Pro-Israel Christians Pushing Halt to US Funding for PA

By: JTA

More than 4,000 activists attending the annual Washington conference of Christians United for Israel cheered calls to stop funding for the Palestinians.

Pastor John Hagee, who founded the movement, said at its “Night to Honor Israel” on Tuesday that the United States should “shut off the foreign aid to the Palestinians until they publicly recognize the right of Israel to exist, the right to defend themselves against all of their enemies and the right to secure borders.”

To more cheers, Hagee also called for “red lines” to keep Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.

The messages echoed in legislation that activists lobbied for in congressional offices on Wednesday, including bills that would tighten Iran sanctions and enhance the U.S.-Israel relationship.

A new emphasis for the group, which describes itself as the biggest pro-Israel group in the United States, was on protecting religious minorities.

Activists backed legislation calling for a special envoy on religious minorities in the Middle East and Central Asia.

Speakers at the conference included radio and web personality Glenn Beck; Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.), the leader of the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives; Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas); and Malcolm Hoenlein, the executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.

  1. The Guardian says:

    I know that we Jews are so desperate for peace, that we delude ourselves into believing that concessions to the Muslims, no matter how obscene, will bring about peace. This behavior is delusional and immoral. It empowers our enemies, and it undermines our legitimacy in the eyes of the world. Release Jew-hating murders with the blood of little children on their hands from prison as a precondition to “peace talks” – as DEMANDED by Abbas and Obama? It’s sick. Very, very sick. I pray that Jewish leaders learn from our Christian brothers in CUFI what it means to have strength of spirit and courage. I pray that our Christian brothers never tire of our foolish behavior and give up on Israel (I shudder to think what would become of Israel if it lost the support of our Christian-Zionist brothers). I pray that one day, our so-called American Jewish leaders would speak with the same purpose and clarity as our Christian friend Mr Hagee. May I live so long.

    If not for these loyal Christians who love Israel and the Jews, Israel would have been in deep trouble a long time ago. Waiting for the Leftist Jews to defend Israel is like waiting for the Messiah to come. We will have to wait a little longer.
