America Withdraws the Disastrous Iran Nuclear Deal

By ACLJ.org1544024152532

This is the latest installment in a year-end series looking back at some of the numerous victories by the ACLJ in 2018.

After years of tirelessly advocating for a withdrawal from the Iran Nuclear Deal – a deal the ACLJ outlined from the start would be a disaster – we saw massive steps forward this year, including new sanctions on the state sponsor of terror.

In a major victory for America, President Trump, true to his word, has officially withdrawn the United States from what he accurately called the “defective at its core” Iran nuclear deal. Further, the President ordered that sanctions on Iran be re-imposed.

Iran has lied over and again about their true intentions for their nuclear program – to destroy Israel, and any other nation they see as an enemy.

Iran practically broadcast their plans – including their first intended target – to the world when they tested ballistic missiles with the words “Israel must be destroyed” emblazoned on the sides. Iran’s leaders have repeatedly made clear that their ultimate goal is “death to America.”

Iran clearly has every intention of developing a nuclear arsenal and the nuclear deal brokered by former Secretary of State John Kerry and implemented by President Obama did nothing to stop them, in fact it accelerated the problem.

The ACLJ contended from the very start that the nuclear deal as it stood profited Iran and hurt the rest of the world.  Worst of all, it put our ally Israel and its people in grave danger.

We argued time and time again that this deal needed to be fixed to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear threat, with stronger provisions in place to hold them to their word.

Otherwise the U.S. had no choice but to abandon it altogether. The President correctly made the bold decision to pull out and send a strong message that the U.S. will not be blackmailed.

The U.S. will not tolerate threats to Israel or our other Arab allies. We will not allow the proliferation of nuclear weapons. We will demand they be fully transparent and allow external inspectors in their country – not simply self-report – or there will be harsh penalties.

The ball is in Iran’s court. If Iran truly wants a deal, they will return to the table and start at zero, crafting a new deal that benefits everyone, not just Iran. We will continue working to ensure that Iran is never allowed to destroy Israel or threaten America with nuclear weapons.
