At the Stop Iran Rally, Dershowitz makes an appeal to fellow liberals, calling on them to side with Republicans on the Iran Nuclear Agreement. He reiterates Pataki’s message stating that Obama should have given the draft of the agreement to Congress for review before going to the U.N.
It is a bad deal for Democrats. It is a bad deal for liberals. I am here opposing this deal as a liberal Democrat. [This deal is] bad for America, bad for world peace and bad for the security of the Middle East.
Prior to the rally, Pataki accuses President Obama of violating his oath of office — under the law Obama should have taken the agreement to Congress to allow them to review it before taking it to the United Nations Security Council. Congress has 60 days to review the agreement.
That showed tremendous disrespect for the US Congress and it was an active betrayal of Israel, our strongest ally in the Middle East…In no way does this deal change Iran’s attitude to America. During the negotiations it was calling for ‘Death to America’. There are dozens of legitimate reasons to reject this deal. It allows for hundreds of billions in [sanctions] relief, the lifting of sanctions on conventional arms, all while Iran keeps supporting terror around the world.
At the rally:
This isn’t a bad deal, it’s a God-awful deal, it must be rejected. Congress must do its job and stand up for the American people, stand up for our safety and say ‘no’ to this Iranian deal.
