Dear Friends,

Breaking news: While President Obama claims to want Israel not to attack Iran, he has reportedly sold them the weapons to facilitate such an attack, weapons Bush had refused to provide. According to the Israeli newspaper Maariv, Obama has reportedly sold weapons on condition that the attack be delayed until 2013, after the November U.S. election.

TELL PRESIDENT OBAMA. No attack on Iran — not now or 2013.
No backroom weapons deals — a deal that even Bush refused to make.

 

More than12,000 have signed the letter to Congress and President Obama. Can you help us reach 20,000 signers? Please sign the letter if you haven’t already or forward this email to your friends and family. 

Thanks!

A full page ad in Monday’s Washington Postquotes former top U.S. military officials opposing an attack on Iran. 

But Israel’s conservative government wants an attack, …and President Obama’s speech at the AIPAC conference on Sunday was highly praised by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

Tell President Obama: Not Another War!  

AIPAC is the powerful “Israel-right-or-wrong” lobby and it is backing Senate legislation (authored by Lindsay Graham and Joe Leiberman) that seeks to require an attack. 

Meanwhile, President Obama wants to increase to $3.1 billion the weapons that you and I buy for Israel next year, while continuing to protect Israel from accountability at the United Nationsor elsewhere. 

Tell Congress and the President to avoid another war, and to do so right now.  

A military attack on Iran would be disastrous for Iranians, Israelis, the region and the world — perhaps even worse than the Iraq invasion

This time, unlike a decade ago, let’s heed informed voices of restraint (like the signers of the Post ad) and not the frenzied voices of war. 

Don’t Iraq Iran!

Signed,
Aimee, David, Jeff, Sarah and the Roots Action Team
