Time to fight vs the catastrophic Iran deal: lobbying Congressional Democrats with sample letters, how to find congress,
Time for action. We must stop this genocidal deal.!! Next 2 months are crucial are congress evaluates this deal
Every Israeli politician besides Arabs in the Knesset are horrified by this deal. Every major American Jewish organization besides traitors at JStreet (organized by Obama and funded by Iran and George Soros) oppose this deal.
We must focus on one goal: engaging and convincing members of the House and Senate to oppose this deal and ultimately seek a better one.
A congressional rejection of this bad agreement will require the passion and political activism of every one of us. This effort will demand unprecedented resources, energy and focus to engage our representatives in Washington and to articulate the grave consequences of accepting this deal.
Aipac and Cufi are leading the charge but all of us must help.
This will be difficult to do. Congress would have to override Obama’s veto of its resolution disapproving the nuclear pact. That would require at least 13 Senate Democrats and 44 House Democrats to side against their party’s leader, if all members voted and all Republicans backed an override. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker has said in recent weeks that it would be difficult to get enough votes for a veto override. Democratic Presidential candidate Jim Webb came out vs the deal today and so has Senator Menendez, despite being persecuted by Obama.
But we must try. The Torah forbids standing idly by while the blood of your neighbor is spilt. Never again must mean never again
Please take action today and everyday for the next 2 months, by contacting your members of Congress and urging them to oppose this unacceptable agreement.
If you know them personally, visit or call them.
If not, go to their local office and lobby.
Write a lot of letters.
Ok but not great-email them
The deal presented yesterday in Vienna falls short of its intentions to make the United States, Israel and our allies safer. In fact, we believe this agreement will do the opposite.
We can, and we must, do better. The fate of 7 million Jews in Israel, prevention of terrorism everywhere and ultimately the safety of the USA, depends on us!
Do you want your historical legacy to be one of a few Senators or Congressman who turned over billions to Iran so they could furnish Hamas with weapons to kill thousands of Jews, Christians, Muslims? Iran has painted a target on the back of every US soldier and killed 1000 already? You want to hand them $150 billion to kill more? You want to help them get ICBM's to launch nuks at USA? Anyone who supports this Iran bill will FOREVER be known as an appeaser of this worst nation on earth.
6 UNACCEPTABLE CONSEQUENCES of this deal Aipac points
The proposed deal with Iran fails to verifiably eliminate every Iranian pathway to a nuclear weapon.
It leaves Iran as a nuclear threshold state, jeopardizes U.S. interests, and poses an existential threat
to Israel and other American allies. Congress must oppose the proposed deal because it would:
1. LEGITIMIZE IRAN AS A NUCLEAR THRESHOLD STATE
With this agreement, the international community would withdraw its objections to Iran’s illicit nuclear activity over the
past two decades. Given the restrictions that would be lifted after 15 years, Iran would then have the ability to produce
enough fuel for a nuclear bomb within days.
2. RAISE THE PROSPECT OF WAR
Agreeing to this flawed plan of action effectively ends any hope of stopping Iran’s nuclear weapons program through
diplomacy. Furthermore, once Iran becomes a nuclear threshold state, there would be no peaceful way to stop Tehran
in time should it decide to build a nuclear weapon. The world would then either acquiesce to Iran obtaining a nuclear
weapon or resort to force to prevent that outcome. A deal that fails to stop Iran’s nuclear weapons quest would leave
the Middle East far less stable, potentially leading to devastating conflict.
3. SPUR A NUCLEAR ARMS RACE
Our Arab allies fear that a nuclear-capable Iran would become the dominant regional force. With Iran closing in on
nuclear threshold status, more than a dozen Arab states have expressed new interest in “peaceful” nuclear programs.
Such a deal would encourage nuclear proliferation in the world’s most unstable region and would mark the death knell
of the global non-proliferation regime and its cornerstone, the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
4. INCREASE IRANIAN SUPPORT OF TERRORISM
Iran is already the world’s most active state sponsor of terrorism, providing funds, arms and training to terror groups
such as Hamas and Hezbollah. The proposed deal provides Iran quick access to an estimated $150 billion locked in
Iranian accounts held abroad. If Tehran gains access to these funds – in addition to new foreign investment and oil
revenue – Iran would be able to increase exponentially its support for terrorism around the world.
5. STRENGTHEN THE IRANIAN REGIME
Iran’s ruling clerics hope that an Iranian nuclear weapons capability will further their regional ambitions. Iran already
actively foments unrest in Lebanon, Iraq, Gaza, Syria, and Yemen. Bolstered by new funding, international legitimacy,
additional arms from a phased out arms embargo, and the capacity to build nuclear weapons in 15 years, Iran would be
able to extend its regional influence and imperil U.S. interests.
6. UNDERMINE AND THREATEN REGIONAL ALLIES
The proposed deal falls short of Washington’s stated goals, calling into question America’s global leadership and its
commitment to allies. For more than 25 years, U.S. policy has been to cut off Iran’s path to a nuclear weapon and to
pressure Iran to comply with its international obligations. Under the proposed deal, the United States abandons those
objectives, severely damaging our credibility throughout the Middle East.
We need a much better deal. Bring Iran to its knees through tougher sanctions until they GIVE UP their nuclear program and terrorism.
