When looking over the impressive and long list of former Israeli security and military personnel who support the Iran Agreement, it should be clear that not all Israelis agree with Prime Minister Netanyahu, his government, AIPAC, the Republican Party, and some Democrats.

Consider forwarding this list to your friends who are convinced that the Iran Agreement is a “bad deal” and Congress should vote against what took the P5+1 two years to negotiate.

This list was published in Haaretz and then posted on Washington’s Blog (www.washingtonsblog.org).
