Jewish Voice for Peace: War on Iran

Ask 41 U.S. senators to stand strong and support diplomacy over war

As I write this, the U.S. Senate is just eight votes shy of a veto-proof bill that could send the U.S. to war over Iran.

This AIPAC-backed bill would torpedo ongoing diplomatic efforts and open the way to military action and further draconian sanctions. The results could be disastrous for everyone.

The good news is that outrage is growing, and 21 senators have come out against pro-war bill S.1881. But there is a chance it could reach a veto-proof majority. Unless we act now, the 20 senators who have not signed yet could succumb to the march to war. Can you sign this petition to tell them to stand strong ?

This legislation is being pushed by Israel lobby groups who want a pretext for Israel to take military action against Iran. Remarkably, it would pre-commit the United States to military involvement should Israel attack.

If we get at least 15,000 to sign this petition, we’ll take out ads in a major political news outlet to show that American Jews and our allies oppose the bill, and support diplomacy over war.

An interim deal brokered by the U.N. Security Council has already begun implementation, with Iran taking steps to roll back its nuclear program in exchange for limited sanctions relief.

But S.1881 (the "Nuclear Weapon-Free Iran Act of 2013") has the support of 59 of 60 co-sponsors needed for it to pass.
