Craig Hanson and members of We Hold These Truths dissect the events and speakers at the recently held Christians United For Israel 14th annual summit in Washington, DC. In reality, it was a political rally for Israel and a call for war on Iran. Once again, Jesus was ignored, for the most part, during the proceedings. A cavalcade of Christian Zionist politicians, including VP Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, spoke to some 5,000 attendees at the summit. This is a thought-provoking, 22-minute podcast that exposes some of the deceptions of Christian Zionism. For additional analysis of the CUFI summit see: "Countering The 'Christian Zionists/Political Complex'," "Christian Opposition To Christian Zionist Theology Is Growing" and TruNews coverage: "CUFI Conference: John Hagee Spews Pro-Zionist Propaganda to U.S. Churches."

Elected U.S. officials, from the President on down, give lip service to the U.S. Constitution while ignoring it. Chuck Carlson and members of We Hold These Truths look into three aspects of the Constitution relating to who has the authority to declare war. Is it the President? Who has the power to create money? Is it the Federal Reserve System? And who has the power to levy tariffs. It is the President? Find out in this insightful, 21 minute podcast.

Christians United For Israel, during their 14th annual summit on July 7-8, 2019, were challenged by the campaign, "Rise Against Racism: Counter CUFI." The campaign was sponsored by Friends of Sabeel North America (FOSNA) and joined by Jewish Voice For Peace, American Muslims for Palestine, US Campaign for Palestinian Rights. It was endorsed by more than 30 organizations. We Hold These Truths challenged CUFI at its second annual summit in 2007 and endorsed FOSNA's current campaign. CUFI's leader, John Hagee, boasts of being a Christian Zionist and revealed his political version of Christianity at the CUFI summit by inviting prominent Christian Zionist politicians that included VP Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Advisor John Bolton. In this on the ground report by Mark Bebawi on Arab Voices Radio, Tarek Abuata, executive director of FOSNA and other campaign members are interviewed along with comments by two CUFI attendees. This is a remarkable 50-minute program that exposes the "Christian Zionist/Political Complex."

In this remarkable, 61 minute video, Pastor Chuck Baldwin is interviewed by Steven Ben-Nun of Israeli News Live about his journey out of a deep seated and three decades long belief that the modern state of Israel is the fulfillment of biblical prophecy. What's remarkable about this interview is that Steven Ben-Nun is a Messianic (Jewish) Christian who had been under the influence of Zionism, himself. The large majority of Messianic Christians are fervent Christian Zionists. We Hold These Truths has, also, interviewed Pastor Baldwin in our podcast, "Pastor Dr. Chuck Baldwin Rejects Christian Zionism."

When We Hold These Truths started challenging Israel supporting churches in 2002, the term "Christian Zionism" was not in use. Today, there are more groups like FOSNA (Friends Of Sabeel North America), TruNews and a growing number of mainline Christians that are challenging Christian Zionism. In this 19 minute podcast, Chuck Carlson and members of WHTT discuss some of the latest developments of the "Turning" [from Christian Zionism] that we described in our 2010 documentary, "Christian Zionism: The Tragedy & The Turning, Part I."
