Sep 13, 2012, 10:09 ET from American Center for Law and Justice

WASHINGTON, Sept. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), which works to protect religious freedom and human rights in this country and abroad, said today it's time for the Obama Administration to end its foreign policy of "appeasement and apologies" and stop sending U.S. taxpayer dollars to countries which permit and support the terrorism of Islamic militants bent on destroying America.

"The anti-American violence at the direction of Islamic extremists in not only very troubling, but amplifies what can only be described as a failed foreign policy by the Obama Administration," said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ. "At a time when President Obama refuses to meet face-to-face with the Prime Minister of Israel, our most important ally in the region, the Obama Administration continues to send billions of taxpayer dollars to countries that permit and support the terrorism of radical Islamists bent on destroying America. It's time to bring an end to a foreign policy of appeasement and apologies. We're calling on the Obama Administration to cut off funding to Libya and Egypt until stable governments - which support America - are put in place."

In less than 24 hours, the ACLJ has heard from more than 5,500 Americans who demand that the U.S. stop sending taxpayer dollars to Middle East countries that permit and support radical Islamic extremists dedicated to destroying America.

Led by Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow, the American Center for Law and Justice is based in Washington, D.C. and works in this country and abroad to protect religious freedom and human rights. The ACLJ has seven international affiliate offices, including one in Israel. The ACLJ is online at aclj.org.
