Words, Not War with Iran: oppose H.R. 6198, the "Iran Freedom Support Act"

From: "Faithful Security"

Dear Martin Greenhut,

Earlier this week, Faithful Security and Sojourners released the "Words, Not War" statement from religious leaders urging direct talks with Iran //www.wordsnotwar.org . Legislation is in the Senate today which would scuttle the diplomatic process. Two quick phone calls will ensure that your Senators get the message that in the nuclear standoff with Iran, diplomacy is the only answer.

Your senator is one of a small number of legislators who could block legislation that would undermine international negotiations with Iran. This week European negotiators are meeting with Iranian diplomats to negotiate an agreement that would bring Iran into compliance with the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. The European Union is cautiously optimistic that a deal can be reached. But Thursday afternoon, the U.S. House of Representatives passed new sanctions on Iran. The legislation was introduced Wednesday, September 27, rushed to the House floor, and adopted by a voice vote. Rep. Earl Blumenauer (OR) lead the opposition to the bill, calling it "a cruise missile aimed at a difficult diplomatic effort just as they are reaching their most sensitive point. The timing for this legislation could not be worse."

The Senate is expected to consider the "Iran Freedom Support Act," H.R. 6198, either Friday or Saturday. Given the backlog of legislation at the end of the current Congressional session, these new Iranian sanctions could be blocked, if enough constituents call their senators--now.

The smart and moral approach to this situation is to sit down and talk with the Iranian government. Many U.S. senators are working to maintain open channels for this dialogue with Iran. If the U.S. continues to insist that no dialogue is possible with Iran, then war is the likely alternative.

Take Action:

Call your two senators through the Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask them to oppose H.R. 6198, the "Iran Freedom Support Act." If you don't know your senator's names, you can look them up on the Friends Committee for National Legislation website //www.fcnl.org .
