craig McCune, the Senior Pastor at New Creation Church in Sandy.

“CUFI’s more than 65,000 members across the state of Utah and 10 million members around the country warmly welcome the overwhelming support this bill received in the Utah State Legislature. We must ensure the anti-Semitic movement to boycott the world’s only Jewish state receives no quarter in any state in the Union and Utah is doing its part,” said CUFI founder and Chairman Pastor John Hagee. 

“This legislation enjoyed widespread bipartisan support at a time when such is rarely the case in state capitals across the country. We are deeply grateful to Senator Jerry Stevenson and Representative Francis Gibson for their strong leadership on this legislation and we look forward to Governor Spencer Cox signing this bill into law without delay,” said CUFI Action Fund Chairwoman Sandra Parker.

CUFI Condemns ICC Decision

(03/03/2021) WASHINGTON – On Wednesday, the leadership of Christians United for Israel (CUFI), the nation’s largest pro-Israel organization, condemned the decision by the International Criminal Court (ICC) to investigate Israeli and Palestinian actions since June 13, 2014.

“The only thing more predictable than today’s ICC announcement is the outcome of that investigation. The ICC has already shown its hand. It conferred jurisdiction upon itself and is limiting its investigation to events that took place one day after three Israeli boys were kidnapped and murdered by Hamas terrorists. Like the Goldstone report and so many international examinations of events in the region, the ICC will undoubtedly seek to find fault with every Israeli act of defense and seek to forgive every Palestinian act of aggression,” said CUFI founder and Chairman Pastor John Hagee.

“International institutions have done themselves and the world a grave disservice by undermining their own legitimacy with anti-Israel witch hunts. The ICC will now join that abysmal tradition. Thankfully, the consequences of the ICC’s action will be limited. Despite decades of institutionalized international anti-Semitism, the Jewish state has continued to survive and thrive. Tomorrow will be no different,” Hagee added.

“The only consequence of the ICC’s probe should be the maintenance and possible expansion of sanctions against those individuals associated with this charade. International institutions made up of individuals that make sport of attacking the Jewish state must be held accountable by Israel’s allies. We commend the Biden administration for maintaining current ICC related designations and urge the White House to continue exercising sound judgement with respect to the same,” said CUFI Action Fund Chairwoman Sandra Parker.
