On April 2, 2015, the P5+1 (the US, UK, China, Russia, France and Germany – with EU facilitation) announced a framework agreement, setting the parameters for a final Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) agreement with Iran over its nuclear program.
Nuclear weapons in the hands of the Iranian regime will have severe repercussions for American security, the stability of the Middle East and the security of our allies.
More openness by the White House for the need to clarify and strengthen the clauses dealing with inspections, the easing of sanctions and what happens when the accord is violated would increase the chances of a more constructive Israeli role despite that side's suspicions. Similarly, Israel has to recognize that a deal has been struck with the support of the international community, and it will not go away.
The repeated anti-Semitic and anti-Israel views of Iran's leadership place the Iranian regime among the foremost threats to Jews and the state of Israel. Iran's leaders repeatedly demonize the state of Israel and openly call for its destruction at every opportunity. Most notoriously, they describe Israel as a "fake regime" that "must be wiped off the map."
