Hollywood celebs sign open letter supporting Iran deal
A group of 98 prominent members of the Los Angeles Jewish community, most with ties to Hollywood, have signed an open letter supporting the proposed nuclear agreement between Iran and six world powers led by the United States, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Identifying themselves as “American Jewish supporters of Israel” in the full-page ad, which appeared in the Thursday edition of LA’s Jewish Journal, the group urges Congress to approve the agreement because, they claim, it “is in the best interest of the United States and Israel.”
“We appreciate that many have reasonable concerns about the risks of a complex nuclear weapons development agreement with an untrustworthy adversary like Iran,” the letter states, quoted the Hollywood Reporter.
“We too hold these concerns, but the deal that was reached is not founded on trust it is grounded in rigorous inspections and monitoring.”
The letter warns that killing the deal, as many Republican lawmakers have pledged to do – and even one Democrat, New York Senator Chuck Schumer – would be a “tragic mistake.”
OK I give up.
