Post #424 - It's All Connected

This letter was written by the principle organization working in the American Jewish community to seek a sustainable peace in the Middle East:

Alexander,

Ahmadinejad is on his way out.

Iran’s belligerent, anti-Semitic president will soon be replaced with Hassan Rouhani, who ran for and won the Iranian presidency on a platform of “constructive interaction with the outside world.”
The surprising election results present a new opportunity for serious diplomacy-- an opportunity a bipartisan group in Congress is today urging the President not to miss.

Ask Representative [name of my congressman] to join Representatives Charlie Dent (R-PA) and David Price (D-NC) in supporting a renewed diplomatic effort to resolve the nuclear crisis with Iran.

Let’s not be na├»ve. We don’t know if diplomacy will work. President-elect Rouhani too has sent mixed signals about Iran’s nuclear ambitions. And Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei remains in charge.

That's why meaningful sanctions remain in place and President Obama firmly states that “all options are on the table.”

But we’ll never know if diplomacy will work to ensure Iran does not get a nuclear weapon unless we seriously test Iranian intentions.

Ask Rep. [name] to stand with those who support a diplomatic resolution to the Iranian nuclear crisis by signing the Dent-Price letter today.

Thanks,

Dylan Williams
