The following day, in addition to asking senators to confirm Friedman, CUFI leaders will lobby in support of S. Res. 6, which calls for the repeal of UN Security Council Resolution 2334, and S. 11, which requires the relocation of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
“There are millions of Christian Zionists across the country who are incensed at the Obama administration’s treatment of Israel, and we will make our voice heard both in the halls of Congress and at the ballot box. The days of appeasing Israel’s enemies and undermining the US-Israel alliance are over,” Hagee said.
“We are going to Capitol Hill to deliver a very specific message to both sides of the aisle: Use US leverage to end Israel bashing at the UN, support moving the American embassy to Jerusalem, and confirm David Friedman, President-elect Donald Trump's excellent choice to be US Ambassador to Israel. The American people stand with Jewish state, and we expect our leaders in Washington to reflect that position in every relevant vote they take,” Bauer noted. "Our leaders across the county have been appalled by the Obama Administration's parting shots at Israel. They've been contacting us nonstop, asking that we speak out as effectively as possible. We decided that this was one of those times when we needed to give these leaders an opportunity to come to DC and personally ask their senators to do everything in their power to counteract these anti-Israel moves," Brog added.
