Thousands of protesters flooded Times Square on July 22, 2015 to rally against President Obama’s controversial Iran nuclear arms deal. The rally is specifically aimed at urging Senator Chuck Schumer to rally Democratic opposition against the deal in Congress. “New York Senator Charles Schumer has the votes as presumptive leader to override this deal if he wants,” says Jeff Wiesenfeld, one of the group’s organizers. “If this deal is not stopped, New York voters will know whom to blame.”
The Hill Reports Lieberman: Schumer is key to blocking nuclear deal.
Former Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) is pressuring a top Senate Democrat to buck the Obama administration on its Iran nuclear deal to ensure a safer future for Israel.
Lieberman, the Senate’s first Orthodox Jew, blasted the agreement with Iran on “The Cats Roundtable” with host John Catsimatidis on New York’s AM 970.
He said the deal could be effectively blocked with the help of Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.).
“I think it opens the way for a lot of other Democrats to oppose it as well,” Lieberman said of his longtime colleague, who is also Jewish. “Chuck is the key.”
Schumer, who is likely to become the Senate’s next top Democrat, faces a major dilemma over the nuclear deal. He is both a key ally to both Israel and the White House, facing pressure from both sides on the deal.
Lieberman blasted White House negotiators for a deal that he said would allow Iran to ignore U.S. demands and instead support its own regional allies, which he described as “terrorist.”
“How can you make a deal with somebody who says they want to kill you?” Lieberman asked, reiterating the stance of Israeli leaders and its supporters who oppose the deal. “Pretty impossible in my opinion.”
Iran’s Khamenei hails his people for demanding death to America and Israel. Times of Israel - July 18, 2015. Iran’s supreme leader on Saturday hailed the Iranian masses for demanding the destruction of Israel and America, and said he hoped that God would answer their prayers.
In a viciously anti-US speech delivered in Tehran four days after Iran and the world powers signed an accord designed to thwart Iran’s nuclear program, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei praised “the slogans of the people of Iran” which “indicated what directions they’re heading for,” according to the English translation of his speech by Iran’s Press TV.
At Al-Quds day rallies last week, Khamenei noted appreciatively, “You heard ‘Death to Israel’, ‘Death to the US.’ You could hear it. The whole nation was shaken by these slogans. It wasn’t only confined to Tehran. The whole of the nation, you could hear, that was covered by this great movement. So we ask Almighty God to accept these prayers by the people of Iran.”
Here are three key points to consider regarding Obama's Iran Deal:
The Iran deal does not permit anytime, anywhere inspections of Iran’s military facilities.
The Iran deal lifts the ban on other countries sending Iran conventional weapons in five years and intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of hitting the United States in eight years.
The Iran deal, valued at $150 billion, is worth more than all the U.S. aid to Israel since 1948. $150 billion would go to a single regime that has been a state sponsor of terrorism for the entire 36 years of its existence.
The deal does not prevent a nuclear Iran. It paves the way for the largest state sponsor of terrorism to obtain nuclear weapons and become a major military power.
Senator Chuck Schumer opposing the Iran deal and successfully preventing its implementation would make him a true American and Israeli hero. He would be taking a principled stand for the national security of Israel and America over succumbing to partisan politics and strong "friendly fire" from fellow democrats. He would be a hero in every sense of the word.
