Christians United For Israel: CUFI Accomplishments

For Six years CUFI has met in Washington DC  and related their reasons why it's necessary to support Israel.  This year, their 6th, was made up of over 5,000 CUFI members who heard prominent national and international speakers  for Israel. 

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was included who came to them on a live satellite.  The Summit's Night to Honor Israel featured Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren, Pastor John Hagee and Glenn Beck.  Glenn said, "Each of us will be judged as a people and a nation by how we treat Israel." 

Members took part in two days of education on the history of Israel and advocacy-training.  Members also went to Capitol Hill and had many meetings with representatives from both Republicans and Democrats and asked them to :

1.  Oppose the unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state at the UN.  This is something Obama has said he would veto, but no one can rely on this completely. 
2. Support security aid to Israel
3. Have tougher sanctions against Iran. 

With CUFI's backing, these goals look like they have been accepted.  They are proving that education about conditions is necessary.  That's what CUFI had been doing; educating our USA House and Senate about Israel as well as its members.
