Urgent Action: Tell the House, "No New Iran Sanctions, Support Diplomacy"

 In Congress, Iran, Nuclear, Peace Action, Uncategorized
Last week, we asked you to contact the Senate to oppose new economic sanctions on Iran, which could scuttle the promising nuclear deal and lead to the unthinkable, another Middle East war. The good news is the bill, S. 1881 sponsored by Senators Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and Mark Kirk (R-IL), is not moving forward to a vote in the Senate, even though it has 59 co-sponsors. Your calls have made a difference; White House and Senate staffers have expressed appreciation for our grassroots pressure (so don’t let anyone tell you your voice doesn’t count anymore in Washington!).

Unfortunately (but as we suspected), the Republican House leadership is considering a vote to pass the Senate sanctions bill’s language. We need to head this off with a nonviolent “pre-emptive strike” on the House!

Please call your U.S. Representative now at 855-68-NO-WAR (855-686-6927)* and tell her or him no new Iran sanctions, don’t undermine diplomacy.

You can reference the Menendez (D-NJ) – Kirk (R-IL) Senate bill, that you don’t want that language passed in the House, but it’s not necessary. You can just tell your Representative you want no new sanctions on Iran. The U.S. and its allies agreed not to sanction Iran further while negotiations over its nuclear program are ongoing, so Congress should stay out of this and support diplomacy. It’s that simple.

Humbly for Peace,

Kevin Martin
Executive Director
Peace Action

P.S. I’m sure you are busy, but one phone call to your Representative, toll-free, at 855-68-NO-WAR (855-686-6927)* telling her or him to give diplomacy a chance and oppose any new sanctions on Iran, will make a huge difference, as it already has!

    From your America community organizer, if the Senate add new sanctions to Iran it will only make them angry
    let us stay with what we have in place,if you do not believe me look at the people in Iraq, thay are starting a civil War the key word no new sanctions on Iran

  • scatterwisdom

    What proponents for this accord should do is agree to make a united statement that if no agreement is made or Iran turns out to be proven to have broken thier promise, that all sanctions will be reinstated.

    Is Change possible in Israel?

    To change Israel we need to change things in Washington DC.
    USA foreign policies: No more foreign aid to Israel, no more trade agreements, no more fighting
    their wars, no more AIPAC/J-Street lobbies, registered as American instead of foreign.
    No more veto’s of UN sanctions on Israel. (67 of them to date) No more duel citizenship candidates in any USA government position.
    Audit the fed, Follow all campaign contributions made by Zionist.
    Break-up their monopoly & control of media. Remove all mossad from our agencies, Home-land
    Security and pentagon.
    Let Israel know that non compliance with international law, WILL result in sanctions and military might as well as any other terrorist regime.
    We need to insist on inspections of their nuclear weapons, sign a non-proliferation agreement,
    the same as Iran has agreed to.
    It is little wonder that Israeli spy Arnon Milchan is now so openly boasting about his years spent pilfering American nuclear weapons technology.
    President Johnson gave Israel 200-300 war heads shortly after taking office, and the assassination of President Kennedy. President Kennedy had denied such.

    Moreland Commission:

    On July 2, 2013, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo appointed the “Commission to Investigate Public Corruption” under the Moreland Act and Executive Law Section 63(8) to probe systemic corruption and the appearance of such corruption in state government, political campaigns and elections in New York State.

    Only one other Governor has shown an interest in going after the corruption of public officials. Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana. We thank him for such. We find IT appalling, not one Senator, congressman, staffer, President, media personality, past or present have come forward regarding
    the corruption with-in our government. ALL certainly do have knowledge of it. WHY NOT? Is it the fear of? Or their involvement with it? That being the
    Syndicate of AIPAC, Mossad, Israel, now chartered in all 50 States. They are involved with local, State, and Federal elections. Representatives
    head the Home Land Security ORGANIZATION, members are appointed with in all of our government agencies including the pentagon, and our Presidents Cabinet. Known for their retaliation against any opposition to their agenda.


    Jews Against Zionism !!

    Jews Against Zionism is a group for Jews and others opposed to the Zionist movement and ideology, and to its impact on both Palestinians and Jews. This is not a religious group, not a racist hate group, and not a conspiracy-theory group. JAZ is a political group, committed to coexistence between Palestinians and Israeli Jews.

    We believe that the conflict in Palestine cannot be resolved without a return of Palestinian refugees and dismantlement of the Zionist structure of the state of Israel – and that this is impossible in the context of two states and a re-partition of Palestine. We advocate the only approach which can lead to peace with justice in the region: we call for a unitary, secular and democratic Palestine, the return of Palestinian refugees, and full and equal rights for Palestinians, Israeli Jews, and all other people living in the whole of Palestine.
