AIPAC STATEMENT ON SENATOR SCHUMER’S OPPOSITION TO IRAN AGREEMENT

August 7, 2015

AIPAC applauds Senator Schumer for his principled stand and his leadership in opposing the Iran nuclear agreement. Senator Schumer makes a critical point that there is a diplomatic alternative to this agreement. As Senator Schumer stated, “Better to keep U.S. sanctions in place, strengthen them, enforce secondary sanctions on other nations, and pursue the hard-trodden path of diplomacy once more, difficult as it may be.”  


We agree that we need a better deal as bipartisan opposition grows and public support for this bad deal is rapidly eroding.
