Petition Statement

The greatest threat facing both Israel and America today is Iran’s radical regime that repeatedly and publicly vows to “wipe Israel off the map” and then attack America.

President Obama is negotiating with Iran and reports indicate the United States and its partners are willing to make significant and worrisome concessions for the sake of a deal.

Join us as we take a stand for the safety of America and Israel.

TO: President Barack Obama

CC: The Honorable Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Leader
The Honorable Harry Reid, Senate Minority Leader
The Honorable John A. Boehner, Speaker of the House
The Honorable Nancy Pelosi, House Minority Leader

Dear Mr. President,

We are Christian leaders collectively representing tens of millions of Americans who are gravely concerned that your Administration is moving towards a deal that would allow Iran to remain a nuclear-threshold state.

The prospect of an Iranian nuclear weapon is the single greatest threat to America’s national security. We must ensure that the Iranian regime does not have the tools to build a single bomb.

Iran’s leaders have consistently lied about their quest for nuclear weapons. They cannot be trusted.

Iranian leaders have also repeatedly threatened to “wipe Israel off the map.” We should take them at their word, as they seek to acquire nuclear weapons that could be used against the Jewish state.

Already the largest sponsor of terrorism on the planet, Iran’s power and influence will only grow if its nuclear ambitions are not thwarted. A nuclear-armed Iran would mean nuclear-armed terrorists.

If Iran is allowed to become a nuclear-threshold state, others in the Middle East will almost certainly seek the same capability, setting off a nuclear arms race in the world’s most unstable region.

We urge you to pursue a policy based on two principles:

  1. Any deal that your Administration signs with Iran must completely dismantle the regime’s ability to build a bomb.
  2. Any agreement that you sign on Iran’s nuclear program must be ratified by Congress. The consent of Congress will help to ensure that this agreement has the American people’s approval and endures through future administrations.

The prospects of failure are too high to accept anything but a good deal with Iran.

If America’s leaders do not act wisely now, we could wake up tomorrow with the world’s most dangerous regime in possession of the world’s most dangerous weapons.
