Tell your senators to oppose legislation that could block a deal
A congressional vote to reject the deal before it has a chance to
work would be devastating. If Congress rejects a deal, it would
flagrantly violate the commitments U.S. negotiators have made. Iran
could respond by withdrawing from the agreement and restarting
elements of its nuclear program that are now rolled back under the
interim deal. The best way to prevent a nuclear armed Iran
is to negotiate and let a good deal work.

The US government has enabled the large-scale violation of
Palestinian human rights through decades of unconditional military,
economic, and diplomatic support. This approach has failed in every
way and has led to deaths, suffering and insecurity primarily for
Palestinians, but also for Israelis and others around the world....

We support President Obama and members of Congress who oppose
the Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act. Those who support the act should
pair it with a Nuclear Weapon Free Israel Act
with the same sanctions to be applied to Israel as to Iran if it
does not comply equally with the same constraints on its nuclear
program. The US must be consistent in its foreign policy and hold
all nations to the same standard.
The best solution is a nuclear weapons free Middle East and a
nuclear weapons free world.

Petition Senator Reid: No to S 1881
Senators Kirk, Schumer, and Menendez have sponsored an AIPAC-written
bill S. 1881 that will impose new sanctions on Iran. The Administration
has said this bill will kill diplomacy with Iran and President Obama has
called it a "march to war" since it will effectively end nuclear talks.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid can stop this bill by not allowing it
to come up for a vote. Don't undermine this golden chance for diplomacy
to work; ask Senate Majority Leader Reid to keep the bill off the floor.
