Christians United for Israel now has a million members, the group run by Pastor John Hagee announced. "Christians United for Israel (CUFI), the nation’s largest pro-Israel organization, announced Sunday that it had crossed the million member mark," the group noted in a press release. "The announcement was made by CUFI founder and Chairman Pastor John Hagee 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 one million members, I think the answer is clear. America’s Christians are uniting in support of Israel,” Hagee said after the event.

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