More than 3,500 people attended a rally to support Israel in Miami Beach on July 20 in an effort to Stand United for Israel. Organized by Christians United For Israel (CUFI) at Florida International University, the event was held in order “to raise awareness of the current conflict and to send support and unconditional love to our brethren in Israel and the Israel Defense Forces.” The CUFI announcement stated, “We want to expose the truth– Hamas is the enemy, not Israel. The State of Israel is a peace loving nation and, like all other nations, has the right– and responsibility– to protect and defend its citizens. As Israel leads the way in the fight against terrorism, let us stand together on the right side of history.” CUFI held its national summit in Washington, DC that weekend. With nearly 1.75 million members, CUFI calls itself the largest pro-Israel organization in the United States. Learn more about UCFI at FIU at facebook.com/fiucufi.
