IRAN IS THE WORLD’S LARGEST SPONSOR OF
TERRORISM. IT IS BEHIND MORE AMERICAN DEATHS
THAN ANY OTHER TERRORIST GROUP ON EARTH.






Iranian-backed terrorist attacks span at least 25 countries and
five continents – from Israel to Iraq, from Bulgaria to

Argentina. Iran sponsors Hezbollah in Lebanon, Islamic

Jihad and Hamas in Gaza, and terrorist groups that have

murdered thousands of American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.





Recent Iranian terrorist activities included a
plot to blow up a restaurant frequented by Members
of Congress in the heart of Washington, DC.





Iran has already shown that it’s willing to give the most
advanced weapons in its arsenal to terrorists. Why should
we assume that it wouldn’t do the same with a nuclear bomb?

IRAN’S LEADERS CALL FOR ISRAEL TO BE WIPED OFF
THE MAP – AND ESPOUSE A VIRULENTLY ANTI-WESTERN,
ANTI-AMERICAN, AND ANTI-SEMITIC IDEOLOGY.






Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, has publicly labeled the
Holocaust a “myth”. He has called Israel a “hideous
entity in the Middle East which will undoubtedly be
annihilated,” and he has declared that the “mission of the Islamic
Republic of Iran” is to “erase Israel from the map of the region.”






Iranian leaders refer to the United States as the world’s “Great
Satan” – and encourage violence against Americans. At a recent
public rally, Iran’s President said, “Saying ‘Death to America’
is easy. We need to express ‘Death to America’ with action.”

IRAN IS A GREAT FORCE OF INSTABILITY AND
FRIEND OF TYRANNY FROM THE MIDDLE EAST
TO LATIN AMERICA.




Iran’s military and terrorist proxies are working handin-hand with Bashar Assad, helping him to murder
hundreds of thousands of men, women, and children in Syria.





Iran funds, trains, and supports the most extreme and violent
leaders and movements in the Middle East – from Iraq
to Bahrain to Yemen to Gaza.






Iran and its key surrogate, Hezbollah, work handin- hand with criminals and drug runners across Africa and
throughout Latin America, including in Brazil, Colombia,
Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago.

IRAN IS ONE OF THE MOST BRUTAL, REPRESSIVE
STATES ON THE FACE OF THE PLANET, PERSECUTING
RELIGIOUS MINORITIES AND ANYONE WHO DARES TO
DISSENT FROM THE REGIME’S EXTREME IDEOLOGY.





Christian minorities in Iran face daily persecution and
subjugation. Evangelical Christian pastor Farshid Fathi is now
serving a 6-year prison sentence for the crime of singing
a Christian hymn.




Iran has imprisoned more journalists and bloggers than any other
nation. It also has the world’s highest per capita rate of executions.

TIME AND AGAIN, IT’S BEEN PROVEN THAT IRAN’S
NUCLEAR PROGRAM HAS ONLY ONE PURPOSE: TO CREATE
A WEAPON THAT CAN THREATEN AND DESTROY ISRAEL,
AND CRIPPLE THE UNITED STATES AND ITS ALLIES.





Iran has absolutely no need for a nuclear energy program. It sits
on one of the world’s largest energy reserves. Moreover, Russia
signed a ten-year contract to provide fuel for Iran’s nuclear
power reactor.






Director of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA),
Yukiya Amano, repeated four times in a short interview
this past November that the IAEA “cannot yet give the assurance
that all nuclear activities in Iran are for peaceful purposes.”

IRAN HAS CONTINUOUSLY LIED TO THE WORLD ABOUT
ITS NUCLEAR WEAPONS PROGRAM, USING THE RUSE OF
NEGOTIATION TO MAKE PROGRESS TOWARDS A BOMB.
WE CANNOT STAND BY AS THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION
ALLOWS THE IRANIANS TO CONTINUE STALLING.






While telling the United Nations that its nuclear program was for
peaceful purposes, Iran researched nuclear weapons detonators,
built a covert supply network, computer-modeled nuclear explosions,
and ran engineering experiments for putting a nuclear warhead
on a missile.












In 2009, Western intelligence agencies revealed that Iran had built a
secret facility deep in a mountain designed for approximately
3,000 centrifuges to enrich uranium. President Obama
commented that the “configuration” of the Fordow facility is
“not consistent with a peaceful nuclear program.” Iran’s
current President, Hassan Rouhani– who was previously
the head of its nuclear negotiating team – said, “While we were
talking with the Europeans in Tehran, we were installing equipment
in parts of the [nuclear conversion] facility in Isfahan. By creating
a calm environment, we were able to complete the work there.”

EXPERTS BELIEVE THAT IRAN ALREADY HAS ENOUGH
WEAPONS-GRADE URANIUM TO BUILD A BOMB IN
A MATTER OF MONTHS.







By using the approximately 9,000 first generation centrifuges operating
at its Natanz Fuel Enrichment Plant, Iran could theoretically produce
enough weapon-grade uranium to fuel a single nuclear warhead in
about 1.7 months. It only takes one bomb, one time, to destroy
Israel and severely cripple the United States and her allies.
And Iran is almost there.

THE ONLY ACCEPTABLE DIPLOMATIC DEAL WITH IRAN WOULD
BLOCK ITS PATH TO A NUCLEAR BOMB. THE CURRENT
BARGAIN BEING PROPOSED BY THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION
IS A BAD DEAL – IT WOULD LEAVE THE WORLD WITH
LITTLE RECOURSE TO PREVENT IRAN FROM “SNEAKING
OUT” AND “BREAKING OUT” TO A NUCLEAR WEAPON.





A good deal would dismantle all of Iran’s centrifuges, downgrade
its heavy water reactor to a light water reactor, roll back its missile
program, and force Iran to submit to inspections any time,
anywhere in the country.







We may be able to verify that Iran lives up to a weak deal —
for a while. But if Iran is allowed to continue spinning centrifuges
to produce uranium, stockpile plutonium, and keep its other
nuclear infrastructure — it can pull out of a deal at any time and race
for a bomb within weeks, before the world has a chance to react.

AN IRANIAN BOMB WOULD SPUR A NUCLEAR
ARMS RACE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WORLD’S MOST
UNSTABLE REGION – FROM SAUDI ARABIA TO EGYPT
TO TURKEY AND ACROSS THE PERSIAN GULF.




In 2009, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia promised his country would
“get nuclear weapons” if the Iranians do. Leaders in Kuwait, Qatar,
and other Gulf states have echoed his comments over the past six years.






The catastrophic implications of these developments are clear. In a
region with unstable regimes that frequently work hand-in-hand with
terrorists, it would only be a matter of time before nuclear weapons
were used.

IRAN HAS AN ADVANCED BALLISTIC MISSILE ARSENAL
THAT CAN ALREADY HIT ISRAEL AND WESTERN EUROPE.
It’s estimated that they will be able to reach the United States
within a few years.
