WASHINGTON, July 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Christians United for Israel (CUFI), the nation's largest pro-Israel organization, will hold its ninth annual Washington Summit on July 21-22 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

This year's Summit will feature a host of leading experts, religious leaders and political figures including Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (live via satellite), former Deputy National Security Advisor Elliot Abrams, Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN), Senators John Cornyn (R-TX), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), James Inhofe (R-OK), and Tim Scott (R-SC), Israel's Ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Dr. Charles Krauthammer, and former CIA director James Woolsey.

"As Palestinian terrorists fire rockets on Israel's cities and towns, and Iran's leaders continue to pursue nuclear weapons, now more than ever it is vital that Christians stand up and speak up for Israel," said Pastor John Hagee, founder and National Chairman of CUFI.
