EMET is urging supporters and friends to join a massive rally at U.S. Capitol West in Washington, D.C. (the front grassy area in front of the Capitol building) on Tuesday, March 3, 2015 at 9:00 a.m., in support of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to the U.S. Congress. The Prime Minister will speak about the imminent danger of a nuclear Iran, which is an existential threat to Israel, and a massive threat to the U.S., Europe, and Sunni Arab States.
The interim deal between the P5+1 nations and Iran, and the repeated extensions of negotiations, have enabled the Iranian Regime to receive billions in sanctions relief, and continue building its nuclear program, including its weakest parts – bomb technology and the ballistic missiles. Iran can still produce enough nuclear material to fuel a bomb in as little as two months, reports show. In addition to the frequent Iranian threats issued against these nations, the Iranians are currently working on long-range ballistic missile systems that would only be necessary against Europe and the U.S.
It is Israel that is first in the line of fire of any potential Iranian nuclear weapons, yet the Israelis have not been able to have their voice heard, and were not even invited to participate in the P5+1 talks. We proudly support Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, as the duly elected leader of the people of Israel and an expert on the Iranian nuclear threat, to speak before the United States Congress. Please join the March 3rd rally in support of the Prime Minister’s speech.
