Organization:


The self-proclaimed “largest pro-Israel” organization in the country has a major summit next week, meeting with lawmakers and many of your elected representatives in Washington, DC. At the summit, this organization will promote continuing Israeli colonization of Palestinian land and legislation repressing our right to boycott for justice for the Palestinian people. This isn’t AIPAC, though. It’s CUFI: Christians United for Israel.

CUFI and its 6 million members advance Christian Zionism in US policy, and even claim to have led the charge for the Trump administration to declare recognition of occupied Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The political ideology CUFI pushes proudly advances decades of US support for the Israeli government’s abuse of Palestinian rights.

As the Palestinian people call for freedom, justice, and equality, CUFI actively works to undermine their freedom struggle and our solidarity movement. CUFI’s hateful agenda has flown under the radar for too long, and it’s time to take a stand.

Next week, CUFI is holding its annual conference in your backyard, Amal. As a supporter of justice, join us in confronting CUFI’s racism and instead supporting the liberation of all people from July 7-8 in Washington, DC.

  1. If you can’t join in person, endorse the call to action defying CUFI’s racism and oppressive agenda from FOSNA, JVP, AMP, and USCPR.
  2. Join us for events on Sunday, July 7 and Monday, July 8 where we will learn and take action to #CounterCUFI:

    Countering Christian Zionism: Interfaith Visions of Liberation Panel (RSVP for the panel)
    Sunday, July 7 from 7-9 PM
    Plymouth Congregational United Church of Christ
    (5301 North Capitol St NE, Washington, DC)

    Rise Against Racism: Counter CUFI! Action (RSVP for the protest)
    Monday, July 8 at 9 AM
    Walter E. Washington Convention Center
    (801 Mt Vernon Pl NW, Washington, DC)

When we #CounterCUFI, we’re rejecting a right-wing agenda—grounded in white supremacy—that advances Zionism, racism, and antisemitism. CUFI’s agenda is an affront to every one of our values: CUFI insists that people must be separate and unequal, cynically supports Zionism out of a hatred and exploitation of Jews because they believe Israel will hasten a prophecy of Christian salvation, and denies Palestinians’ humanity. Hateful ideologies feed each other, so it’s no surprise that CUFI’s founder, John Hagee, has a long history of spewing Islamophobic, antisemitic, anti-LGBTQIA, and racist ideology.

Join us this weekend and next Monday and as we advance a progressive vision for US policy that uplifts freedom, justice, and equality for the Palestinian people in a world without racism. We need you with us.
