At CUFI Gathering, Christians and Jews Alike Vow To Fight Boycott Jews (BDS) ‘Economic Antisemitism’

Jewish Americans who care about their future need to align with Christians United with Israel (CUFI). Most of the Jewish organizations in the United States are incompetent. The few that are half-decent do not have the resources or the voting power to accomplish anything impactful. At over 10 million members strong, CUFI has the voting power to lobby (here, here, here) for meaningful pro-Jewish and pro-Israel legislation. Gd bless Pastor Hagee and CUFI.

At CUFI gathering, Christians and Jews alike vow to fight BDS ‘economic anti-Semitism’

“Anti-Semitism is not just a Jewish problem. Anti-Semitism is everyone’s problem. Our Jewish neighbors cannot be left to fend off this scourge by themselves. If we do nothing, evil will thrive, and it will rule the day,” said Pastor John Hagee.

By JNS, July 26, 2021

If day one of the Christians United for Israel 2021 summit was about honoring Israel, the next day’s focus at the organization’s annual conference held this year in Dallas was a call to action.

The more than 700 invited CUFI leaders and donors at the two-day conference on July 18-19 arrived early in the morning for the start of the marathon conference day that covered every topic from Iran, BDS and anti-Semitism among others.

Rather than the pep rally for Israel last Sunday, Monday offered attendees the nuts and bolts of the U.S.-Israel relationship, which they enthusiastically received, and set the course for the following year of activism.

Like the previous day, the proceedings began with another speech by CUFI founder Pastor John Hagee, who came onto the stage holding a bulging folder.

Hagee said that over the last year in the United States, he had seen things he never thought he would see in America. Not just the global pandemic that brought the world to its knees, he said, but the “rabid, virulent, anti-Semitism that has engulfed American society” and called for the mostly evangelical Christian audience to join Jews in combating it.

“Anti-Semitism is not just a Jewish problem. Anti-Semitism is everyone’s problem. Our Jewish neighbors cannot be left to fend off this scourge by themselves. If we do nothing, evil will thrive, and it will rule the day,” said Hagee.

Hagee called the members the “watchmen on the wall” who are never going to be silent. CUFI he said, was a one-issue organization, which is and will always remain, Israel and the protection of the Jewish people, who have the right to defend themselves, secure their borders, and enjoy the right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

The speech was a call to action to the organization’s 10 million members to not remain on the sidelines and act on behalf of Israel.

“I’m sure the super-cautious are going to say, ‘Let’s dialogue,’ ” he said. “We’ve been dialoguing for 40 years. The gloves are off, we’re coming after you now!”

‘History teaches us that we are one’

While the first day the attendees heard from prominent Christian politicians, the second day featured mostly Jewish speakers, communal leaders, organizational leaders and pundits such as keynote speaker, conservative radio talk-show host Dennis Prager.

Malcolm Hoenlein, vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, who spoke after Hagee, aptly explained the importance of groups like CUFI for the mainstream Jewish community, having been at every national summit since its inception in 2006 and speaking at almost all of them.

He called it the singular gathering of the year among the myriad of pro-Israel conferences held nationally.

“For me, it’s a chance to recharge my batteries. I come to you for inspiration—the energy, the love that we feel here every year,” he said. “And bring that message back to the American Jewish community, in every forum I can, my weekly radio shows, everywhere.”

Hoenlein told the audience that one of the most disturbing trends he has been seeing in the world today is the undermining of traditional values and the campaign to revise and distort history, which to Judaism, he said, was sacred.

Long before Winston Churchill warned to study history or repeat it, Jewish sages, he said, were saying the same thing thousands of years ago.

“For Judaism, history is sacred. Why would we mark it for 2,443 years? We look back in order to look forward. We look back to learn the lessons. We look back to spare future generations these trials and tribulations. We learn from the success and the failures of the past,” he said. “You can’t rectify the challenges of today or the mistakes of the past by rewriting history, by denying truth.”

The story of anti-Semitism he said, was the same in every generation and today is no different. That is why the Passover Haggadah, he pointed out, uses the present tense that “enemies arise that seek to destroy us.”

“It reminds us that while the colors of the uniforms may change, or the language may be different, the enemy is the same,” he said. “Those who hate God hate the Jews. Those who want to eradicate our common tradition hate the Jews. And that’s why in every generation they come up.”

Hoenlein said that the Exodus in the Bible happened after the Jews were ready to be redeemed.

“Because first, you have to be psychologically free before you can be physically free,” he said. “We have to break those yokes that hold us back from doing exactly what Pastor Hagee said. The time is now. It’s a time to move from words to action.”
