Take a Breath

Last night's Stop Iran Now rally in front of Senator Schumer & Gillibrand's offices went off without a hitch. The evening was filled with Inspirational speakers, and the NYPD informed rally organizers that 7,000 people were in attendance, making this the largest rally ever in front of a senator's office. Kudos to the ZOA and others who helped organize and run the event. Hope was in the air as speaker after speaker highlighted the dangers of the deal, yet cautioned against defeatism. Retired Senator Joe Lieberman stated that even if Obama got the votes to override a Senate veto, the battle would not be lost, and we should certainly stay true to the cause.

Today, of course, we read that Obama got the votes; 34 was his magic number and he reached it. A short while ago we heard that even 'friend of Israel', Hakeem Jeffries, who was originally leaning against the deal, will support it and not vote to override. Hakeem Jeffries Says He Supports the Iran Nuclear Deal

Who knows how many more will unfortunately join the rolling snowball. Yet, as Lieberman cautioned, a lot can happen between now and the vote in Congress, so we should continue opposing the deal and certainly not give up.

It is time to take a breath and follow Senator Lieberman's sound advice. Please reference AFSI's Calendar of Events below for a list of Stop Iran Now rallies, marches and speaking events during this and next week (Apologies if we omitted an event that you are aware of; if so, please contact us.)
