 Christians United for Israel activists lavished President Obama with rare praise for pledging to veto any Palestinian attempt to secure statehood recognition at the United Nations.

"We appreciate that you and members of your administration have indicated that the U.S. will veto such a resolution in the Security Council and vote against such a resolution in the General Assembly," said the form email, sent by 33,000 CUFI activists to the White House since Thursday. "We're writing to urge you to follow through on these important commitments."

Christian Zionists: not a lobby like AIPAC

 A reader commented on my story this week about AIPAC – the pro-Israel lobby giant that, according to everything I hear, has not been weakened by the attacks by Walt-Mearsheimer acolytes or the rapid growth of J Street.  (AIPAC's annual policy conference begins on Sunday.)

Editorial

When Christians United for Israel (CUFI), which held its annual “Washington summit” this week, was created in 2006, the reaction across the Jewish spectrum was predictable.  

Jewish positions generally unchanged as CUFI, John Hagee begin Washington summit

Vacation plans mean I'm missing this year's Christians United for Israel (CUFI) Washington summit, which begins today.
