Israel Is an Apartheid State—Isn’t It?

Date released: 02/24/2022

A few weeks ago, Amnesty International labeled Israel as an “apartheid state.” Accusing Israel of apartheid, the racist system which governed South Africa from 1948 until the early 1990s, is a decades-old libel that has no basis in reality. In Israel, Arabs and Jews (indeed, all minorities) have full and equal rights.

Listen to this episode of the CUFI Minute with Kasim Hafeez to learn how to defend Israel against this false accusation.

Date released: 02/17/2022

In this episode, Kasim compares Theodor Herzl’s pamphlet, The Jewish State, with a religious edict issued by the Supreme Leader of Iran on the same day, many years later. The two documents demonstrate that both the Jewish and Iranian people have suffered from oppression, but while Israel was founded as a pluralistic, democratic society to protect all its citizens, Iran has become a tyrannical and oppressive regime, which abuses its own people, as well as poses a threat to America, Israel, and all the free world.

Free Palestine—from Hamas and the PA

Date released: 02/03/2022

Anti-Israel detractors often disguise their hatred of the Jewish state with the pro-Palestinian slogan, “Free Palestine.” But innocent Palestinians do need to be freed—from Hamas, the terrorist group which has been the de-facto ruler of the Gaza strip since 2007, and the Palestinian Authority.


A Holocaust Survivor Tells His Story

Date released: 01/27/2022

In honor of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, this special episode of the CUFI Minute highlights the life and message of the late Irving Roth, an Auschwitz survivor and great friend of CUFI.

On this important day, please take the opportunity to remember, as Irving taught us, that the persecution of Jews always begins with words. Words become slogans, slogans transform society, and soon enough, murder is legitimized.

In the face of evil, we must not be silent. We must speak out for Israel and the Jewish people whenever and wherever antisemitism rears its ugly head.
