June Topic:  “Fatal Attraction – Biden and Nuclear Iran – Implications for Israel and the Region”

Monday June 14, 2021, 7:30PM

Major question - Were the Hamas missiles raining down on Israel provided by the Mullahs in Iran, and funded by money paid during the Obama-Biden years?

Her program to take the cadets and midshipmen of America's service academies to Israel for a three-week work/study program permitted hundreds of future officers to have a positive, in-depth experience in Israel.

Tonight’s Topic:

For reasons not well understood outside the Biden-Harris “brain trust”, the White House Democrats are working hard to restore the 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran. The U.S. under President Trump smartly exited this less than treaty worthy agreement in 2018 and applied instead a “maximum pressure” campaign to freeze the Iran regime and their global terrorist partners economically, financially, and politically. No more Obama-Biden pallets of cash falling from the sky for the Iranian Mullah Terrorists under President Trump. 

But Joe has a better idea. “Come on man”, why not remove many of the Trump imposed economic and financial sanctions to the point that Iran would find it advantageous to rejoin the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) negotiations in Vienna? Iran is playing hardball to date, so we can surely expect Joe, with help from former Secretary of State John Kerry, to cave to Iranian demands. With Iran moving closer to nuclear weapon capability, what are the strategic and national security implications for the U.S., Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the region?  Please join us for this important discussion with our knowledgeable speakers.     

Moderator- Dennis Melby

Dennis Melby, who is a former Party Chairman, Town Councilmember and Association President, will serve as moderator.
