The Real Test of the Iran Deal http://ow.ly/QeB0e James Fallows in The Atlantic
If you favor an agreement that guarantees Iran will never build nuclear weapons, you are against any real-world solution.

Should rabbis really be wading into the debate over the Iran deal? http://ow.ly/Q2zDY A strong piece fm Rabbi Jill Jacobs @truahrabbis
Centrifuges, sanctions and fissile materials weren’t covered in rabbinical school. But that doesn't mean Jewish leaders should ignore the news.

ICYMI 5 Reasons AIPAC Is Dead Wrong about the Iran Deal http://ow.ly/Q2psJ
AIPAC's assessment of the Iran deal is deeply flawed. Its recommendations to Congress are even worse.

A bad deal? Diplomacy saves Israel from taking military action against Iran http://ow.ly/PZJMC
The Vienna deal prevents the introduction of a new nuclear power in the Middle East, halts the nuclear arms race and saves Israel from using military force on Iran. So why is Prime Minister Netanyahu…

No, Jesus was not a Jewish settler. He was a rabbi for human rights http://ow.ly/QbuPP @bradleyburston Thanks for the shout-out to my peeps @PeaceNowUS @peacenowisrael @rhreng @truahrabbis
If Jesus were alive today, living in the Holy Land, where would you go about looking for him? Michael Oren quoted as saying Jesus today would be considered a West Bank settler.

To know Netanyahu is not to love him http://ow.ly/Q5OPD Who cares if he's fun to hang out with; it's his policies that matter.
According to my colleague Benny Ziffer, the only way to assess a public figure is to yank him out of the public sphere. What nonsense.

Israel Security Establishment Breaks With Bibi on Iran Deal http://ow.ly/PZVK7 an important piece from @jj_goldberg in @jdforward
Israel’s political leaders have lined up against the Iran deal. Not so its security establishment, which is urging Benjamin Netanyahu to work with the U.S. rather than fight a quixotic battle to scuttle the agreement, J.J. Goldberg reports.

Story
Tagline
Believe in Israel. Believe in Peace.
Introduction

The Israeli Peace Now movement, Shalom Achshav, was established in 1978, when 348 Israeli senior reserve army officers and combat soldiers came together to urge their government to sign a peace treaty with Egypt. They knew then what remains true today – real security for Israel can be achieved only through peace. In the years since its establishment Shalom Achshav has worked for the achievement of peace agreements between Israel and all her Arab neighbors, and has come to be recognized, both in Israel and abroad, as Israel’s leading grassroots, Zionist movement. Best known for mobilizing mass demonstrations, for many years Shalom Achshav has also been the only group conducting comprehensive monitoring of Israeli settlement activity in the West Bank (and the Gaza Strip, until Israel’s 2004 evacuation of Gaza settlements). Shalom Achshav is widely cited in the Israeli and international media as the foremost authority on settlements.

Americans for Peace Now (APN) was established in 1981 to mobilize support for the Israeli peace movement, Shalom Achshav (Peace Now), and has since developed into the most prominent American Jewish, Zionist organization working to achieve a comprehensive political settlement to the Arab-Israeli conflict.

We are the leading voice of American Jews who support Israel and know that only peace will ensure Israel’s security, prosperity and continued viability as a Jewish, democratic state. Positions advocated for more than two decades by APN and Shalom Achshav – like calling for the evacuation of settlements and the creation of a viable Palestinian state – are now recognized by most American Jews and Israelis as basic requirements both for peace and for a secure future for Israel.

APN is a non-partisan organization with a non-partisan mission. We supply timely information and education, providing a pro-Israel, pro-peace, American Jewish perspective on issues and legislation. APN also engages in grassroots political activism and outreach to the American Jewish and Arab American communities, opinion leaders, university students and the public at large. We further promote our agenda through press releases, editorials and personal contacts with journalists, serving as a respected source of balanced information, analysis, and commentary.
