Revisiting The Iran Deal

editor 14 October 2017

By David Harris.. This week, President Donald Trump is expected to speak on Iran and, specifically, the fate of the Iran deal (JCPOA). We have been following the Iran policy discussion closely for years, and are in touch with a wide range of decision-makers from the U.S. and overseas. From the start, AJC took a deliberative approach to the JCPOA, just as we will do depending on what the president says regarding certification/decertification of the deal and the role of Congress going forward.

editor 24 August 2016

Iran’s Indecent Proposal

editor 29 October 2015

By Bret Stephens.. The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action—better known as the Iran nuclear deal—was officially adopted Sunday, October 18, 2015. That’s nine days ago. It’s already a dead letter. Not that you would have noticed by reading the news or tuning in to State Department or White House briefings. It’s too embarrassing to an administration that has invested all of its diplomatic capital in the deal. (more…)


Iran nuclear pact: Tale of the scorpion and the frog

editor 30 July 2015

By Chaim Shacham.. Few residents of the Middle East are unfamiliar with the story of the scorpion and the frog. It was first referred to in the Talmud (Nedarim 41a), the seminal ancient Jewish legal text compiled in the fourth century. In it, a scorpion desiring to cross a river meets a hungry frog. Unable to swim, the scorpion asks the frog to carry him across the river on his back. In return the scorpion promised the frog that he would provide him with the food he needs from the plentiful hunting ground on the other side. (more…)

editor 27 July 2015

By Tzvi Ben-Gedalyahu.. A Saudi prince’s reaction to the nuclear agreement with Iran makes last week’s White House’s rosy spin of official reaction by Saudi Arabia to “ObamaDeal” look like an act that should never have gone on stage. Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan, former Ambassador to the United States, warned that the nuclear agreement with Iran “will wreak havoc in the Middle East” and that Gulf Powers are willing to attack Iranian nuclear sites, even if the United States is not interested.
