Eretz Israel is our unforgettable historic homeland...The Jews who will it shall achieve their State...And whatever we attempt there for our own benefit will redound mightily and beneficially to the good of all mankind. (Theodor Herzl, DerJudenstaat, 1896)

We offer peace and amity to all the neighbouring states and their peoples, and invite them to cooperate with the independent Jewish nation for the common good of all. The State of Israel is ready to contribute its full share to the peaceful progress and development of the Middle East.
(From Proclamation of the State of Israel, 5 Iyar 5708; 14 May 1948)

With a liberal democratic political system operating under the rule of law, a flourishing market economy producing technological innovation to the benefit of the wider world, and a population as educated and cultured as anywhere in Europe or North America, Israel is a normal Western country with a right to be treated as such in the community of nations.... For the global jihad, Israel may be the first objective. But it will not be the last. (Friends of Israel Initiative)

Christians United for Jew-Hatred

Christians United for Israel (CUFI) is a splendid, laudable organisation that, according to the Jerusalem Post (quoted on CUFI's website) "is the largest pro-Israel organization in the US, with more than a million members."

Christians United for Peace is a spiteful, overtly antisemitic group that has been formed on Facebook apparently with the aim of attempting to counter CUFI and negate the latter's influence by spreading heinous, hateful libels against Zionism and not only Zionism but Judaism itself.

This group, with over 5000 members (some are known activists against the State of Israel), cannot compare with CUFI in size, but it compensates for its comparative lack of numbers with sheer, manic viciousness.
Below is a sample of recent posts.

The hatred of Judaism and corresponding respect for Islam voiced by the group is inexplicable, at least outside the confines of the psychiatrist's couch, given that Islamists are persecuting, forcibly converting, and of course slaughtering, Christians around the globe today.  But the members of this group are of course not the only Christians who make common cause with the foes of Christianity in their zeal to see Israel isolated and destroyed.

Such people are milking the "Mandela effect" for all it's worth, stepping up the demonisation of Israel as an "apartheid state" in expectation of an ultimate triumph that they feel is not so very far away. (Mick Napier, boss of the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign, is by no means alone in the view he expresses in this screen shot.)

In any case, the Christians United for Peace group's existence reminds us that the antisemitism that we thought dead and buried in the wake of the Holocaust is very much alive, not only among leftwing secularists and their unlikely Islamic bedfellows but among the religious followers of a Judean prophet, a Judean prophet whom more and more of them are attempting to depict as a "Palestinian".

All the more reason, then, for Israel and all who admire and support the traduced and embattled Jewish State to be grateful to CUFI and the Christian Zionist movement as a whole, and not to decry Christian Zionism but rather to court and encourage it.

  4. Good point, Fleur.
    I know tht many people think Facebook should delete this horrible group, and I understand their reasoning, but in a way I like to be able to see just what the enemy is thinking!

    1. Me too! That's why I'm on this page.

    Sorry, I went to post your Comment via my IPad and clumsily deleted the comment instead.

    I like your blog and will link to it before the day is out

    1. No problem, Daphne. And, thank you. I was studying and collecting information on this beast when I came across your blog, which inspired me to organise it into a blog. Again, thank you for that.
