Dear Congressman Nadler:

Thank you for explaining the reasons for your support of the current Iran deal. Reading and re-reading your rationale has not changed my thinking on this issue, and I don’t think your argument is convincing.

Perhaps you had occasion to hear your colleague, Senator Menendez of New Jersey, speak on the issue at Seton Hall University. He gave a very compelling, dispassionate and cogent presentation as to why he is not supporting this deal in its present form. He also presented alternatives for obtaining a better deal for America and the free world.

In light of the above, I will respectfully ask that you reconsider your vote of support and request that the administration attempt to reach a deal that is not one-sided, and that will not give the Iranian regime multi-millions of dollars with which to fund more terror and death.

I believe that as long as Iran calls for the obliteration of America and the destruction of Israel, no deal is possible or achievable.

To declare that conscience is guiding your decision on this deal — despite all of its gaping flaws and dangers — is disheartening and indicative of a convoluted logic.

Making peace with an enemy does not mean that you enable it to harm you or your friends.

In summation, in this so-called deal, Iran gets everything and America gets a promise from a regime known to lie and cheat at every opportunity.

Both from a relationship and a business perspective, it doesn’t add up to much of a deal at all. Congressman Nadler, America can and must do better.

    very nice for the rabbi to be so respectful of the disgraceful nadler.

    Rabbi, it’s worth a try to move nadler. but, any hump, of reasonable intelligence and discernment, who could have supported the deal has to be a person, all verbal pieties aside, for whom the welfare of Israel and the Jewish is not very important.

    When given a choice between abandoning the hard left or betraying the Jews, leftist Jews appear to usually select betrayal of the Jews.
