Nearly one third of the Republican Caucus in the House of Representatives has introduced a resolution giving Israel a green light to attack Iran. H.Res.1553 declares unwavering support for Israel to â€œuse all means necessary,â€ to â€œeliminate nuclear threatsâ€ posed by Iran.
The game plan of these Members of Congress was spelled out by John Bolton in the Wall Street Journal just two weeks ago: â€œHaving visible congressional support in place at the outset [of an attack] will reassure the Israeli government, which is legitimately concerned about Mr. Obama’s likely negative reaction to such an attack.â€
The National Iranian American Council is urging people to contact House Republican leader John Boehner urging him to block this measure.
I also urge you to contact your individual member of Congress and Senator to oppose H.Res.1553. You can go to Congress.org to get contact info.
