Thousand of protesters gathered outside the offices of Democrat Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in New York City on Tuesday urging her to withdrawal her support for the Iranian nuclear deal.
Protesters held signs asking “What part of death to America, death to Israel do you not understand?”
The Blaze reports one protester yelled: “Impeach Obama now! Obama released $150 billion to the Iranian terrorist Nazi regime which is building nuclear gas chambers! How dare he!”
“He’s anti-Semite,” echoed another, “because he is trying to destroy the state of Israel.”
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., former U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman from Connecticut and former CIA Director James Woolsey were some of the speakers at the rally.
Lieberman called the deal “the worst agreement that’s been negotiated diplomatically in [the history of] the United States of America.”
According to the International Business Times, the rally was supported by Stand With Us, the Zionist Organization of America and several other pro-Israel and Christian groups, as well as military veterans who had served in the Middle East. Many protesters expressed their support for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has been an outspoken critic of the agreement.
Among the aspects of the deal that make it a “stunning, historic mistake” according to Netanyahu are:
- It lifts economic sanctions against the rogue regime, allowing hundreds of billions of dollars to flow into Iran.
- It keeps Iran’s nuclear infrastructure in place.
- It gives Iran 24 days to respond to any inspection of facilities by the U.N.
As reported by Western Journalism, despite fierce opposition at home and abroad, Congress will likely fail to block the Iran nuclear deal. Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md. recently became the crucial 34th vote that denies opponents the numbers needed to block the deal.
Although Republicans are lined up solidly against the proposed agreement, only two Democratic senators came out publicly against the deal — Chuck Schumer of New York and Robert Menendez of New Jersey.
A vote on the agreement is expected before Sept. 17.
