Pastor John Hagee, founder and chairman of Christians United for Israel (CUFI), presented a petition expressing solidarity with the State of Israel to members of Congress in late March. The petition is signed by more than 100,000 American Christians.
The Israel Pledge says:
"We believe that the Jewish people have a right to live in their ancient land of Israel, and that the modern State of Israel is the fulfillment of this historic right.
We maintain that there is no excuse for acts of terrorism against Israel and that Israel has the same right as every other nation to defend her citizens from such violent attacks.
We pledge to stand with our brothers and sisters in Israel and to speak out on their behalf whenever and wherever necessary until the attacks stop and they are finally living in peace and security with their neighbors."
CUFI leaders are scheduled to meet with several members of congress including Rep. Shelley Berkley (D- IN) and Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ).
"Israel is America's closest and most trusted ally. We are committed to steadfastly supporting the Jewish State as she fights to defend the democratic values that we all hold dear," Hagee said.
"As our leaders in Washington make decisions about American foreign policy in the Middle East, it is important for them to know that Christians across the country remain solidly committed to a strong US-Israel relationship."
Christians United for Israel is the nation's leading Christian pro-Israel organization and is among the largest Christian grassroots organizations in the United States, spanning all 50 states and reaching millions with its message.
The organization has held over 80 Night to Honor Israel events in cities across the country since its inception in 2006. The events teach Christians about the importance of supporting Israel and building bridges between the Christian and Jewish communities.
CUFI's mission is to provide a national association through which every pro-Israel church, parachurch organization, ministry or individual in America can speak and act with one voice in support of Israel.
