Christians United for Israel’s founder, Pastor John Hagee, has joined with 60 other Christian leaders and organisations in signing a letter to President Trump.
CUFI’s message was simple:
“We believe the time has come, at long last, to uphold American law by moving the U.S. Embassy to Israel’s eternal and indivisible capital city of Jerusalem.”
Our friends at American Christian Leaders for Israel organised the letter, which encourages President Trump to fulfil his campaign promise to move the embassy. You can read the letter here.
CUFI Action Fund Director, Gary Bauer said, “Congress voted in 1995 to relocate the U.S. Embassy to Israel’s capital city. It was not a controversial issue. It passed the House 374-to-37 and passed the Senate 93-to-5. In spite of that overwhelming support, however, our embassy remains in Tel Aviv. And because of that, Israel’s enemies continue to deny Israel’s sovereignty over Jerusalem, as well as the Jewish heritage of Jerusalem. In doing so, they also deny the historical roots of Christianity.”
Among those also signing the letter were Dr. James Dobson of Family Talk Radio, Penny Nance of Concerned Women for America, Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, Dr. Charles Stanley and Susan Michael of the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem.
Trump’s Truman Moment
In today’s Washington Times, Pastor John Hagee explains how President Harry Truman was faced with the decision of whether to recognise Israel in 1948. Key members of the Truman Administration bitterly opposed recognising the Jewish state. Thankfully, President Truman ignored them.
As President Trump prepares to head to the Middle East, now is the time to make your voice heard.
