WASHINGTON – On Friday, the Christians United for Israel (CUFI) Action Fund issued a statement welcoming the Trump administration’s imposition of new sanctions on Iran:

As recent events clearly remind us, Iran’s imperialist ambitions must be met with strength.

We applaud the Trump administration for imposing sanctions on additional sectors of the Iranian economy and welcome the designations of senior individuals in Iran’s national security establishment as well as individuals and companies associated with manufacturing and metal production.

The days in which Iranian aggression is met with appeasement are over. As long as Iran persists in seeking to export the Islamic Revolution, the regime should suffer increasing economic and diplomatic pressure.

Only this maximum pressure campaign can diminish the likelihood the Islamic Republic acquires a nuclear weapon and increase the likelihood the Iranian people will one day be able to take their country back from Tehran’s tyrants.

The CUFI Action Fund, a nonprofit 501(c)(4), nonpartisan organization, is related to the nation’s largest pro-Israel organization, Christians United for Israel (CUFI). The Action Fund is dedicated to ensuring our elected officials hear the perspective of the millions of Christian Zionists across the country. The Action Fund’s policy agenda includes support for a strong US-Israel relationship, standing up to anti-Semitism, defending Israel’s right to self-defense and self-determination, and opposition to regional bad actors such as Iran and Turkey and the terrorist organizations they support.
