In a strong show of support for Israel, Christians United for Israel (CUFI) just crossed the million member mark.

CUFI founder and chairman John Hagee announced the milestone at event in Jerusalem featuring Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“Six years ago Prime Minister Netanyahu asked me if we could unite Christians in support of Israel. I told him I didn’t know. Having reached 1 million members, I think the answer is clear. America’s Christians are uniting in support of Israel,” Hagee said.

During his remarks, Netanyahu thanked the group for their support and congratulated CUFI on enlisting 1 million members.

“We are witnessing a dramatic transformation in the relationship between Christians and Jews, who are focusing now on the common values and the common future we both share,” Netanyahu said.

After delivering remarks, CUFI executive director David Brog noted, “With Iran steadily progressing towards a nuclear weapon, and Palestinian terrorists once again reminding the world that they are more concerned with destroying Israel than making peace, I believe that the news of our having crossed the million member threshold could not have come at a more critical juncture. Our first million members is a solid start, but we’ve only just begun.”
