Your senators are considering new sanctions legislation that would put the Iran nuclear deal in jeopardy and risk putting the U.S. on path toward war with Iran.
The legislation would direct the President to impose new sanctions that would undermine the Iran deal. Just as dangerous, the bill would add more barriers to diplomatic contact between the U.S. and Iranian military, which U.S. military leaders have opposed.
On March 27, more than 10,000 citizen advocates with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) will be on Capitol Hill lobbying in support of this legislation. That is why it is particularly important that Congress also hears from you and the broader pro-peace constituency opposed to this bill.
The Iran deal has already made the world a safer place by guarding against a nuclear-armed Iran and another Iran and yet another U.S. war in the Middle East. With the U.S. continuing to escalate in Syria, Iraq, and Yemen, there is all the more risk for the U.S. and Iranian forces to clash and for confrontation to spin out of control, and this anti-diplomacy legislation makes that all the more likely.
For more about this legislation, and the military leaders who have opposed this dangerous step of designating Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization and the barriers to diplomacy it would create, see our bill explainer.
