Bad Deal


President Obama’s deal with Iran would be a disaster. Not only would it allow Iran to get a nuclear bomb, it would ignite more Iranian aggression throughout the Middle East.

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said on Syrian TV that his forces are ready for war with Israel, and the deal would allow for a “stronger and wealthier Iran” regime that will “stand by its allies [Hezbollah], and especially the Palestinian resistance [Hamas], more than any time in history.”

Over the weekend, Iran sent millions of dollars into Gaza to help remake underground tunnels and restore missile stockpiles. Furthermore, Iran’s FARS news agency is reporting that Iran will begin using its newest and fastest centrifuges on the day the deal takes effect.

Who is looking out for Israel, America, and the world? Not our president. Congress must get involved.
