The US Senate received over 57,000 emails in 24 hours from people demanding congressional review of any nuclear deal with Iran, according to a statement from Christians United for Israel (CUFI) on Wednesday.

CUFI organized the grass roots email campaign in an effort to raise awareness about the lack of congressional involvement in the current negotiations with the Islamic Republic of Iran.

“Every major arms control agreement in recent history has been submitted to Congress for approval.  A deal with Iran should be no different,” said CUFI executive director David Brog.

The CUFI email campaign specifically voiced support for the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015 (S.615). This legislation, among other things, directs President Obama to promptly transmit the details of any Iranian nuclear deal to Congress. It further directs the Secretary of State to assess the feasibility of verifying Iran’s compliance with any such deal. The bill also limits the President’s ability to lift sanctions against Iran.

The Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act was sponsored by Senator Bob Corker (R-TN). A number of potential 2016 presidential candidates have joined Corker as co-sponsors, including Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC), Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), and Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL).

CUFI says that it has 2 million members, and is the largest pro-Israel organization in the United States.

    I guest the congress should just impeach OBAMA if he continue to act tyrannical.

    The Dems/Obama are trying to eat the cake and leave it whole

    In order to avoid Congress scrutiny of what is widely believed to be a bad deal pending (a remaining, robust enrichment capability, The sunset clause, the pending deal totally ignoring all military aspects of the Iranian program and Iran’s acute destabilizing role in the ME), Obama chose to use the sole-executive agreement route which is NOT legally binding!

    Had Obama consulted with Congress and gone with the Treaty route, the agreement WOULD be binding!

    Obama wants to block the representatives of more then 200 million Americans from conducting their legally binding supervisory role in a matter of critical importance to the national security of the US, this type of behavior is the hallmark of despotism…

    The 47 Senators just let Iran know were they stand…

    The Democrats accusing the GOP Senators of treason, are hysterically trying to defend a loosing cause with blistering, unadulterated demagoguery

    IF CUFI IS THE LARGEST PRO-ISRAEL ORGANIZATION,THEY SHOULD PROVE IT BY DEMANDING JONATHAN POLLARD BE RELEASED IMMEDIATELY TO AN ISRAELI HOSPITAL FOR DEBILITATING HEALTH PROBLEMS DUE TO EXCESSIVE INCARCERATION OF 30 YEARS & NO END IN SIGHT FOR A CRIME THAT GETS 0-4 YEARS.THIS BLIGHT ON AMERICA HAS FINALLY BEEN PROVEN A SHAM.DEMANDING HIS IMMEDIATE RELEASE ON HUMANITARIAN GROUNDS WOULD REINSTATE WORLD RESPECT FOR AMERICA,ONCE A SHINING BEACON OF CHRISTIAN VALUES.

  • Robert Davis

    I am glad to hear that and grateful to CUFI. GOOD JOB!

    This is a no brainer. The Congress should be involved in the negotiations. It’s too important for the President, who has displayed poor judgment so far as understanding Israel’s discomfort with his latest decisions.

    Obama acts out of weakness, unbefitting the dignity and honor of the United States. We knoow he feels weak by his actions: hostility to those who disagree with him, his secrecy, his angst with the proposition that Congress, the people’s representative body should have input to what Obama is committing the US, his nastiness and short temper, his vindictive acts against people such as Senator Menendez of New Jersey. Perhaps the Senator is guilty and maybe not, but suspicion is raised That the time line is certainly convenient. It is also suspicious that Holder, the Attorney General, who is usually very slow to do something, is suddenly anxious to sign off on the prosecution of the Senator. To paraphrase Shakespeare, something stinks in the United SStates.

    Great to hear ! Hope it’s woken some people up!

    The “47” save the butts of the Pr. the American people and put Iran on notice. Get serious guys or …!

  • Time Obama was removed, this President is worse than useless. Too young and inexperienced for International Politics. Further more this is not the time for petty politics but a time to deal with the whole issue of the Islamic crisis world wide. Just caught news today — Iran banning birth control and demanding increase in population. Sure all remember Gadaffi’s madness about infiltrating the world with Islamic religion and Sharia Law via population 1 man x 4 wives & umpteen brats.Ttrained from age 7 in terrorism! Fifteen years from now what have we got? Are we going to allow Islam to take us back to the 7th Century with the added spice of nuclear power?

    There is nothing like singing Hatikva with a thousand Christian friends at a CUFI Night to Honor Israel.

    What CUFI is doing is very commendable, There is one problem do the elections in Israel. It don’t know what policies CUFI has on the parties in Israel and witch way there politics lean to. One fact evry one does not mention is the attitude of the Congress and the Senate after the elections. The two groups like Mr. Netanyahu to win because of his strong leadership and anderstanding of the Israelie and the midleeast. The other two incubands dont come close to his knowledge.
    That would creat a big problem for the two groups. Is hertsog and Livni ready i dond think so. Obama will skwise them to give away what ever he dicides to. So G-d help us.

  • A nuclear-armed Iran puts the whole world in danger.
    Nuclear-armed jihadi terrorists are the greatest threat our civilization may ever face.

    Bibi’s address to a joint session of the US Congress this week 3.3.2015 was appropriate and necessary. There are some who have ears but they do not hear and eyes but could not see. Such people said and asserted that Bibi said “nothing new”. There is an adage which says “a dog that is destined to get lost will not hear the hunter’s whistle”. Majority of Americans heard the whistle, loud and clear on Tuesday, when Benjamin Netanyahu delivered his speech about terrorist Iran’s acquiring nuclear capabilities is a threat to the world at large.
    We must learn to face reality and not delude ourselves to wishful thinking.
    Iran the destabilizing factor in the Middle East and beyond..
    The PM stated the greatest dangers facing our world is the marriage of militant Islam with nuclear weapons.”
    A nuclear-armed Iran puts the whole world in danger.
    Nuclear-armed jihadi terrorists are the greatest threat our civilization may ever face.
    Radical Islam is not just a threat to American and Israel. It is a threat to Western Civilization everywhere. Unless the West wakes up now before it’s too late and stops this evil.
    Do you want prevent nuclear terror? Do you care about you children and your family’s future? Vote for nuclear free Iran.
    A terrorist state must not be permitted to possess nuclear capability.
    Iran already controls; Libya, Lebanon, Yemen, Iraq, Gaza, etc. how much more before we stop them from devouring the Middle East and more.
    When Israel takes defensive action for its survival. Israel would rather be condemned for its actions as a live Israel than eulogized as a dead Israel.
