BBYO Supports Sanctions on Iran
Hon. Hillary Rodham Clinton Secretary of State U.S. Department of State 2201 C Street, NW Washington, DC 20520 Dear Secretary Clinton, We, the undersigned, members and friends of BBYO, the world’s leading pluralistic Jewish teen movement, urge you to take every possible step in preventing Iran from developing a nuclear weapon. We are extremely concerned about the active role that Iran has taken in supporting terrorism against the United States, Israel and other democratic nations as they continue to rebuff the IAEA. The words of Iran’s leadership reflect their desire to eliminate Israel, destabalize the Middle East and destroy the United States. We strongly support working with our allies in the international community and the UN to issue further economic, diplomatic and political sanctions against Iran until they comply with their nonproliferation obligations. We also support prohibiting the export to Iran of refined petroleum products as an effort to pressure and isolate their current regime. We need you to help ensure that this declared enemy of the U.S. and Israel does not develop the ability to target population centers and our military personnel serving in Iraq and Afghanistan or hold the world hostage to the threat of a nuclear attack. We urge you to take action to help us build a better and safe future. Please act now!
