Christians United for Israel, CUFI, on Tuesday (June 24) said it distributed an action alert to its membership in opposition to the Presbyterian Church USA’s recent vote to divest from three companies that do business with Israel, and, within 24 hours the alert generated more than 26,000 responses in support.
David Brog, executive director of CUFI, the largest pro-Israel organization in the U.S. with 1.6 million standing members, said, “The Presbyterian Church USA has demonstrated its moral cowardice to the world.”
“Happily, this small and shrinking denomination does not speak for America’s Christians or Americans in general,” Brog said. “We refuse to jump on this anti-Israel bandwagon. We refuse to ignore the real human suffering in the Middle East – from Syria to Iraq to Iran. And we refuse to blame Israel alone for its conflict with its Arab neighbors.”
