“Iran’s charm offensive is nothing more than a thinly veiled attempt to buy more time for their nuclear weapons program,” Hagee said.

Meanwhile, Huckabee spoke about the shared values between the U.S. and Israel.

“If you wonder why this land of ours exists, it exists for liberty, it exists for freedom, it exists for the right of people to exercise their faith. There is only one country on earth that so mirrors that – it is Israel,” Huckabee said.

The event also included the announcement of over $2.7 million in donations that were made to several Israeli charities, including Save a Child’s Heart, Friends of the IDF and the Koby Mandell Foundation.

With more than 1 million members, CUFI is the largest pro-Israel organization in the U.S.
