JNS.org – Tens of thousands of Christians signed on to a global petition organized by the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ) urging world powers involved in the Iranian nuclear negotiations to take a firm line with Iran.

The petition calls on the Western powers involved in the talks—U.S., U.K., France, and Germany (not including the non-Western P5+1 countries, Russia and China)—as well as the European Union and United Nations to “hold firm in demanding the complete dismantling of the Iranian nuclear facilities until any sanctions relief is given to Tehran.”

Specifically, the petition calls for Iran to completely dismantle its nuclear program and for sanctions to remain in place until the Islamic Republic “relinquishes its destructive goals of spreading terrorism, destroying Israel, and achieving regional hegemony.”

According to the ICEJ, more than 80,000 Christians from dozens of countries worldwide signed on to the petition, which was delivered to the foreign ministers of the Western countries involved in the nuclear talks.

“While we appreciate the ongoing diplomatic efforts to resolve the Iranian nuclear crisis, we fear the agreement now under consideration will not prevent Iran from producing nuclear weapons,” the petition says. “It contains too many concessions given the enormity of this threat and the untrustworthy nature of the Iranian regime. We feel we must speak up before it is too late, for the safety of ourselves and our children.”

    This agreement is the worst decision any human being has ever made. Iran openly calls for the genocide of other nations, and here is the Democratic WH arming them with nuclear weapons which will enable Iran to carry out it’s heart desire.

    There never was a need to approach Iran in the first place. Sanctions should have run their course.

      I completely agree. I believe that we, the citizens of the world, need to unite to pressure our governments to stand firm against Iran’s attempts to become a nuclear power. What suggestions do the readers have to stop this treaty from completion?
