B’nai B’rith Renews Calls For Replacement Of Seriously Flawed Agreement With Iran In Response To Evidence Of Nuclear Weapons Activity
Following Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s detailing of evidence confirming longstanding, military-oriented Iranian nuclear activity — in violation of Tehran’s claims of benign intentions and the spirit of the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) — B’nai B’rith International urges the immediate replacement of that faulty agreement with a system of total, verifiable and permanent curbs on Iran’s nuclear and weapons-proliferation programs.
Netanyahu described the exhaustive material gleaned from intelligence-gathering efforts as conclusive proof of Iran’s drive for the world’s most dangerous weaponry, even as Iranian leaders spread violent mayhem throughout the Middle East and beyond.
These internal Iranian government blueprints and other documents have revealed a duplicitous regime determined to produce nuclear weapons. President Trump will be deciding next month whether the United States will remain party to the JCPOA. We strongly encourage the U.S. and its partners either to fix the glaring deficiencies in this dangerously inadequate deal or to pull out of it entirely and negotiate a new agreement. B’nai B’rith has been critical of the JCPOA from the outset, not only because of its deficiencies but also as Iran has proven it cannot be trusted to honor its obligations.
