THE WORLD CAN NOT AFFORD A NUCLEAR IRAN

Urgent actions you can take today:

We are recommending two actions you can take today regarding the important Senate Iran Nuclear Deal Vote. Both of these actions are being recommended by AIPAC are listed below.

  1. Urge Senators to Allow a Vote on the Resolution of Disapproval
  2. Urge your House representative to vote against the resolution of approval.

Over the past two months, as lawmakers reviewed the proposed nuclear deal with Iran, our message to Congress has been clear: The United States must do better. We need a better deal.

We believe that Congress must oppose this dangerous deal because it leaves Iran as a nuclear threshold state, jeopardizes U.S. interests, and poses an existential threat to Israel and other American allies.

Thanks to your unrelenting energy and commitment to this cause, you helped mount an unprecedented campaign and build a national movement to reach a bipartisan rejection of the deal in Congress.

Please take two critical actions today:

In the Senate: There is an active effort to filibuster and block a final vote on the Iranian nuclear deal. The only way to end debate and proceed to a vote is to have 60 senators vote to invoke cloture. If the cloture vote to end debate fails today, the Senate will not be able to vote directly on the Iran nuclear agreement.

Please contact your senators today. Urge them to vote for cloture and allow a vote on the resolution of disapproval on the Iranian nuclear deal. Please click here.

In the House: Tomorrow, a critical moment will take place when the House of Representatives votes on the Iran deal. That vote will now be on a resolution of approval supporting the Iran agreement, so members opposing the deal will vote against the resolution.

A bipartisan majority in Congress has already announced its opposition to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran, and that rejection will be registered by the House when members vote to oppose the resolution of approval tomorrow.

Please click here and urge your House representative to vote against the resolution of approval.

Ensuring the largest possible bipartisan rejection of this agreement will establish the strongest foundation for the Iran policy debate still ahead.

The current nuclear deal:

The deal in its current form only delays Iranís pursuit of nuclear weapons and allows it to continue to promote violence, terrorism and instability in the region and around the world.

We insist that the administration be vigilant in enforcing all aspects of the deal including making public all undisclosed side agreements between the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) and Iran.

Although it is certain that the deal will go into effect, there are still legislative options that can be taken to strengthen the deal.

First, we must insist that every Presidential candidate pledge to renegotiate the deal by including the following five points.

1. Demand the dismantling of centrifuges in all Iranian nuclear facilities. The proposed deal would disconnect and store centrifuges in an easily reversible manner, but it requires no dismantlement of centrifuges or any Iranian nuclear facility.

2. Include anywhere, anytime, short-notice inspections. The current agreement gives Iran up to 24 days to deceive, delay, and hide.

3. Release sanctions gradually as Iran demonstrates full cooperation, satisfying International Atomic Energy Agency concerns over the possible military dimensions of Tehran's program. The current agreement gives $150 billion and lifts sanctions as soon as the agreement commences, rather than gradually in phases as Iran demonstrates sustained adherence to the agreement.

4. Block Iran's nuclear weapons quest for generations. The current agreement permits Iran to legally acquire nuclear weapons in 15 years. A child born today would live in a world where the greatest terror sponsors, who want to annihilate the United States, also have the most powerful weapons and delivery systems to achieve their goals.

5. Prevent Iran from obtaining ballistic missiles and do not lift the arms embargo imposed by the UN Security Council, which will allow Iran to provide additional arms for terrorism and proxy wars, which inflame the region and threaten our allies.

This battle to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons is not over. There is still legislation that can be passed by Congress that will strengthen the deal.

We expect that members of the House and Senate will be introducing bills to keep sanctions in force and strengthen them.

Here are some examples of future legislation:

The Kirk-Menendez bill should be reauthorized for another 10 years. Congressman Royce and also Congressman Pompeo will be introducing a series of sanctions bills which we must support.

At the appropriate time we will send you an action alert with details on how you can help pass this crucial legislation.

Finally, there are 30 states that have sanction legislation on the books. We will be asking you to take action to insure these remain active and that the other states will adopt similar legislation.

Please continue to check our website and read our action alerts for further information about the above.

You can still make a difference in stopping Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.
