We, the undersigned members of the Shelter Rock Jewish Center in Roslyn, New York, call on our American political leadership to support our president’s pledge not to permit Iran to acquire nuclear weaponry. The Iranian leadership has on many different occasions spoken about annihilating Israel and Israel’s six million Jews. We take those threats seriously, having learned the Holocaust's lesson that it is never sound policy to dismiss the rhetoric of genocide as mere bluster. Like all peace-loving citizens, we have hoped for years that diplomacy and severe sanctions could dissuade the Iranians from pursuing the manufacture of nuclear weapons. But we see no convincing evidence of success. Therefore, we feel obliged to add our voice to the chorus of concerned citizens eager that our country stick to its promise to take nothing off the table, and to do whatever it ultimately takes to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear power.
