The following is from a MoveOn.org petition, submitted by Maya Haber, PPI’s Director of Development and Programming. Consider signing the petition, and sending this text to your elected member of the United States House of Representatives and the US Senate:
I am your constituent and, as an American Jew, I am a strong supporter of Israel and its right to exist safely and at peace. I am writing to urge you to vote FOR the Iranian nuclear agreement which will be voted on by the Congress next month.
My conviction that this agreement is the best course of action has only strengthened after studying it and following the public debate. I note that in the text Iran forswears future development of nuclear weapons and commits to significant reduction in its current nuclear capabilities with intrusive inspections. This is an agreement that is serious in providing incentives for Iran to comply and strong disincentives for breaching it.
I very much hope that you will support President Obama in this matter and vote for the agreement. I am fully aware that many Jewish organizations are lobbying intensively against it and attempting to convey the impression that American Jews overwhelmingly oppose it. I assure you that that is simply not true and that I and many others, constituting a majority of American Jews, stand ready to support those who support the agreement.
