AIPAC Statement on Prime Minister
Netanyahu's Address to Congress

March 3, 2015

AIPAC commends the overwhelmingly bipartisan attendance and positive response to Prime Minister Netanyahu’s address to the joint meeting of Congress today. The prime minister expressed appreciation for the unbroken U.S. commitment to Israel from President Truman to President Obama. The prime minister’s message to Congress and the American people is critical at a moment when there is a danger that an agreement will be reached that fails to dismantle Iran’s program such that it does not have a path to a nuclear weapon.

AIPAC believes that on a matter as crucial to U.S. national security as preventing a nuclear-capable Iran, Congress must assert its historic foreign policy role, review any agreement, and object if a bad agreement is reached. That is why AIPAC strongly supports adoption of the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015 (S.615) introduced by Sens. Bob Corker (R-TN) and Robert Menendez (D-NJ).
