Jewish War Veterans of the United States of America

Continued Sanctions Against Iran

Summer 2015

WHEREAS, the Islamic Republic of Iran (Iran) continues to threaten the very existence of the State of Israel and refers to it as an illegal state, and

WHEREAS, Iran has stated its hatred of the United States and the Jewish people, and

WHEREAS, Iran unabashedly supports terrorist organizations such as the Hamas, Taliban, Al-Qaida, Hezbollah, Palestine Islamic Jihad, and others that have no known names with funds, training, weapons, and personnel, and

WHEREAS, Iran and its minions hold countless hostages and have horrendously slain and tortured countless men, women and even children whose sole sin was not following the same form of Islam as they believe, and

WHEREAS, the viable method of holding Iran accountable for its terrorism and support for terrorism by others has proven to be sanctions imposed by nations of the world led by the United States and its allies,

THEREFORE, the Jewish War Veterans of the USA calls upon the President and Congress to not lift any sanctions now being imposed until such time as Iran recognizes the right of the State of Israel to exist as a country and the right of the Jews of the world to live, and ceases its support for terrorism and terrorists.
