Iran: Focus On The Comprehensive Agreement
Martin Raffel – November 26, 2013
What is the role of the Israel advocacy community in the months ahead? It is to explain to decision-makers and opinion-molders what is at stake here, not only for Israel and other allies in the region, but for U.S. national security interests. We must explain that, behind the smiles and handshakes with the smooth-talking Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif in Geneva, there remains a regime that represents the number one state sponsor of terror in the world, that incites to genocide against the Jewish people, abuses its own citizens’ rights and constantly seeks to undermine U.S. efforts to advance peace and stability in the Middle East.
