Hundreds of CUFI Leaders to Demand U.S. House Pass Supplemental Aid Bill Without Further Delays

WASHINGTONThis morning, Christians United for Israel (CUFI)’s emergency fly-in will conclude with 250 ministry and community leaders descending on Capitol Hill to deliver an unambiguous message to Members of Congress that emergency supplemental aid to Israel must pass without any further delay.

CUFI has been unequivocal in its call for Washington to stand by Israel in word and in deed in its hour of need – and unwavering in its determination to make clear that Congressional inaction will lead to more devastation in Israel while continuing to undermine our standing in the world. As CUFI founder and Chairman Pastor John Hagee said last evening at the opening of a dinner featuring remarks from House Speaker Mike Johnson, Representative Tony Gonzales, and former U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, Congress needs to “get it done – and get it done now.”

“The only politicians who represent our 10 million member organization are the ones who stand with Israel. If you are not for Israel, we are not for you,” declared Pastor Hagee.

“We need your help. Israel is being abandoned by more and more people – even some in the United States Congress – and that’s a great shame,” said Speaker Johnson. “Weakness is too costly. Strength will ultimately save us and ensure peace. We must not hesitate. We must not waver. We must confront the darkness of terrorism, guided by the light of freedom and our faith in God,” he continued.

“The waiting is over. The time is now. The time is absolutely now to get this security package over the finish line. We need your help,” said Representative Gonzales

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.
