Student Union opens ‘hasbara’ room in effort to fill public diplomacy vacuum.
In mid-July CUFI will go to Washington with more than 4,000 advocates to speak with members of Congress about the imperative of supporting Israel. Their presence will confirm what the CUFI website fairly shouts:
When the Jews of Europe were marched to the gas chambers in Hitler’s Holocaust … the Christians of the world were strangely quiet. Never again! Not on our watch! The sleeping giant in America has awakened!
WE ARE UNITED FOR ISRAEL! WE ARE SPEAKING OUT FOR ISRAEL!
Brog explained: “AIPAC has never succeeded in really going beyond the Jewish community. It’s crucial that the millions of Christians – we’re talking of at least 50 million evangelicals – speak out … so that it will be understood that Israel is an American issue, a Christian issue, as well as a Jewish issue.”
“We are here to introduce a new era in America,” said Rev. Hagee. “An era of unity, mutual respect, and lasting peace – an era when Christian and Jew stand together hand in hand, shoulder to shoulder, and announce to a hostile world that we are united in brotherhood. Love is something you do, not just something you say.”
Rabbi Lapin put it in bottom-line terms: “I would urge all American Jews to look deep into their hearts and recognize friends where they appear.”
