WASHINGTON – On Monday, the leadership of the Christians United for Israel (CUFI) Action Fund released the following statement concerning reports that Qatar is seeking to acquire the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.
“Qatar is a terror-supporting, anti-Israel nation that has allied itself with both Iran and Turkey. Doha cannot have it both ways. They must stop supporting terror and allying with our enemies before any such request is taken seriously,” said CUFI Action Fund Chairwoman Sandra Parker.
“Rather than embracing the UAE’s forward-looking approach to the Middle East, including normalization with Israel, and seeing an example to be followed, Qatar persists in backing Hamas and feuding with its Arab neighbors. This request to purchase America’s most advanced fighter plane should be denied immediately,” 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.
