- About Us
Christians United for Israel will send our members Rapid Response Action Alerts at critical junctures throughout the year to mobilize millions of Christians on behalf of Israel. Christians United for Israel’s Rapid Response Action Alerts generate millions of phone calls and emails to the Administration and Congress on behalf of Israel.

Examples of Past Rapid Response Action Alerts:
September 2009- Ask Congress to Stop Iran
I urge you to do everything in your power to apply the maximum economic and diplomatic pressure on Iran to force it to end its uranium enrichment program.
The President of Iran has repeatedly threatened to wipe Israel off the map. He's also threatened to destroy America. Iran is making steady progress towards acquiring nuclear weapons with which to carry out these threats.
The window to stop Iran from enriching enough uranium for a nuclear weapon is rapidly closing. According to press reports, Iran could have enough enriched uranium for a nuclear weapon within one year.
We believe that the stakes are too high for America not to act. We believe that time is too short for Congress not to Act now. We urge you not to squander this opportunity to do something concrete to address this mounting threat.
June 2009 Rapid Response Action Alert- Ask President Obama not to pressure Israel
Over 31,000 CUFI members emailed the White House and asked President Obama not to pressure Israel. This Action Alert was in respones to President Obama's meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu where. CUFI members asked President Obama to treat Prime Minister Netanyahu as a partner, and not to pressure him as an adversary.
September 2008 Rapid Response Action Alert- Ask President Bush Place Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard on the Specially Designated Global Terrorist List
On October 25th, the White House announced harsh new sanctions against Iran's Revolutionary Guard and other Iranian entities. These are the most severe sanctions the US has imposed against Iran since 1979. These sanctions will send a clear signal of American resolve to Iran and to our allies. At the same time, these steps will make it much more difficult for Iran's Revolutionary Guard to find the funds and business partners it needs to continue its march towards nuclear weapons.
This decision comes after a month-long campaign by Christians United for Israel to persuade the White House to impose stricter sanctions on Iran's Revolutionary Guard. We know that the thousands of e-mails and phone calls from our activists helped persuade the White House to take this most important step. We spoke out strongly on this issue when few other groups did.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the Rapid Response Campaign. Your efforts made a difference. Because of your stand, an enemy of Israel and America is facing much greater challenges today.
Annapolis Rapid Response Action Alert:
CUFI activists send over 14,500 e-mails to the White House and placed thousands more calls asking President Bush not to pressure Israel to make territorial concessions at Annapolis.
We are pleased to report that the Annapolis Summit ended without any such pressure being placed on Israel. In fact, the Summit was little more than an extended photo opportunity. In this narrow sense, our campaign was a success.
In a broader sense, however, our work has only just begun. The parties have agreed that Annapolis would be the beginning of a process of further negotiation which will present many more opportunities for America to press Israel to make dangerous concessions. We will continue to watch these negotiations very carefully. If we believe that Israel is facing coercion at any time during the process, we will not hesitate to launch another Action Alert campaign.
We believe that the Jewish people have a right to live in their ancient land of Israel, and that the modern State of Israel is the fulfillment of this historic right.
