Dr. Frank Dimant, CEO of Christians United for Israel (CUFI) Canada at the behest of Christian leaders has begun organizing on a fast track the 2016 series of missions to Israel wherein Christian pastors, leaders, scholars and lay people will participate. In addition, Rabbinic leaders and Jewish lay people will join CUFI CANADA in a United Solidarity Mission to the State of Israel and its citizens.
Dr. Frank Dimant, who is recognized as a leading spokesperson for grassroots Jewry, will be travelling this week to Israel. He explained, “It is a time for proactive advocacy but also a time to set a personal example”.
In addition to planning and coordinating the critical missions, he felt a personal need to be with the people of Israel at this time and to touch the Holy Wall to offer a prayer for the Jewish state and its families. He plans to walk the streets of Jerusalem in solidarity with those facing the knife intifada.
As an honorary citizen of the ancient city of Hebron, he further said, “I intend to visit the Jewish community in Hebron to demonstrate that it will never be forgotten by Jews around the world. We must always thank these individuals who ensure that there is a vibrant community filled with Torah values in the land that was promised by the Almighty to the Jewish People”.
Those individuals, Churches and Synagogues who wish to enquire about participating in the mission program should please contact CUFI CANADA’s Director of Communications, Rabbi Shlomo Schwartz, at 416-839-2090 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Christians United for Israel (CUFI) Canada is gravely concerned over the appointment of Member of Parliament Omar Alghabra to the Position of Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Foreign Affairs by Prime Minister Trudeau.
Omar Alghabra was once refused entry to the US by American officials. He actively supports anti-Israel events in Canada and the boycott of Israel and has repeatedly condemned Israel as a “brutal” country favouring instead Hamas and Hezbollah, renowned terrorist groups.
Omar Alghabra used to head the Canadian Arab Federation which lost Federal funding because of promoting anti Canadian values in programs it was running for new Canadians
Mr. Trudeau’s elevation of Omar Alghabra to a senior government position appears to herald in a new era in Canada Israel relations. Placing him in Foreign Affairs seems a reversal of the Prime Minister’s own promise to not change the substance of Canada’s relationship with Israel.
In addition in his new portfolio he may be instrumental in having input in influencing the security criteria that will be used to flush out terrorists and radicalized families and individuals in the rapid processing of refugees to Canada. This possibility is causing much consternation among Canadians concerned with national security.
Christians United for Israel (CUFI) Canada sends condolences to all families bereaved and traumatized in San Bernardino today. The rage preached by ISIS in person and over the web that has devastated Belgium, Israel, Mali, Nairobi, Ottawa and Paris has now found California.
We appeal to Prime Minister Trudeau to take a forceful approach to all terrorists who preach or incite hate in Canada. He must make it clear to them and us that inciters of hate will be removed from Canadian soil.
