CUFI Calls On U.S., U.K. To Suspend Aid To UNRWA


WASHINGTON / LONDON – On Monday, the leadership of Christians United for Israel (CUFI) and CUFI U.K. released the following statements calling for the U.S. and U.K. governments, respectively, to follow Germany’s lead in suspending aid to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), which operates in partnership with Hamas. 

CUFI founder and Chairman Pastor John Hagee said:

“CUFI applauds the clear-eyed moral courage of the German government to recognize that UNRWA helps Hamas maintain its grip over the Palestinian people, infect children with antisemitic lies, and divert resources toward building and maintaining the most significant terror infrastructure in the world. President Biden should follow Germany’s lead by ordering a suspension of U.S. taxpayer dollars to an organization that provides in-kind contributions to murderers and hostage takers. Not one penny should flow to UNRWA from Americans until the U.N. reforms itself to ensure it helps, not hinders, the Palestinian people.” 

CUFI U.K. Executive Director Des Starritt said:

“The Foreign Office should take note of Berlin’s actions and follow suit. London was late to proscribing Hezbollah; must we also persist, at this tragic moment, in sending money to one of the entities most responsible for fueling war and hatred in the Middle East? Certainly the British public does not want to see our money flowing to those who teach hatred and glorify violence.”

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 Action Update: The United Nations or the Tower of Babel?

At the CUFI Action Fund, we must admit that one of our least favorite topics to dive into is the United Nations. It’s not because the entity and the numerous mouthpieces for tyranny that roam those halls do not deserve condemnation. Rather, it’s because of what the UN could’ve been: a forum for honest and open discussions to solve the world’s problems without bloodshed. Instead, as CUFI founder and Chairman Pastor John Hagee has noted, the UN is an ugly mix between the Tower of Babel  and a political brothel.

The Action Update: Negotiating with Terrorists

This week, as we commemorate the horrors of 9/11, it is incumbent upon every American to not just mourn that tragedy but also to learn from it. We have all committed to never forgetting the lives lost that day, the bravery of the first responders who answered the call when the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were attacked, and the astounding heroism displayed by those ordinary Americans on United Flight 93 who sacrificed their lives to prevent the terrorists hitting their third target: the U.S. Capitol.

The Action Update: Debate Spotlight: Israel

During the first Republican Presidential debate, there was a brief flash of strenuous disagreement between longtime pro-Israel leader Amb. Nikki Haley and Vivek Ramaswamy, a businessman who recently called for ending all U.S. aid to Israel. To her credit, Amb. Haley was the only candidate on the debate stage who called Ramaswamy out on his anti-Israel position, going so far as to rightly articulate “Israel doesn’t need America, America needs Israel.”

The Action Update: Iran’s Hostage Industrial Complex

The White House is on the precipice of providing Iran with an enormous cash windfall in return for five American hostages. And it’s clear the full scope of the Biden administration’s engagement with Iran is being kept as secret as possible for as long as possible, thus undermining any Congressional oversight of the high-stakes game the President is playing. This will have grave consequences for every American. So, let’s get into it.
