There is no issue more vital to America's national security today than the threat posed by Iran:
Iran has a nuclear weapons program in which it is enriching uranium in defiance of United Nations resolutions and in violation of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
Iran has long been acknowledged by the US State Department as the world's most active terrorist-sponsoring nation, providing support, training, financing and arms to multiple Jihadist organizations, including Hezbollah, HAMAS, Islamic Jihad, and even Al Qaeda.
Iran was implicated in providing arms to insurgents in Iraq who were battling American troops and has also been identified by US military intelligence as providing arms and assistance to the Taliban forces fighting against US troops in Afghanistan today.
Unfortunately, recent moves by the Obama administration have gone in the direction of easing the economic pressure on Iran by reducing sanctions.
This is a major mistake that will only serve to enrich the terrorist-sponsoring Ayatollahs in Tehran.
The Iranian regime has a long history of dishonesty. Why should America trust the ayatollahs now?
Further, why should we embolden a nation that has clearly articulated its desire to destroy Israel, our closest democratic ally in the Middle East? We should stand by Israel at all times, and the idea of any relaxed sanctions against the Iranian regime, be they temporary or permanent, should be considered an "historic mistake," as Israel's Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu has described them.
Delaying, relaxing, or removing strong sanctions against the Iranian regime will continue the growing perception that the U.S. has become a paper tiger and, further, it will place our most important ally in the Middle East, Israel, in grave danger.
That is exactly where you, ACT! for America's 270,000-strong members and supporters come in! You have the power to let our elected officials know that national security is important to taxpayers.
Elected officials on the state and federal level commonly tell us that they frequently hear from constituents on "pocketbook" issues but seldom hear from them on security issues, such as the threat of terrorism and nuclear proliferation.
Now is the time to tell your elected representatives in Congress that you want them to remain vigilant to the Iranian threat. Iran must not be allowed to obtain nuclear weapons, and Iran must continue to pay a price for their sponsorship of Jihadist terrorism.
Will you help us today on this issue by taking the important actions noted below?
