ACTION ALERT: Let Congress hear from you

 


Here are ways to voice your opinions about the Iran nuclear deal provided by The Israel Project, StandWithUs and Zionistas AIPAC Action Alert.

After 20 months of negotiations the United States and its negotiating partners announced a nuclear agreement with Iran. Throughout the negotiations, AIPAC outlined five critical criteria for a good deal. Unfortunately, the proposed agreement is fundamentally flawed in each of these vital areas.

The Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015 established a procedure for congressional review of any nuclear agreement with Iran. Congress must now oppose this deal, which would leave Iran as a nuclear threshold state, thereby jeopardizing U.S. interests and posing an existential threat to Israel and other American allies.

The Israel Project is also encouraging Americans to fight back. Congress is the last barrier protecting America and our allies from this bad deal that gives Iran the bomb.

Points The Israel Project makes include:

• Iran gets to keep researching centrifuges that could be used to make the materials for nuclear bombs.

• Iran gets to keep all of its nuclear sites.

• Iran gets $150 billion—money it can use to keep funding terrorists across the world.

• Iran gets to be involved in choosing when and where nuclear inspectors are allowed to go.

• Iran gets to block inspections for weeks at a time. There are no anytime/anywhere inspections.

• Iran gets to build, import, and export ICBMS (intercontinental ballistic missile) it could use to attack America.

• Iran gets to buy conventional weapons on the open market again.

Therefore, please take the time to urge members of Congress to oppose the nuclear agreement with Iran.

You can call 202-225-3121 to reach Senate and House members through the Capitol switchboard or email your members of Congress.
