Iran continues to pose a major challenge to the international community.
Its threat to close the Strait of Hormuz – and the oil tankers passing through – could do major damage to the global economy.
Its wide-ranging support for terrorism – from Azerbaijan to Argentina, Afghanistan to Iraq, Lebanon to, yes the U.S. – is ominous.
Its support for Syrian repression and the murder of thousands there is hideous.
And its suppression of its own people is outrageous.
The targets are numerous: journalists and bloggers, gays and women’s rights activists, students and dissidents, Baha’is and more.
Now imagine this same Iran with a bomb and its finger on the button.
Pretty terrifying, isn’t it?
That’s why it’s the policy of America, Europe and likeminded countries to say no to an Iranian bomb.
And that’s why AJC has produced a short film on the danger of an Iranian bomb.
See the film at ajc.org. That’s ajc.org. Share it with others.
This is David Harris of AJC.
