Gant Daily – The longest-serving Jewish member currently in Congress announced Tuesday that he’ll back the Iran nuclear deal, saying it is the best way to protect Israel.

“I believe that Israel, the region, and the world are far more secure if Iran does not move toward possession of a nuclear weapon. I believe the Agreement is the best way to achieve that,” said Democratic Rep. Sandy Levin in a statement.

    Contact Levin. Inform him that this deal materially helps Russia dominate Eastern Europe and place the US mainland at direct risk of attack.

    Russia has announced that it will sell Iran ICBM technology. Iran does not need ICBMs to attack Israel. ICBMs in the hands of Iran with a nuclear weapon are a threat to the entire East Coast of the United States. They still shout “death to America” in Iran. Several days ago Pres. Rouhani led a parade through the streets of Tehran whose theme was very vocal: “death to America”.

    Russia has also announced that it will upgrade that portion of its IBM force both qualitatively and quantitatively that is aimed at the United States. Money coming from weapons sales to Iran will help finance this enhancement of Russian capability which will improve Russia’s position as they announced in terms of their assaults against Ukraine, and in their announced aggravations against Poland and Latvia.

    Russia has also announced that they will sell Iran short-range attack missiles which place US naval forces in danger and give Iran a lock control over the essential waterways which control a major portion of international petroleum traffic.

    Russia has also announced that they will sell advanced air defense missiles and communications to Iran which would make any nuclear/missile force impregnable to attack.

    2. Will Iran have significantly increased resources to devote to terror and penetration operations which directly threaten American lives and American interests…..{ the deal permits the Revolutionary guard Corps to expand their already considerable penetration of central and south America}.

    There are no restrictions on the money that will be released to Iran. There is only hope that it will be spent for internal economic and social improvements.

    Currently Iran is the major funder of international terrorism. They are active in South America and Central America. They are active in Jordan, Yemen, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Gaza, the West Bank, Syria, Lebanon, etc.

    Since April 2015 the Obama administration has released $700 million per month to Iran. Unfortunately, a substantial percentage of these released funds have gone to fund internal security operations within Iran and to finance increased operations of the IRGC throughout the world. Accordinfg to the sworn congressional testimony of Marine Corps Gen. Joseph Dunford, President Obama’s nominee to be chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff: “Iran is directly linked to deaths of more than 500 U.S. troops in Iraq, Afghanistan.”

    According to DOJ interpretation this agreement:

    a. has already taken those who have been found guilty of murdering Americans and have been penalized by US courts completely off the hook and has granted them complete freedom from these judgments and verdicts.

    b. obligates the US to assist and train Iran in preventing any sabotage against its nuclear facilities. This obligates the US to protect the Iranian nuclear and missile programs from cyber attack and may require the US to share cyber protection technology with the Iranians.

    c. states that the US may not impose any new sanctions on Iran for any other reasons. So if next year Iran’s terrorists were to attack a US embassy , the US would not be allowed to sanction Iran for such aggression{. If you think this is far-fetched consider the attack by Iran on the Jewish center in Argentina and the current lack of follow-up by the Argentine government. Also, it is public record that the US did not report Iranian transgressions and violations of the current agreement to the UN in order not to jeopardize “progress” on the negotiations with Iran. Further, the US refused to accept the evidence that the reactor under construction in Syria which had been financed by Iran and was utilizing North Korean technology was in fact a nuclear reactor until after Israel destroyed it and the exact nature of the installation could no longer be denied by US intelligence/State Department.}

      LM Howard: I did as you requested and I did contact Hon. Levin and applauded his support of the Iran Treaty. Please, try not to confuse the substance and intent of the agreement supported by the overwhelming majority of the world with restricting Iran from misbehaving in ways other than obtaining a nuclear weapon. That is what this treaty does do.

  • JOHN TRAIN

    Levin’s son-in-law,Matt Nosanchuk works in the Obama White House. This early endorsement of the deal as more and more distressing facts emerge and more and more lies and distortions are broadcast by the administration shows a hypocrite.

    Levin should be hounded for his cowardly sell-out of the US.

    1. Sworn congressional testimony of Marine Corps Gen. Joseph Dunford, President Obama’s nominee to be chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff: “Iran directly linked to deaths of more than 500 U.S. troops in Iraq, Afghanistan.”

    2. the intelligence material gives rise to fairly unambiguous conclusions: that the Western delegates crossed all of the red lines that they drew themselves and conceded most of what was termed critical at the outset; and that the Iranians have achieved almost all of their goals.

    3. This deal allows Iran to continue developing and to build Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles. Iran’s government is spending hundreds of millions developing intercontinental ballistic missiles that can reach the United States. This agreement allows it to continue developing ICBMs. There is only one reason for Iran to have ICBMs: New York, Washington DC, Boston,etc.

    is levin non compos mentis? prevent iran from going nuclear? even if iran were to break with its tradition and actually comply, at the termination of the agreement, THERE WOULD BE NOTHING STOPPING IT FROM THE CROSSING THE NUCLEAR THRESHHOLD.

    hey, genuius, levin, are you stupid or so lacking in integrity that you don’t care what you’re doing?

    or, maybe, you do care about what you’re doing and the only thing that matters is your adherence to the party line.

    this is the sum of your intelligence, your wisdom, your experience, all your years…this is it? this is what all that has brought you to? what a pitiful, shriveled, disgusting shell of a man!

    He should either be barred from entry to Israel for life, or, be required to be only in Sderot if he does.
