WASHINGTON (01/29/2021) – On Friday, the leadership of the Christians United for Israel (CUFI) Action Fund issued the following response to Robert Malley’s appointment to serve as President Biden’s Iran envoy:
“Robert Malley is the wrong man for the job. He has a well-documented track record of appeasing America’s adversaries and condemning one of our closest allies. Whoever sits across the table from Iran’s tyrannical regime should be more interested in a good deal than a deal at any price – Robert Malley is not that person,” said CUFI Action Fund Chairwoman Sandra Parker.
“We continue to urge the Biden administration to not repeat the errors of 2015 and instead engage Iran in a manner that maximizes the likelihood of securing a strong, comprehensive agreement with bipartisan support. Unfortunately, Malley’s appointment signals that this outcome is less likely,” Parker added.
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.
Depending upon one’s priorities, the Iran nuclear agreement was the best of deals or the worst of deals. For Arabs, Israelis and their allies, the Iran nuclear agreement was the codification of a descent into Iranian hegemony and nuclear blackmail. It was the apotheosis of appeasement.

And for the Russians and the Chinese, it was a method to eventually do business with one of the world’s most evil regimes. In this week’s Action Update, we delve into the rapid series of recent events that helps put the future of any agreement – both its details and its prospects – into perspective.

This week, given the mob attack on the Capitol building, we cannot offer a traditional Action Update. What happened last week was an attack on our nation, our Constitution, and for us at the Action Fund, our friends and colleagues. Next week, as Vice President Pence said upon the liberation of the Capitol building from the violent mob, the Action Update writers will “get back to work,” and offer our perspective on the important policy matters of the days, weeks and months to come. One of the great honors of working in Washington, with offices just a block away from the Capitol building, is being afforded the opportunity to interact with a den of heroes and servants.
