• Staying Tough with Tehran — Because Iran Remains a Threat to America and the World

    Surge Summary: Iran remains a threat to America’s security and peace in the Middle East. The U.S. must not relax its efforts to hold the regime in check and a bi-partisan duo of Congressmen are urging the President to make sure that doesn’t happen.

    Kudos to Representatives Eliot Engel (D-NY) and Michael McCaul (R-TX)!

    This bi-partisan duo leads the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and they have organized a letter, signed by 90% of the House, urging the Trump Administration to pressure the United Nations to maintain the arms embargo against Iran.  The embargo is set to expire in October.  The last thing the world’s leading state-sponsor of terrorism needs is even more access to weapons!

    Meanwhile, Iran and its apologists are attacking the administration for not providing more humanitarian aid during the coronavirus crisis.  Why would the Trump Administration do that?  Because the regime is using what precious resources it does have to pay for attacks against Israel.

    Iran does not share a border with Israel, and faces no threat from Israel.  Yet the tyrants of Tehran are dedicated to destroying the Jewish state.  So much so that in the middle of this pandemic, they are sending suitcases full of cash to Hezbollah fighters in Lebanon and Syria.
