(10/19/2021) WASHINGTON – On Tuesday, the Christians United for Israel (CUFI) Action Fund welcomed reports that the U.S. Senate’s Democratic leadership is prepared to overcome Senator Rand Paul’s obstruction to approving Israel’s emergency request to replenish its Iron Dome missile defense system in the wake of a terrorist onslaught earlier this year.
“Iron Dome saves Israeli and Palestinian lives. Senator Paul’s obstructionism defies the will of his constituents and ignores the mainstream positions of Americans of all political persuasions. We welcome Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s statement that if Senator Paul continues to block support for Iron Dome, the Senate will use “other means” to ensure the safety of Israel’s civilian population,” said CUFI Action Fund Chairwoman Sandra Parker.
“It is the will of the American people, not a few wayward politicians, that should win the day. From The Squad to Senator Paul, fringe politicians need to be sidelined. If Senator Paul wishes to address U.S. support for Afghanistan, he should do so without holding Israel hostage,” Parker added.
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.
