Don’t Let Netanyahu & Friends Abort an Iran Deal
An historic deal with Iran is within reach – one that would be good for the U.S., Israel, and the world. Don’t let Netanyahu and his alarmist allies abort a deal before it is even born. Reject new Iran sanctions! Reject new legislation that could undermine an agreement!
Why is this important?
In recent weeks, attention has focused on the outrage surrounding Netanyahu’s March 3rd speech to Congress, and House Speaker Boehner's invitation to Netanyahu. After Netanyahu's speech, focus must revert to the real issues: Iran negotiations, deal or no deal, peace or war. Prime Minister Netanyahu has made clear that any viable, reasonable deal – a deal that both Iran could accept and one that meets the red lines of the P5+1 negotiators – would never reach his standard. With the deadline for a framework agreement with Iran approaching (March 23rd) and with AIPAC getting into gear, pressure is mounting on members of Congress to proceed with new legislation – sanctions and other initiatives – that could kill a deal before it is reached or render any deal dead on arrival.
