The largest pro-Israel organization in the country will hold it’s annual summit in Washington D.C this week. Christians United For Israel (CUFI) promotes continuing Israeli colonization of Palestinian land and legislation repressing our right to boycott for justice for the Palestinian people. This year conference attendees will hear from Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who will be there to stoke a war with Iran.
CUFI and its 6 million members advance Christian Zionism and white supremacy in U.S. policy and take credit for the Trump administration’s decision to declare Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. CUFI actively works to undermine the Palestinian freedom struggle and our solidarity movement. That’s CODEPINK is joining our partners Rise Against Racism and Counter CUFI.
We must reject CUFI’s right-wing agenda that advances Zionism, racism, and antisemitism. CUFI cynically supports Zionism out of a hatred and exploitation of Jews because they believe the state of Israel will hasten a prophecy of the return of Chris, and denies Palestinians their humanity. CUFI’s founder, John Hagee has a long history of spewing Islamophobic, antisemitic, anti-LGBTQIA, and racist ideology.
Join us #CounterCUFI’s right-wing agenda and demand U.S. policy that uplifts freedom, justice, and equality for the Palestinian people and a world without racism.
