“This vote is as important for the actual sanctions it would impose as it is for the message it sends,” said B’nai B’rith International President Dennis W. Glick. “Tough sanctions are a vital step in efforts to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons.”
“We cannot allow a world leader who has vowed to wipe Israel off the map to have nuclear weapons,” said B’nai B’rith International Executive Vice President Daniel S. Mariaschin. “Harsh, enforceable sanctions, such as those passed by the Senate, are a critical tool to halt Iran’s nuclear weapons program.”
The House last month passed similar legislation and we urge the Senate and the House to work quickly to reconcile their separate bills.
