Christians United for Israel Statement on Obama Administration's Reported Offer to Support UNSC Statement Condemning Israel
WASHINGTON – In response to reports that the Obama Administration may support a statement from the U.N. Security Council condemning “Israeli settlement activity,” Christians United for Israel (CUFI), the nation’s largest pro-Israel organization, released the following statement on Thursday:
CUFI strongly condemns the Obama Administration’s reported offer to support a UN Security Council statement condemning “Israeli settlement activity,” and urges President Obama to veto any Security Council action that unfairly singles out the State of Israel.
Year after year, the American people have made clear that they hold the U.S.-Israel relationship in the highest esteem; CUFI believes that anything less than a veto of any Security Council action that unfairly condemns Israel, or prejudges final status negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, fails to reflect the will of the American people.
The UN is already obsessed with condemning Israel. Further, every foray by the Obama Administration into supporting or imposing preconditions on negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians has only pushed the prospects for peace further out of reach. Rather than enabling the UN to yet again unfairly single out the Jewish State, we urge the Obama Administration to work with all parties involved to reach a true and lasting peace.
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 message. Each year CUFI holds hundreds of pro-Israel events in cities around the country. And each July, thousands of pro-Israel Christians gather in Washington, D.C. to participate in the CUFI Washington Summit and make their voices heard in support of Israel and the Jewish people.
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.
