The Anti-Defamation League, one of the American Jewish community’s oldest and most influential advocacy groups, is urging the US Congress to vote against the Iran nuclear agreement.
The organization sent out a press release early Friday outlining the reasons that it says lawmakers should vote “no” on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
“The debate today is focused in Congress on ‘yes’ or ‘no’ on the Iran deal,” the ADL said. “Given the outstanding questions and our deep reservations about the agreement, we believe Congress should vote no on the deal.”
“At the same time, we believe there is an opportunity for bipartisan collaboration to forge a new path forward,” the organization said.
“Regardless of the outcome of the vote, we have a responsibility to ensure that US policy addresses the ‘day after’ the vote and Iran’s state-sponsored promotion of anti-Semitism and anti-Americanism; its illiberalism at home, aggression in the region and support for terrorism around the world; and its unending litany of threats against America, Israel and other US allies.”
