When crises break out in the Middle East, the U.S. too often turns to violence first. FCNL lobbies for nonviolent engagement in the Middle East to prevent, de-escalate and resolve longstanding conflicts. Political grievances contribute to instability and violence, so lasting peace in the region will require engagement with all stakeholders.

Press Release Trump's Refusal to Certify Iran Deal Sets Path for War 

FCNL condemns the Trump administration’s decertification on the Iran deal and the Cotton-Corker legislation that risks sabotaging this historic agreement. The Quaker lobby, which has been a leading voice advocating for diplomacy with Iran in Washington, calls on Congress to reject Trump’s dangerous bid to extort our negotiating partners to submit to ultimatums on the deal which risk its collapse and putting the United States on a path towards full-fledged war with Iran.

Legislative Ask Oppose Corker-Cotton bill to undermine Iran deal  

President Trump's disastrous decision to withhold certification to Congress on the Iran deal puts our country on a collision course that risks war with Iran. Congress should stabilize the deal, not undermine it with the Corker-Cotton legislation and other efforts that will pave the path for war. Congress must save the Iran deal and stand up for diplomacy.
