CUFI Fights The Anti-Israel BDS Movement On Campus

The anti-Israel [and I also think anti-Jew] BDS [Boycott, Divest and Sanction Israel] movement is disturbing enough wherever you notice it around the world; but it is really disturbing when you see it here in our country and on our college/university campuses in America.  

That is why I am so thankful for the great CUFI [Christians United For Israel] organization of Pastor John Hagee, a totally pro-Israel group that is fighting the disgusting BDS movement tooth and nail on the college campuses. 

God Bless The Christians United For Israel

I received the following newsletter in my e-mail from CUFI on Campus on Tuesday April 21, 2015:

"There is a dark effort underway to boycott, divest from, and sanction the Jewish state of Israel (BDS). The heart of this effort is found on America’s college campuses. The leaders of this movement have no interest in seeing the Jewish state live in peace with her neighbors. They have but one goal: Destroy the Jewish state through international isolation.

The tactics associated with BDS are nothing short of appalling. They demonize the Jewish state. They lie about the actions of the Israeli government. And they bully and intimidate pro-Israel students.

Since the BDS movement first reared its ugly head about ten years ago it has gained momentum on college campuses across the country. In the last few years, this obscene effort to single out Israel for economic punishment has won a string of victories in California. Just last month, Northwestern and Stanford Universities both voted in favor of divesting from Israel.

But there is a ray of hope...
Where CUFI On Campus has a strong presence we have been able to counter this BDS activity. We have provided our CUFI on Campus student leaders with training on how to defeat BDS. They are fighting back. And they are winning!"

Then the newsletter went on to say how for the third straight year, CUFI on Campus helped to defeat the BDS movement at UC Davis. Also, Liberty University on February 25 of this year passed the nation's first anti-BDS legislation.  

God Bless Pastor John Hagee and his CUFI for being an unwavering and unconditional supporter of Israel.

We maintain that there is no excuse for acts of terrorism against Israel and that Israel has the same right as every other nation to defend her citizens from such violent attacks.

We pledge to stand with our brothers and sisters in Israel and to speak out on their behalf whenever and wherever necessary until the attacks stop and they are finally living in peace and security with their neighbors."
