Who is Hamas?
At CUFI, we are focused on several key issues with the goal of defending Israel’s strength, security, and sovereignty.
On the heels of Sunday’s deadly shooting attack in Jerusalem, Israel’s public security minister reiterated his criticism of social media, saying sites such as Facebook are acting as a platform for online incitement.
Visiting the site of the attack where two people were killed and six others injured, Gilad Erdan said that one of the main animating...
The media is awash in articles declaring that the U.S.-Israel relationship has hit a new low. And yes, when you have an unnamed Administration official calling the Prime Minister of Israel a "chickensh**t," things have definitely gotten bad.
But what troubles us more than the childish name calling is the persistent policy. In recent months, we...
Yesterday, President Obama announced with great pride that he has reached an agreement with Iran on the framework for a nuclear deal. The details of this framework agreement are still unclear. In fact, Iran has already challenged the Administration’s vague characterization of these parameters. But we already know enough to know that nothing about...
We were disappointed to see initial reports that Pope Francis called Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas an "angel of peace." We were relieved to see reports that the Pope was likely misunderstood. It seems that what he said to Abbas was that he "could be" an angel of peace.
And indeed, President Abbas could be an angel of peace. In...
Yesterday, June 30th, was the deadline by which America and the other P5+1 nations were supposed to reach a deal with Iran to stop its nuclear weapons program. This was not the first such deadline. Yet once again, the deadline came and went without a deal.
Meanwhile, we continue to receive troubling reports from Geneva that the negotiations have...
We in CUFI were opposed to President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran. And we opposed it with everything we had. We recognized that Iran is an aggressive power with no interest in peace. We knew that this deal would not appease Iran but merely embolden it. And, once the deal was signed, we prayed that we would be proven wrong.
Sadly, we have not...
CUFI has always stressed that Israel's fight is our fight and that Israel's enemies are our enemies. Simply put, those who hate Israel also hate the U.S., and those who hate Jews also hate Christians.
Yesterday, we received yet another terrible, tragic confirmation of this fact.
On Easter Sunday, a suicide bomber detonated explosives at a public...
In June, the Tel Aviv days are hot and steamy. But things cool off nicely at night, and families and friends can go out and enjoy their city and their lives. But this past Wednesday night, two men sitting at a Tel Aviv restaurant had other plans. After ordering desert, they rose, pulled out guns, and began firing at their fellow diners. Four...
We at CUFI are shocked and heartbroken today to learn that 13 year old Hallel Yaffa Ariel was stabbed to death by a Palestinian terrorist who broke into her bedroom in Kiryat Arba. The loss of her young b eautiful life, so full of promise and innocence, is deeply mourned by everyone in Israel and the CUFI community. We offer her family our prayers...
