Vice President of the United States
God has promised to bless the individual or nation that blesses the Chosen People. History has proven beyond reasonable doubt that the nations that have blessed the Jewish people have had the blessing of God; the nations that have cursed the Jewish people have experienced the curse of God.
CUFI members across the country have experienced blessings in their own lives by blessing Israel. CUFI wants to provide you with the opportunity to share your testimony about how you have been blessed by blessing Israel. We believe your testimony will inspire and empower other CUFI members to bless Israel.
When I first visited the Holy Land, decades ago, I experienced a transcendent connection walking in places I had heard about in church and read about in the Bible all my life.
Israel lives, and our two countries have never been closer. I’m so proud that Israel is a part of my story and America’s story.
CUFI’s movement is a great movement; it is based upon the truth.
CUFI has truly been a friend at all times – and its millions of devoted pro- Israel Christians, our brothers and sisters, for any adversity. Israel is so fortunate to have you as our strategic allies in the battle that we wage to protect the values of democracy and the freedom that we both hold so dear.
At this time of monumentous challenges and opportunities, Christians United for Israel’s role as our brother and sister is so essential. Our common thread, our shared Judeo-Christian heritage, a mutual moral obligation, urges us to go to any length for what we know is right.
Israel is our friend—our closest allies in the Middle East and a democratic beacon of hope in a region of the world that has so little actual freedom.
Today, thanks to the leadership of CUFI, America’s alliance with Israel is stronger than ever.
We must combat anti-Semitism and all forms of racism wherever they appear, whether they come from the extreme right or the extreme left.
Whenever Israel stands up to threats and for the truth, we know we can count on Christians United for Israel.
In this cause, the great cause of crafting a future worthy of America and worthy of our children, I know we could have no better partner than CUFI. Through your great work, your unwavering display of faith, devotion and brotherly love, you remind our country every day about the values that define us, the mission that drives us, and the future that awaits us.
With more than eight million members who all stand shoulder to shoulder with Israel and the Jewish people, CUFI is definitively a force to be reckoned with.
We seek an America where our Jewish brethren feel safe in their synagogues and temples, feel no fear as they walk down the street wearing a yarmulke or a star of David. We seek to make our country better, and this demands that bigotry and anti-Semitism receive no quarter whatsoever.
Tonight, with a fighting force of over eight million strong, we stand together, Christians and Jews, shoulder to shoulder, united with one purpose--to crush and destroy anti-Semitism.
The Christian friends of Israel, you are always there for us. We have no better friends on earth than you. Thank you.
In Jerusalem, our President said that the bond between America and Israel in his words “is woven together in the hearts of our people” — and Christians United for Israel proves this statement true every single day all across this country.
For decades, America has been the backbone of Israel’s support in the world. Well, the backbone of that backbone is the support of millions of devout Christians across this great country. More than any other Christian organization, CUFI works year after year to make that backbone stronger and straighter than ever.
I fell in love with CUFI last January in San Antonio. You simply conquered my heart.
I do not know of an organization in the world more important to Israel than CUFI
The reason I am such an avid supporter of Israel is that I happen to believe one of the very best things we can do for the United States of America is be the best friend Israel has.
I am thrilled to be with you this morning. I want to thank you, first, for your wonderful passion and your advocacy and dedication to Israel. Christians United for Israel, you are great friends to all of us, so thank you.
