URGENT ACTION ALERT: Call your Senators & Congressmen NOW!

Please call your Senators and Congressmen and ask them to vote against this disastrous deal! Use these five facts to express your concerns about the deal!

This proposed nuclear deal with Iran is a danger to the United States and our allies, and to our children and grandchildren.

The Capitol Hill Switchboard number: 202.224.3121

Five Most Dangerous Aspects of the Iranian Nuclear Deal

  • This deal actually gives international consent to Iran from the community of nations to build a nuclear bomb in a mere 15 years.Despite being promised several times by the Obama administration that “Iran must not get a nuclear bomb.” And that is assuming that they do not cheat. Given that all restrictions from the international community will be lifted after 15 years, Iran will then have the ability to produce a bomb within days.
  • Iran does not have to come clean about the past military dimensions of its nuclear program.Despite being promised by the Obama administration that “Iran must come clean about its past military dimensions”, this is not even part of the agreement. In fact, they now have been given present and future military dimensions by giving them the consent to purchase intercontinental ballistic missiles. Please note that the Iranians do not need intercontinental ballistic missiles to reach Tel Aviv or Riyadh, but they do need them to reach Western Europe and the continental United States.
  •  Iran is the world’s leading state sponsor of Islamic terrorism. They will be getting a huge influx of at least 150 billon dollars in sanctions relief.This relief was supposed to have been gotten in compliance with the agreement. This relinquishes any sort of leverage we might have on Iran. Even if just a fraction of 150 billion dollars goes towards terrorism, a fraction of 150 billion dollars is a great deal of money, and can do an enormous amount of damage.
  •  The IAEA will have to go through a bureaucratic process and apply to a committee, on which Iran sits, to get permission to inspect a site. And then, Iran has up to 24 days to clean up the site.Despite being told that the International Atomic Energy Administration (IAEA) will have “anytime/anywhere” inspections. Olli Heinonen, Former Director of the IAEA said that most nuclear sites could be totally cleaned up within 24 days.
  • The P5 plus 1 nations, of which the United States is a part, are supposed to cooperate, in terms of training courses and workshops to protect against threats to their nuclear facilities.This includes non-military threats, such as Stuxnet. In other words, if in the future either the United States, Saudi Arabia or Israel learn of an impending attack and try to prevent it by means of a computer virus, we are supposed to now train them on how to prevent their facilities from contracting that virus.

Urgent Action Alert: Call Your Senators TODAY to Ensure Congressional Review of any Nuclear Deal with the Iranian Regime

Urgent Action Alert: Call Your Senators TODAY to Ensure Congressional Review of any Nuclear Deal with the Iranian Regime

As you may be aware, this week S. 615 (AKA the ‘Corker-Menendez’ bill) will be going in to markup, a crucial next step in the process for this key piece of legislation. The purpose of Corker-Menendez is simple: to allow Congress to have a say in whatever final deal the P5+1 talks with Iran produces by allowing Congress to review the deal before it goes into effect. The spirit of this legislation is completely in line with the priority our Constitution puts on checks and balances. This is why it is crucial you contact your Senators and let them know you want them to support this bill.

Action Alert: Call your Senators NOW!

URGENT: Action Alert – Call your Senators NOW to Ensure that Congress Weighs in on the Nuclear Agreement with Iran!

The Corker-Menendez Iranian Nuclear Agreement Review Act (S.615) is the only way to avoid the Obama administration from precipitously signing onto an agreement with the Islamic Republic of Iran without the appropriate congressional oversight that the founders of the Constitution knew would be necessary for arms control agreements and treaties. On such a critical role of importance to American national security as well as to that of the region, and the balance of nuclear power in the world, it is necessary for Congress to be able to weigh in.

The Act will enable Congress to review and vote on the Iranian nuclear deal that the Obama Administration is bent on signing this month.  The Act will likely be voted on next week. We need enough votes to over-ride a Presidential veto. Please flood your Senators with phone calls asking them to sign onto S.615 the Iranian Nuclear Agreement Review Act.

You may find your Senators by state here or call the switch board at 202-224-3121

Please send this out to all of your friends and colleagues.

Here is a sample script “Hi may name is X calling from X State to ask that (my Senator) sign onto S.615 the Iranian Nuclear Agreement Review Act. The bill will ensure that Congress reviews any nuclear agreement with Iran.  If the Senator has already co-sponsored S. 615, thank you. If the Senator has not co-sponsored this bill, I ask that he/she does, to ensure that his/her voice is heard.”

