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: How Voters Seek to Approach Israel, Iran and the Palestinian Authority

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: Iran’s Continued Malevolence

Pardon us if this week’s Action Update feels like you’ve heard what we’re saying before. We assure our faithful readers that we’re not recycling old material. Sadly however, it appears the Biden administration is doing just that when it comes to American policy towards Iran.

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.

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.

The Action Update: The Biden administration’s approach to foreign policy.

In this week’s Update, we focus on a core issue with the Biden administration’s approach to foreign policy: their failure to back up words with actions. This failure stretches into a number of arenas with which Israel’s supporters are concerned, but this week we’ll focus on Team Biden’s interactions with the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the Palestinian Authority (PA).
