The Horrific Iran Deal

Below is a letter that I wrote to my Congressman, Larry Bucschon, and both of my senators in Indiana, Senators Coats and Donnelly. "If you feel as strongly as I do about this horrific deal (I use that word "horrific" very sparingly.  It is well-deserved in this case!), I would encourage you...no, I implore you, to speak up against this deal.  Let your Congressmen know.  Write a letter to the editor.  Don't let this moment pass without doing something about it!  (By the way, you are most certainly welcome to use anything from this letter when you write.)

If you are not familiar with the facts of this agreement, I would encourage you to educate yourself.  I have included some resources at the bottom of this post that will help you be more informed about this.

Dear (Congressman/Senator),

There are many important issues facing you in Congress when you get back from August recess.  However, I believe there is nothing more important facing Congress than the vote on the Iranian nuclear agreement.  This is very likely the most important vote that you and your colleagues will ever make.  It could be the most important vote in Congress of the decade.  Perhaps even of the century.  It is that important.

It’s hard to even write these words, but our government has made an agreement with a radical terrorist state.  A state that is the prime sponsor of terrorism in the world.  Worse than Al-Qaida.  Worse than Boko Haram.  Worse even that the Islamic State.  With this agreement in place, Tehran will have $150 billion dollars at its disposal, which it will most certainly use to fund its vast terror network.  The Iranian regime has vowed for decades to annihilate Israel.  No other nation in the world has publicly stated as one of its goal to annihilate another country.  We will be aiding and abetting Iran in its quest to destroy Israel.  We are in fact becoming an accessory to what could be one of the greatest crimes in the history of civilization.  God will certainly judge us for this. Not only this, but there is nothing in this agreement that prevents Iran from acquiring ICBM’s, which they are doing as I write this.  As you know, there is only one reason for a country to acquire Intercontinental ballistic missiles.  That reason is to send nuclear missiles to another continent.  Guess which continent Iran wants to send these missiles to?  It’s not Antarctica!  As much as Iran hates Israel, it hates the U.S. just as much.  Every Friday, the regime sponsors “Death to America” chants in its mosques.  They call Israel “The Little Satan”.  America is “The Great Satan”.

This deal is worse than Neville Chamberlain’s 1938 Munich agreement, which paved the way for World War II.  In 1938, no one knew of Hitler’s plan to annihilate the Jews in Germany.  In 2015, everyone knows that Iran desires to annihilate the Jews in Israel.  In 1938, nuclear weapons had not been invented.  The Iran deal of 2015 will actually pave the way for the fanatical regime in Tehran to get nuclear weapons.  (Although it could conceivably take fifteen years for this to happen…a time period Charles Krauthammer calls a young man’s idea of a long time!... I don’t believe that it will take nearly that long.) The Munich agreement of 1938 did not usher in a European arms race.  The Iran deal of 2015 is ushering in a Middle East arms race as we speak.

As a follower of Christ, I take the injunction of Genesis 12:3 seriously.  Speaking to Abraham, God says in this passage:

And I will bless those who bless you (Israel),
And the one who curses you I will curse
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.

I truly believe that one of the reasons that God has blessed America in the almost seventy years since the founding of the modern state of Israel is that, up until very recently, we have stood with Israel.  Tragically, since President Obama has taken office, we are now opposed to Israel in almost every conceivable way.  In fact, if this agreement takes place, we will be in the position of having to defend Iran against Israel if the Jewish state chooses to attack Iran to prevent its own destruction.  Words fail me to describe my revulsion at this thought!

Imagine if we could have done something to have prevented 9/11.  Well, we have the opportunity to help prevent a catastrophe that would be worse than a thousand 9/11’s.  Your vote against this deal is critical to the future of our country.  Indeed, your vote is critical to the future of civilization.  I implore you and your colleagues to vote a resounding “NO” against this unconscionable deal!

Sincerely yours,



Wayne Nall Jr
