War with Iran is not the answer.

Not again.

There’s a resolution on the Senate floor (Senate Resolution (SR) 65) that would pledge American support to Israel in the case of an attack on Iran. Not only would this be detrimental to the moving-at-the-speed-of-molasses international talks with Iran, but, more importantly, the United States cannot afford to expand the Global War on Terror (GWOT) and another Iraq.

Feel strongly about this?

Check out the Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL), who very cleverly named their advocacy initiative “Don’t ‘Iraq’ Iran”.

The National Iranian-American Council (NIAC) also provides some talking points to bring up to your Senator.

“Struggling Under the Sanctions”: Petition to Help Iranian Students in US Universities

Please consider signing this petition by the Public Affairs Alliance of Iranian Americans (PAAIA) to ask the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to allow Iranian students with F-1 visas – who are increasingly finding it difficult to pay their tuition given the depreciation of the Iranian rial due to sanctions – the opportunity to work off-campus, an ability that they do not currently have with those visas.
