CUFI Hails Historic Agreements Between Israel, Bahrain and UAE

Categories: Press Releases

September 15, 2020 WASHINGTON – Several leaders and staff of Christians United for Israel (CUFI), the nation’s largest pro-Israel organization, were on hand for Tuesday’s White House ceremony during which Israel signed peace agreements with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain.

The CUFI delegation consisted of CUFI founder and Chairman Pastor John Hagee, CUFI Action Fund Chairwoman Sandra Parker, CUFI Co-Executive Director Shari Dollinger, and host of CUFI’s The Watchman on TBN Erick Stakelbeck.

“The historic agreements signed today show that peace is on the march and the so-called Arab- Israeli conflict is increasingly an anachronism. Israel is strong and flourishing, and the Arab world is coming to see the Jewish state not as a foe, but as an ally against Iran and a partner for peace and prosperity. It is my sincere hope and prayer that other Arab nations will follow the UAE and Bahrain’s lead and that the Palestinian leadership in particular will accept that peace with Israel is the only path forward,” Hagee said.

“This dramatic and historic shift in the Middle East has been made possible by strong American leadership and longstanding bipartisan support for Israel. I hope these momentous agreements serve as a reminder to our elected officials that Israel’s foremost foreign policy priority is living in peace with its neighbors,” Parker noted.

“Israel is making these inroads with its neighbors because the values upon which it is built enable a society to survive, thrive and progress. Arab leaders who wish the same for their people are coming to recognize that relations with Israel are the most logical step forward toward achieving their goals,” Dollinger added.

With more than 9 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 fifty states and reaches millions with its educational message.

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.
