CUFI Applauds Senate Passage of Israel Aid

April 23, 2024

WASHINGTON – On Tuesday, the leadership of Christians United for Israel (CUFI), the nation’s largest pro-Israel organization, released the following statements welcoming the Senate’s advancement of the national security supplemental.

“This aid package will increase Israel’s ability to defend herself and decrease the likelihood of a wider conflict in the region. We applaud Speaker Johnson for seeing this issue through and are grateful to the Members of Congress, on both sides of the aisle, whose actions in support of this legislation place them firmly on the right side of history and the Word of God,” said CUFI founder and Chairman Pastor John Hagee.

The vital Israel aid legislation, which now heads to the President’s desk, was the exclusive focus of an emergency fly-in hosted by CUFI last week, during which 250 ministry and community leaders met with their Representatives to discuss the importance of supporting Israel.

The organization also launched an Action Alert in the days leading up to the House vote which saw 65,000 individuals email Congress in support of the aid.

“Support for Israel, as she battles Iran and its proxies, is non-negotiable. The vast majority of Congress understands that 4/13 changed the world as we know it—and as such we are particularly grateful to those Members of Congress who reconsidered their position and voted in favor of this critical legislation. The bipartisanship exhibited in both chambers over the past ten days should be applauded. If Saudi Arabia and Jordan could set their differences aside to stand with the Jewish state on 4/13 then so can Republicans and Democrats,” said CUFI Action Fund Chairwoman Sandra Parker.

In addition to the Israel emergency supplemental, the 21st Century Peace Through Strength Act, included several additional CUFI priorities, chief among them the Stop Harboring Iranian Petroleum (SHIP) Act, which was one of the group’s 2023 CUFI Washington Summit legislative agenda items, as well as additional strong sanctions on the Islamic Republic and its proxies.

With more than 10 million members, Christians United for Israel is the largest pro-Israel organization in the United States and one of the leading Christian grassroots movements in the world. CUFI spans all fifty states and reaches millions with its educational message.

The CUFI Action Fund, a nonprofit 501(c)(4), nonpartisan organization, is the policy arm of the nation’s largest pro-Israel organization, Christians United for Israel (CUFI). The Action Fund is dedicated to ensuring our elected officials hear the perspective of the millions of Christian Zionists across the country.
