NJDC Statement on Iran Agreement

Listed in: Other Foreign Policy, NJDC News, Press Releases

We share the concern of the world community over the trustworthiness of the Iranian government. In spite of universal condemnation and crippling sanctions, Iran has continued to pursue its nuclear weapons program. This interim agreement, reached as a result of the sanctions instituted with the leadership of the Obama administration and Congress, gives the world more access to Iran’s nuclear infrastructure and offers a time-limited opportunity for Iran to, hopefully, begin to show its good faith.

No one has more at stake in the outcome of this agreement than the State of Israel.  The record of President Obama in supporting Israel’s security concerns is stellar, according to the Israeli government itself. We have confidence that if Iran’s nuclear development is not stopped, that the President will stand with Israel in its self-defense and preventing a nuclear armed Iran.
