IRAN NUCLEAR AGREEMENT
Israeli leaders continue to criticize the deal and warn that it poses a threat to their country’s national security. Speaking from Ethiopia, President Obama sharply denounces political opponents for moving beyond facts on the nuclear agreement and into personal attacks on him and other diplomatic leaders. The longest-serving Jewish member of the House of Representatives announces his support for the Iran nuclear deal. Leaders from both the U.S. and Israel state that a potential release of convicted spy Jonathan Pollard has no connection to the nuclear deal. U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz states that Congressional rejection of the deal may create problems with the U.S. and international allies. A group of former diplomats, including five U.S. ambassadors to Israel, write to Congress to support ratification of the agreement.
