CUFI Supports Re-Imposition Of Sanctions As JCPOA 90-Day Wind Down Deadline Arrives

August 6, 2018

SAN ANTONIO, TX – On Monday, Christians United for Israel (CUFI) Founder and Chairman, Pastor John Hagee, issued the following statement on the re-imposition of sanctions related to President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

“The president’s decision to withdraw the United States from the JCPOA was a courageous action. CUFI welcomes the return of U.S. sanctions against Iran. The regime’s economic isolation will only worsen if its malevolent behavior continues.

“Businesses are fleeing the Iranian market. Iran’s currency is plummeting in value. And the Iranian people are demanding change. Iran’s support for terrorists and deception surrounding its nuclear program must end once and for all. As always, CUFI stands behind the Iranian people as they stand to unburden themselves from the damage caused by this oppressive regime.”

With more than 4.3 million members, Christians United for Israel is the largest pro-Israel organization in the United States and one of the leading Christian grassroots movements in the world. CUFI spans all fifty states and reaches millions with its message. Each year CUFI holds hundreds of pro-Israel events in cities around the country. And each July, thousands of pro-Israel Christians gather in Washington, D.C. to participate in the CUFI Washington Summit and make their voices heard in support of Israel and the Jewish people.
