Proponents vs Opponents of Iran’s Nuclear Deal

Several famous American actors are supporting the Obama administration’s nuclear agreement with Iran, asking Congress not to sabotage the deal and make a new war.

In a video posted on YouTube on Tuesday, the actors called on Americans to contact lawmakers and encourage them to back the July 14 accord reached between Tehran and the six world powers in Vienna.

Actors Morgan Freeman, Jack Black, Natasha Lyonne and Farshad Farahat took part in the three-minute video produced by Global Zero, which is an organization fighting for a world without nuclear weapons.

Queen Noor of Jordan and retired US ambassador Thomas Pickering are also speaking in the humorous video.

The 78-year-old Freeman said without the current agreement, “we could be forced into a war with Iran — another dangerous, drawn-out and expensive conflict in the Middle East with many lives lost.”

“The alternative [to the deal] is war,” the Academy Award winner added.

Queen Noor of Jordan said, “We’re not actually worried about Iran dropping a nuclear weapon on the United States.”
Pickering added, “It is true that if Congress sabotages this deal, it would be nothing stopping Iran from getting the bomb. That would likely spark an arms race throughout the region.”

“War with Iran is a really bad idea,” Farahat said.

“Don’t let some hot-headed member of Congress screw that up,” Lyonne said.

“Playing politics with our national security is actually not all that funny,” Black said.

A day after Mike Huckabee said that President Obama was “marching the Israelis to the door of the oven,” former U.S. ambassadors to Israel strongly supported the nuclear deal reached between Iran and world powers.

In a poll released Monday, Public Policy Polling finds strong support for the Iran nuclear deal negotiated by the Obama administration. PPP’s director Tom Jensen writes in the polling memo that the “message is clear: voters think the Iran deal is a good one for the country, they want Congress to move it along, and if anything they’ll reward elected officials in the future who throw their support behind the agreement. It’s a winner politically.”

Polls show that American Jews overwhelmingly support the deal with Iran. For example, the Christian Science Monitor noted last November:
“84 percent of American Jews would favor either strongly or somewhat a deal with Iran that would alleviate tough sanctions on the Iranian economy.”

It is concluded that deal with Iran is the only as well as the best option for western countries. Iran has showed the world that sanctions and pressures are not appropriate tools to weaken and belittle nations. This English well-known proverb is not always correct: “Might is right.”

It seems that myriad people all over the world would like to support nuclear deal but Israel, its allies, and its lobbyists are among those who are opponents of Iran’s nuclear deal, demanding the Congress to disapprove the deal. Eventually, Iran is not isolated in the region and in the world, having impacts on its neighboring countries. On the other side, Israel is isolated and even its allies hardly follow whatever this regime makes them do. Last but not least, it is up to you whether being a proponent or opponent because Iran has been a prosperous and developed country. Nobility, dignity, honor, chivalry, resistance, and prosperity are among the words have existed in Iran’s literature since the creation of the universe.
