Urge Congress to Support Comprehensive Iran Sanction Legislation

25Jun10

As the leading state sponsor of international terrorism, a nuclear-armed Iran would pose unacceptable threats to Israel, the United States and to the world. In the coming days, the House of Representatives and the United States Senate will address the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran by voting on comprehensive Iran sanctions. This bill would give President Obama the power to impose sanctions against companies that supply Iran with or support its domestic production of gasoline and other refined petroleum products.  By targeting Iran’s ongoing dependence on imported refined petroleum products, this legislation would seek to prevent Iran from acquiring the capabilities to produce nuclear weapons.  The United Nations Security Council and the European Union have both recently passed their own versions of Iran sanctions.

Please contact your members of Congress and encourage them to vote in favor of this bill and share this Advocacy Alert with your colleagues, friends and family members.  A suggested letter follows below. The letter can be used to contact your elected officials or local media, or as talking points for your bulletins, Facebook, Twitter, or other social media.

Dear Senator or Congressperson,

I write today to encourage you to vote in favor of comprehensive Iran sanctions legislation. Recently, the House of Representatives and the United States Senate took a significant step in addressing concerns about a nuclear armed Iran with its agreement on language for the comprehensive Iran Sanctions bill.  This legislation gives the President the power to impose sanctions against companies that supply Iran with or support its domestic production of gasoline and other refined petroleum products.  By targeting Iran’s ongoing dependence on imported refined petroleum products, it seeks to prevent Iran from acquiring the capabilities to produce nuclear weapons.  This legislation complements the repeated diplomatic efforts by the Obama Administration and other world leaders to get Iran to abandon its nuclear ambitions.

I encourage you to vote YES.

Thank You.

Please forward this message on to your friends, family, and contacts. Make sure to visit the Advocacy section of the Hadassah website for continuing updates and more information: http://www.hadassah.org/advocacy