Action Alert: Let Israeli PM Netanyahu’s Voice Be Heard

As you are well aware, the Iranian nuclear program is a massive threat to US and European interests and an existential threat to our ally Israel. That being said, it is Israel that is first in the line of fire of any potential Iranian nuclear weapons, yet the Israelis have not been able to have their voice heard, and were not even invited to participate in the P5+1 talks. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, as the duly elected leader of the people of Israel, should be provided an opportunity to have his voice heard by Israel’s chief ally, the United States. The primary and fundamental responsibility of any national leader is to provide for the survival and security of his citizens. The Prime Minister should be afforded the same respect and dignity that any of our other allies would be given and have historically been provided. Please call your representatives in Congress today to ensure that they attend the Prime Minister’s speech on March 3rd

Action Alert: Call the White House to Help Israel Now!

 Call the White House to Demand that Israel Not be Held to a Double Standard

Israel is under constant attack by rockets fired from Hamas terrorists in Gaza. But just last week, it was confirmed by the US and Israel that the Obama Administration had blocked the transfer of Hellfire missiles that Israel needs. The missiles were a pre-approved shipment of arms. The process of transferring the missiles was completely in line with the policies of the US Department of Defense, and did not require the approval of the President. But the White House and State Department prevented the automatic resupply of weapons to Israel.

Please call the White House now to tell the President that Israel cannot be held to a double standard, and that the process for weapons transfers to Israel must be returned to its normal procedures. The White House switch board phone number is 202-456-1111. The White House comments line is open from 9am-4pm ET, Monday – Friday. Every phone call makes a difference. Please flood the White House with your calls now.

Here’s a sample script: “Hi, my name is X calling from X city, asking that President Obama allow for the routine transfer of ammunition to Israel. Israel has a right and responsibility to defend itself, according to United Nations Article 51. It is unconceivable for the United States to treat our one democratic ally in the Middle East as if it is on par with a terrorist organization. By scrutinizing arms transfers to Israel, the Administration is jeopardizing the longstanding US-Israel military relationship.”

Action Alert: Demand Congress Punish Terrorists

On Monday, June 30, 2014, the bodies of the three innocent teenage boys, Gilad Shaar, Naftali Frankel and Eyal Yifrach, who were kidnapped in Israel on their way home from school by Palestinian terrorists, were found. Naftali Frenkel was an American citizen. He is the 58th American citizen to be killed by Palestinian terrorists in Israel since the signing of the Oslo Accords in 1993.

However, the Department of Justice has never indicted, extradited, or prosecuted a single Arab Palestinian terrorist who has harmed an American within Israel or the Palestinian territories.

Please call your member of Congress to demand that Congressional hearings be held to force the Justice Department to punish these Palestinian terrorists with American blood on their hands. Every phone call makes a difference. Please flood the House and Senate with your calls now.

Here’s a sample script: “Hi, my name is X, calling from X city, asking that (my Congressman/Senator) demand Congressional hearings to force the Justice Department to legally prosecute these Palestinian terrorists with America blood on their hands. American law gives the DOJ the legal tools to go after these Palestinian terrorists. So why are they not doing it?”

Ask President Obama to Help Bring Back Our Boys!

On Thursday, June 12, 2014, three innocent teenage boys, Gilad Shaar, Naftali Frankel and Eyal Yifrach, were kidnapped in Israel on their way home from school by Palestinian terrorists. Naftali Frankel holds American citizenship, making this abduction a matter of immediate concern for the United States. Please call the White House to demand that President Obama  help secure the safe and speedy release of all three of the boys. The White House switch board phone number is 202-456-1111. The White House comments line is open from 9am-4pm ET, Monday-Friday. Every phone call makes a difference. Please flood the White House with your calls now.

Here’s a sample script: “Hi, my name is X, calling from X city, asking that President Obama do all he can to help with the release of the three innocent Israeli teenage boys. Has the President called Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas to demand their release from Hamas? Has the President demanded that the PA dissolve its unity government with Hamas, as long as they continue kidnapping innocent people? If not, what does the President plan to do to help our closet ally in the Middle East – Israel – in recovering the three teenagers, one of whom, Naftali Frenkel, is an American citizen?”
