CUFI Action Fund Reacts to SASC Vote on Kahl

(03/24/2021) WASHINGTON – On Wednesday, the Christians United for Israel (CUFI) Action Fund, released the following statement concerning today’s vote on the nomination of Colin Kahl to serve as Undersecretary of Defense for Policy in the Senate Committee on Armed Services:

”The CUFI Action Fund is disappointed in Senator Manchin’s decision to support Dr. Kahl’s nomination, especially in the face of widespread opposition in West Virginia.

“None have questioned the accuracy of the claims we have made concerning Dr. Kahl’s record. He remains a serial Iran appeaser and his record of antagonism towards Israel is shameful.

“As the tied committee vote shows, Dr. Kahl is an overtly partisan pick. His advancement harms the longstanding bipartisan consensus on a range of national security issues.

“The battle over Dr. Kahl’s nomination has been and remains a competition between the power of elites and the will of the people. As this partisan nomination moves forward, we urge the Senate to reject Colin Kahl and call upon the White House to put forth a nominee who can garner wide bipartisan support.”

The CUFI Action Fund, a nonprofit 501(c)(4), nonpartisan organization, is related to 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.
