J Street says Politicians Sounding too ‘Tough’ on Iran

Published

on

Amid the growing Iranian nuclear threat and global terrorist attacks linked to the country, J Street Executive Director Jeremy Ben-Ami sent an email to supporters stating that politicians in Washington “are focused on sounding tough rather than on developing sound strategy to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon.”

Ben-Ami instead advocated for the efforts of U.S. officials who are “anxious to avoid yet another Middle East war.” Specifically, he encouraged support for a letter from U.S. Reps. Keith Ellison (D-MN) and Walter Jones (R-NC) to President Obama that backs “both sanctions and pressure on Iran as well as a robust diplomatic initiative.” Ellison is the first Muslim to be elected to Congress.

“One letter won’t silence those beating the drums for war,” Ben-Ami wrote. “But it can signal that there is support for pursuing all other options first.”
