Recent events have propelled Christians United for Israel (CUFI) to the front row of pro-Israel organizations.
The group advertised last weeks Washington D.C. Summit, held July 21, as a more compact two-day program. Last years conclave offered a three-day affair. But if anyone thought the faith-based pro-Israel organization was becoming less relevant, they would think otherwise after attending the latest confab.
At the very moment when the Jewish State was under a crushing vise of global criticism for its involvement in Operation Protective Edge, CUFI (pronounced koo-PHI and not koo-FEE) roused its American heartland membership in loud, rollicking support of Israel. It did so in the pivotal capitol of Washington D.C. at a pivotal time.
Led by firebrand evangelist Pastor John Hagee, some 4,800 foot stomping, shofar-blowing Christian delegates traveled from across the nation and some from overseas to attend the non-stop cavalcade of podium grandiloquence, towering video effects, mesmerizing Israeli music, and special informational sessions. Part tent revival and part political salvo, CUFIs Washington Summit is patterned after the mega-gatherings staged by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee in the same hall. CUFI speakers brought clarity and context to its attendees in the midst of the latest fog of the latest Arab-Israeli war.
Indeed, at the very hour CUFIs convention gaveled open, the Jewish State was fiercely fighting moment-to-moment terrorist threats scampering over the Gaza border fence, paddling in from the sea, streaking in from the sky, and tunneling beneath the ground. Moreover, Jerusalem was contending with a well-financed highly-politicized adverse humanitarian political machine supported by American tax-deductible 501(c)(3) donations. So every round of CUFI applause and utterance of support was considered a precious gesture to beleaguered Israelis who right now need a friend.

These aren’t the same people who had Susan Rice, the Obama hack, speak to them, right?
Rush had a sound bite from Susan Rice yesterday at some Jewish, pro-Israel group (why Jews haven’t realized Obama and his clan hate them, I don’t know)...and they applauded Susan Rice’s accolades of the haughty John Kerry who served in Vietnam.
Susan Rice was at a DIFFERENT rally for Israel.
Early this week, hundreds of top Jewish organizational and community leaders from across the country converged on Washington, DC at the National Press Club in a show of solidarity with the people and the State of Israel.
High ranking speakers included National Security Advisor Susan Rice, House Speaker John Boehner, Israeli ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer, Congressional leaders Rep. Kevin McCarthy and Steny Hoyer; Reps Ed Royce, and Eliot Engel, as well as Senator Ben Cardin.
God Bless Israel!
Why could this crowd not have turned their energy toward helping Christians in Iraq, who are totally unprotected, and whose plight is much more immediate than that of the citizens of Israel?
It isn’t a zero sum game. What makes you think people are not able to promote more than one thing at once? Try it, you might find you can focus on more than one problem at once.
