The pressure on Congress continues to mount as 340 Rabbis have become 440, and only the gang who gave us the Iraq War support an Iran War.
The Republicans find themselves increasingly alone in opposing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), commonly known as the Iran nuclear deal. Back on July 20, not only did the United Nations Security Council unanimously endorse the JCPOA, but we saw a “Statement by National Security Leaders on the Announcement of a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action” signed by 60 national security leaders, from cabinet members to senators.
Schumer (D-Israel), announced he was joining forces with war monger Graham (R-Israel) to thwart the UN's P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran
House Republicans will be voting on a resolution of disapproval of the Iran deal, and Senate Republicans are talking about a resolution too
Senate "No-Show" Cruz says Obama "snuggles up to" radical Islamic regimes, but suggests Obama is too busy golfing to take him up on it
What is duplicitous and very telling about how Republicans operate, and where their only loyalties and priorities lie, is that they are pushing the President to seek unilateral authority to negotiate and sign an international trade deal; something that requires congressional approval.

What Netanyahu and Republicans fear is peace, which would interrupt their cycle of fear, leaving Iran more reasonable than the GOP
