Christians United for Israel Crosses Million Member Mark
Brog: “We’ve only just begun.”
JERUSALEM – Christians United for Israel (CUFI), the nation’s largest pro-Israel organization, announced Sunday that it had crossed the million member mark. The announcement was made by CUFI founder and Chairman Pastor John Hagee at event in Jerusalem featuring Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
“Six years ago Prime Minister Netanyahu asked me if we could unite Christians in support of Israel. I told him I didn’t know. Having reached one million members, I think the answer is clear. America’s Christians are uniting in support of Israel,” Hagee said after the event.
During his remarks, Netanyahu thanked the group for their support and congratulated CUFI on enlisting one million members.
“We are witnessing a dramatic transformation in the relationship between Christians and Jews, who are focusing now on the common values and the common future we both share,” Netanyahu said.
After delivering remarks, CUFI executive director David Brog noted “With Iran steadily progressing towards a nuclear weapon, and Palestinian terrorists once again reminding the world that they are more concerned with destroying Israel than making peace, I believe that the news of our having crossed the million member threshold could not have come at a more critical juncture.”
“Our first million members is a solid start, but we’ve only just begun,” Brog added.
Christians United for Israel is the largest pro-Israel organization in the United States and one of the leading Christian grassroots movements in the world. CUFI spans all fifty states and reaches millions with its message. Each year CUFI holds hundreds of pro-Israel events in cities around the country. And each July, thousands of pro-Israel Christians gather in Washington, D.C. to participate in the CUFI Washington Summit and make their voices heard in support of Israel and the Jewish people. CUFI’s mission is to provide a national association through which every pro-Israel church, parachurch organization, ministry or individual in America can speak and act with one voice in support of Israel.
