Legislators show support at CUFI


WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, members of the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate conveyed their unequivocal support for the U.S.-Israel relationship at day three of Christians United for IsraeI’s 15th Annual Summit. CUFI’s Summit, being conducted virtually this year, featured numerous legislators from both chambers of Congress reassuring their strong commitments to stand with Israel to CUFI members across the country. Speaking to thousands of dedicated CUFI members, some of Israel’s strongest congressional allies delivered impactful messages discussing topics ranging from standing with Israel, to confronting Iran, and combating anti-Semitism.  

“We were thrilled to welcome such a strong cadre of Members of Congress to speak during our virtual Summit. Regardless of party, its elected officials, like the ones from whom we heard, who strengthen the US-Israel relationship and stand up to anti-Semitism. I am deeply grateful to all of the Members of Congress who addressed our Summit,” said CUFI founder and chairman, Pastor John Hagee. 

CUFI, the nation’s largest pro-Israel organization, was honored to hear from congressional leaders Senator Marco Rubio, Senator Tim Scott, Senator Tom Cotton, Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Marsha Blackburn, Senator James Lankford, Senator Jacky Rosen and Representative Dan Crenshaw on the strategic alliance between the United States and Israel.

“Israel is the only pro-American, free enterprise democracy in the Middle East. It also happens to be among our strongest allies in the world, and a nation committed to the express and direct purpose that Never Again will there not be a homeland for the Jewish people if they face threats,” said Sen. Rubio.

“In 2016, I first introduced the bipartisan Anti-Semitism Awareness Act. It is crucial to have clear and concise language defining anti-Semitism to help defend against the violence and hatred that sometimes occurs on our nation’s college campuses,” said Sen. Scott.

“Even though we’re separated in body, we’re united in spirit and in common cause as Christians and devoted supporters of the Jewish people and the State of Israel,” said Sen. Cotton.

“Today, thanks to the leadership of CUFI, thanks to the leadership of each of you, America’s friendship and alliance with Israel is stronger than ever,” said Sen. Cruz. “This is a gathering of prayer warriors, a gathering of men and women who spend time in the Word, who spend time on your knees praying for Israel, praying for America, praying for our leaders, that we stand strong.”

“We know that we will never eliminate anti-Semitic and anti-Israel attitudes if we only focus on the battlefield or only on what’s said in legislatures and parliaments. We have to fight it in the hearts and minds of people all over the world,” said Sen. Blackburn.

“With mounting threats in the region and rising anti-Semitism in the U.S. and around the globe, the bonds between the United States and Israel are more important now than they ever have been. That’s why it’s so important for Jews and non-Jewish allies to come together in support of Israel and the Jewish people,” said Sen. Rosen.

With more than 8 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 50 states and reaches millions with its educational message.
