JCRC welcomes the overwhelming bipartisan passage by the United States Senate of the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015. We thank Senator Warren and Senator Markey for supporting this important legislation.
Iran continues to be a state sponsor of terrorism and a destabilizing threat to the entire region. A nuclear capable Iran poses a threat to the security and interests of United States and to our allies, including Israel. The organized Jewish community of Boston believes that a diplomatic resolution is the ideal path to end the threat of Iran becoming a nuclear power. We believe that this legislation provides Congress with an opportunity to assert an appropriate role in this vital foreign policy matter.
We urge Massachusetts’ Representatives in Congress to work toward speedy action on this bill and to support passage of the legislation in the House without amendments.
