I was honored to be in the company of Israel’s Christian “friends” Sunday evening for the CUFI (Christians United for Israel) Celebrate Israel Week biennial event at the Living Word Christian Center in Brooklyn Park, MN. This celebration began Sunday evening and will conclude Wed. May 9th. The Celebrate Israel Week event is a breathtaking experience to behold. It sets aside Jewish-Christian religious differences and an unfortunate history, in uniting the two as brothers with a common purpose and for the common good.- with the current directive being - the defense of Israel and the Jewish people against the venomous, delegitimizing and demonizing politico-media-war and terrorist war being waged against them. As for Israel’s enemies, there is no valid nor rational reason for their vicious Nazi-style campaign, which offers no compromise nor real peaceful resolution short of the elimination of the State of Israel.
CUFI has become the largest pro-Israel organization in the country, spanning all fifty states. Each July, many thousands of pro-Israel Christians gather in Washington D.C. to voice strong support for the State of Israel. Further, CUFI organizes a bi-annual summit in Jerusalem, bringing thousands of Christians from all corners of the globe to demonstrate solidarity with Israel.
CUFI goals include educating Christians about the “Biblical and moral imperatives” to supporting Israel; and to communicate this perspective to the media, politicians and the general public. Their education efforts now include Campus chapters to counter the viral growth of anti-Israel bullying on University campuses nationwide, and to stem the tide of Nazi-like-anti-Israel misinformation, brainwashing student and faculty alike, that is inundating the campus setting- including our own University of Minnesota.
