The Rabbinical Alliance of America — Igud HaRabbonim, a professional Rabbinical Organization with a membership of over 950 Orthodox Rabbis — extends its unanimous praise to President Trump for announcing that the United States will withdraw from the disastrous Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). “The president’s courageous decision to fulfill his campaign pledge and withdraw the US from the calamitous Iranian nuclear deal sends an unequivocal message to Iran that the forces for world peace will no longer permit the rogue nation to continue on the path of instilling fear and unrest around the globe,” said Rabbi Mendy Mirocznik, the executive vice president of the RAA/Igud HaRabbonim.

Mirocznik continued: “For many years, Iran has been threatening the sovereign state of Israel with annihilation and its citizens with mass murder. Iran is the primary financial sponsor of reprehensible terror networks, including Hezbollah and Hamas, whose raison d’etre is the murder of Jews and Westerners throughout the world. For these reasons and much more, the Iranian government has flouted international law. We encourage other countries to follow the United States’ lead and to impose severe sanctions on Iran until it ends its reign of terror around the world and particularly in the Middle East.”

May He who makes peace in His heavens, make peace for us and for all Israel, Amen.
