The alternative to the Iran Deal is not War

Tuesday, August 16, 2016

Supporters of the President’s Iran deal argue that there are only two options: the deal or war.

Israel and the Election

Tuesday, July 19, 2016

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

John Kerry’s Alternate Reality

Tuesday, June 21, 2016

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 … Read More

Talking Points on The US Israel Relationship

Saturday, May 21, 2016

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, … Read More

Obama’s Dangerous Iran Framework

Saturday, May 21, 2016

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.

The Pope and the Palestinians

Saturday, May 21, 2016

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 … Read More

Iran Nuclear Talks — More Warning Signs

Saturday, May 21, 2016

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.

Keep Your Eye on the Nuclear Ball

Saturday, May 21, 2016

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 … Read More

CUFI Talking Points: Terrorists Target Christians in Pakistan

Saturday, May 21, 2016

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 … Read More

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, … Read More
