David Brog is the executive director of Christians United for Israel (CUFI). Before CUFI, Brog worked in the United States Senate for seven years, rising to be chief of staff to Senator Arlen Specter and staff director of the Senate Judiciary Committee. He has also served as an executive at America Online and practiced corporate law in Tel Aviv, Israel and Philadelphia, PA. In 2007, the Forward newspaper listed Brog in its “Forward 50″ most influential Jews in America.

Christians United for Israel, which has pastor John Hagee as its posterboy but is actually led by Executive Director David Brog. Brog is not only Jewish, but is in fact the cousin of Israeli Defense Minister and former Prime Minister Ehud Barak.
Most people familiar with the hardline pro-Israel group associate it with John Hagee, the theatrical San Antonio-based pastor who has a large ministry. He is the ceremonial head of the CUFI. But the guy who actually runs the organization, is the much less well known CUFI executive director.
This anti-Christian Jewish radical, David Brog, has even admitted that he does not believe in the evangelical theology that he promotes in his “Christians United” organization. In a Q & A with readers of Israel’s Haaretz newspaper some years ago, David Brog was asked if his theology required Israel to be in control of the entire Holy Land. “Just to clarify,” Brog replied, “the evangelical theology I write about is not my theology — I’m Jewish.”
There’s no questioning his pro-Israel credentials. When another reader asked if he was related to the current Israeli Defense Minister, Brog congratulated him on his perspicacity. Explained the CUFI leader: Former Prime Minister Ehud Barak is my cousin. He changed his last name from “Brog” to “Barak” during his time in the army. Given Barak’s illustrious career in the Israeli army and government, this is a relation of which I’m very proud of.
