Update on the Dangerous Iran Deal

President Obama’s dangerous Iran deal is the preeminent foreign policy challenge of our day. Congress is now almost half way through the 60 day review period for deciding whether or not to support this disastrous agreement that will put $150 billion in the hands of the world’s leading sponsor of terror and will birth a Middle East nuclear arms…

The Historically Bad Iran Deal

On Tuesday morning, the day that over 5,000 CUFI members from all 50 states were headed to Capitol Hill, the President announced that America and the other P5+1 nations reached a nuclear deal with Iran.
Let us be clear- this deal is dangerous for Israel, the United States and the entire world.
Armed with information about this historically bad…

The alternative to the Iran Deal is not War

Supporters of the President’s Iran deal argue that there are only two options: the deal or war. In reality, the inverse of their argument is true.  This deal could lead to war by providing the world’s principal sponsor of terror with $150 billion in cash and paving the Islamic Republic’s path to a nuclear bomb.

In order to get an acceptable deal…

Israel and the Election

The American people have spoken and the results are in. Donald J. Trump will be our next president.

John Kerry’s Alternate Reality

On Wednesday, Secretary of State John Kerry gave a speech outlining his vision for peace between Israel and the Palestinians.  This speech made clear why Kerry is merely talking about peace instead of achieving it.  This confused man simply does not comprehend why his prior peace efforts — and all prior peace efforts — have failed.

The reason…

Talking Points on The US Israel Relationship

The media is awash in articles declaring that the U.S.-Israel relationship has hit a new low. And yes, when you have an unnamed Administration official calling the Prime Minister of Israel a “chickensh**t,” things have definitely gotten bad.

But what troubles us more than the childish name calling is the persistent policy. In recent months, we…

Obama’s Dangerous Iran Framework

Yesterday, President Obama announced with great pride that he has reached an agreement with Iran on the framework for a nuclear deal. The details of this framework agreement are still unclear. In fact, Iran has already challenged the Administration’s vague characterization of these parameters. But we already know enough to know that nothing about…

The Pope and the Palestinians

We were disappointed to see initial reports that Pope Francis called Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas an “angel of peace.” We were relieved to see reports that the Pope was likely misunderstood. It seems that what he said to Abbas was that he “could be” an angel of peace.
And indeed, President Abbas could be an angel of peace. In…

Iran Nuclear Talks — More Warning Signs

Yesterday, June 30th, was the deadline by which America and the other P5+1 nations were supposed to reach a deal with Iran to stop its nuclear weapons program. This was not the first such deadline. Yet once again, the deadline came and went without a deal.

Meanwhile, we continue to receive troubling reports from Geneva that the negotiations have…

Keep Your Eye on the Nuclear Ball

We in CUFI were opposed to President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran. And we opposed it with everything we had. We recognized that Iran is an aggressive power with no interest in peace. We knew that this deal would not appease Iran but merely embolden it. And, once the deal was signed, we prayed that we would be proven wrong.

Sadly, we have not…

CUFI Talking Points: Terrorists Target Christians in Pakistan

CUFI has always stressed that Israel’s fight is our fight and that Israel’s enemies are our enemies. Simply put, those who hate Israel also hate the U.S., and those who hate Jews also hate Christians.

Yesterday, we received yet another terrible, tragic confirmation of this fact.

On Easter Sunday, a suicide bomber detonated explosives at a public…

In June, the Tel Aviv days are hot and steamy. But things cool off nicely at night, and families and friends can go out and enjoy their city and their lives. But this past Wednesday night, two men sitting at a Tel Aviv restaurant had other plans. After ordering desert, they rose, pulled out guns, and began firing at their fellow diners. Four…

We at CUFI are shocked and heartbroken today to learn that 13 year old Hallel Yaffa Ariel was stabbed to death by a Palestinian terrorist who broke into her bedroom in Kiryat Arba.

CUFI is a bipartisan organization. We have gone out of our way to acknowledge President Obama when he has stood by Israel. But now we must note that President Obama has crossed the line.
