Scholars Support the Iran Nuclear Agreement

As scholars and professors, we call upon Congress to approve the nuclear agreement with Iran.  We join the 46 retired Israeli generals and security experts, 26 prominent past and present Jewish community leaders, 440 rabbis, and the majority of Jewish Congresspeople who have already expressed their support for the agreement. In this agreement Iran forswears further development of nuclear weapons, commits to significant reductions in its current nuclear capabilities and agrees to intrusive inspections.  This agreement, if approved, will greatly reduce the chances of war with Iran and will enhance the security of Israel.  A failure to approve this agreement will be a signal to the world that the US is not serious about avoiding war.
