B’nai B’rith International has issued the following statement:
B’nai B’rith International commends the House of Representatives for approving a 10-year extension of the Iran Sanctions Act (ISA). The bill was passed by a majority of 419-1 on Nov. 15. These sanctions target Iran’s support of terrorism and its nuclear activities. Tehran is the largest state-sponsor of terror and is known for inciting violence and hate around the world, including calling for the destruction of Israel.
We strongly urge the Senate to pass the same legislation.
We are also pleased that the House passed another measure that would apply new sanctions on any person or country that enables Syria’s war crimes.
