"Why Israel, From Why Should I Care to What Can I Do?" was the multi-part question asked and answered this week, as more than 5,000 members of Christians United for Israel (CUFI) braved biblically bad rain to gather in Washington, D.C., and stand with Israel.
Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, National Security Advisor John Bolton, U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt, and Special Assistant to the President for Legislative Affairs Paul Teller all visited. They were greeted by countless standing ovations and periodic, enthusiastic chants of "USA!" and "Four more years!"
At the summit, significant time was devoted to exciting new archaeological discoveries like the pilgrimage road and biblical kings' seals, as well as security threats posed by Hamas and Hezbollah's terror tunnels and Iran's nuclear ambitions. But a non-trivial amount of time was also devoted to domestic anti-Semitism and the urgency of opposing it, whether it's found on campus or in Congress.
