Tell Congress:
Extend The Iran Sanctions!

Obama wants to release $150 billion in funds that were seized from Iran as a result of the rogue nation's history of hostage-taking and building nuclear weapons in violation of previous agreements.

Iran's government proved by taking U.S. sailors hostage last week that they cannot be trusted and they have no intention of abiding by any agreement Obama makes with them.

Lifting these sanctions sends a license to every tyrant in the world that it is acceptable to capture and ransom Americans, because there is no reason to fear repercussions from Obama! This is why we must demand that Congress pass an extension of the Iran Sanctions Act!

Tell the GOP leadership team and the House Freedom Caucus to support and pass a 10-year extension of the Iran Sanctions Act!

I believe we can veto-proof this legislation (S. 1682) because the House of Representatives just voted in 2013 to strengthen sanctions against Iran - by a vote of 400 to 20!

The current bill being discussed, which you can read HERE, was drafted by Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL) and Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ). It has bipartisan support.

The bill extends the Iran Sanctions Act until 2026 and holds onto the funds that were rightfully seized from Iran decades ago in response to that nation's acts of aggression.

Back in 1979, Iranian jihadis seized the American embassy in Tehran and held 55 Americans hostage for 444 days. The hostages were finally released when Ronald Reagan was sworn in as President, because the Iranian government feared Reagan, who was no paper tiger like Jimmy Carter or Obama.

We can pressure enough Senators and Representatives to veto-proof this legislation if enough of us speak out!

The funds that were seized from Iran constitute restitution for the expense that America went to, in order to recover our hostages from them in 1980, and for other crimes that Iran has committed.

Ezekiel 33:14-15 explains restitution this way: "When I say to the wicked, 'You shall surely die,' if he turns from his sin and does what is lawful and right, if the wicked restores the pledge, gives back what he has stolen, and walks in the statutes of life without committing iniquity, he shall surely live; he shall not die."

Without restitution there is no justice, which is an abomination to God.

Obama has clearly forgotten or does not care that dozens of Americans had 444 days of their lives stolen by the Iranians, or that Iran has continued its aggressive acts of provocation for decades since then.

Releasing the sanctioned funds sends a message that capturing Americans is perfectly acceptable for rogue governments - and no American who travels overseas will be safe!

Tell Congress to stand up to Obama by extending the Iran Sanctions Act! We need to punish Obama's "buddies" once again, especially after they took American sailors hostage without provocation!

Dear Senator McConnell:

Do not allow Barack Obama to lift the sanctions against Iran. If you allow this to take place, you are sending a message to the world's leading sponsor of international terrorism that America is weak and Iran can get away with anything.The rogue government in Tehran took our sailors hostage last week and Obama is apologizing for OUR actions - as if we somehow provoked the Iranians!

In case you have forgotten, the $150 billion in seized funds from the Iranians was restitution for Iran's repeated acts of aggression against the USA. They took our embassy personnel hostage in 1979 and held dozens of Americans captive for 444 days. We went to considerable expense in both taxpayer money and human lives. Eight service members died trying to rescue the hostages, and 55 Americans were held captive for more than a year. That money is owed to America for the considerable expense we have had to go through in battling the regime in Tehran.

Releasing the sanctioned funds tells the Iranians that America is a weak nation and there are no repercussions for hostage-taking! You have a responsibility to uphold the law and to defend our nation on the world stage. Islamic nations have a long track record of attempting to bully America as long as we let them get away with it.

There is no justice for Iran's crimes if you allow Obama to lift the Iranian sanctions. I urge you in the strongest possible terms to support and pass the extension of the Iran Sanctions Act proposed in Senate bill 1682, which extends the sanctions until at least 2026. This bill has bipartisan support in the House and Senate and I urge you to support it too!
