A Gold Star Dad Makes His Case against the Iran Deal

David French writes on National Review:

The truly chilling thing is that the Obama administration now admits that its “deal” will lead to increased funding for terror groups, yet it persists in arguing that it’s the only way to prevent a war. Yet if Iran is killing American soldiers — and has been doing so for years — can the administration credibly say we’re at peace? 

This dad doesn’t think so.  His son was killed while in Iraq by an Iranian made bomb.

David goes on to say, “The tragic — unconscionable — reality is that if Veterans Against the Deal wanted to do an ad for every American family touched by Iranian terror, these two ads would be followed by a thousand more. Iran is at war with the United States, and Barack Obama’s deal strengthens our enemy.”

As We Celebrate Our Liberty, An Iranian Pastor Faces Death

On this holiday weekend an Iranian pastor’s life hangs in the balance. On June 28, the Iranian Supreme Court uphelddeath sentence against Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani. His crimes? Apostasy and evangelism. Pastor Nadarkhani had publicly opposed an Iranian practice requiring that all children, regardless of faith, receive Islamic instruction. In spite of alleged religious-freedom guarantees under the Iranian constitution, he now faces death — a sentence that could literally be carried out at any time.

Time is of the essence, and at the ACLJ we’re doing all we can. Yesterday we sent letters to the State Department and to the Iranian Mission of the United Nations. These letters outline Iran’s obligations not only under its own constitution but also under international agreements it has voluntarily agreed to uphold. While the nature and character of the Iranian regime is well-known, as the saying goes, where there is life; there is hope.

And as of today, Pastor Nadarkhani is alive.
