Keep Lobbying on Iran

Despite President Obama having secured a veto-proof Iran deal, it is still vital to weaken the deal's political support as much as possible.  Keep lobbying!
Next Steps for Iran Deal Opponents - Rebecca Shimoni Stoil

AIPAC President Robert A. Cohen said, "The battle to prevent a nuclear-capable Iran is far from over....[e]nsuring the largest possible bipartisan rejection of this agreement will establish the strongest possible foundation for the Iran policy debate still to come, and will ensure a robust congressional role in that process."

AIPAC spokesman Marshall Wittmann emphasized that "a bipartisan majority of the American people join the bipartisan congressional majority that will soon vote to reject this deal. We believe that this strong opposition conveys an important message to the world...about the severe doubts in America concerning Iran's willingness to meet its commitments and the long-term viability of this agreement."

Mark Dubowitz, executive director of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, said that for the Iran deal's opponents, "the next steps are to convert the 60% bipartisan rejection of this deal by Congress and the deep anguish that many congressional supporters of the deal are experiencing into bipartisan legislation to target the Revolutionary Guards for its support for terrorism and regional violence."
