What FCNL feels cannot happen is that other groups undermine the talks with more sanctions that would hinder the work to continue and may, at best, lead to more of what we’ve had, or worse, a new war. The 430 people who came to Washington to lobby on this issue for FCNL are not looking for anything more than a safer world. We came for ourselves, the Iranian people who have no way to converse with their government and the world community. We came to show our respect to our political system, which seems to be really damaged now, and we came for our representatives, to hear the concerns of their constituents.
I am requesting that Senator Blumenthal and Representative Esty speak out in favor of diplomacy with Iran. The future does hold hope in the world.
Let us reach for it.
