White House Asks Pro-Israel Groups to Tone Down Iran Sanctions Talk

The U.S. government is asking pro-Israel activists to reduce their public support for more sanctions on Iran just prior to another round of discussions on the issue between Iranian and world leaders. White House officials met with Jewish organizations including the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the American Jewish Committee, and the Anti-Defamation League on Tuesday.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, a pro-Israel official who attended the briefing said that the Obama administration does not “want the new [sanctions] to come out now.”

Additionally, the lobby group J Street said Tuesday that “moving forward with new sanctions now could severely undermine prospects for a diplomatic solution.” The statement “could have been written by the White House itself,” a source familiar with the meeting told the Washington Free Beacon .

Democrats in Congress have also drafted a bill designed to establish a panel to “review, assess, and make recommendations” regarding the prospect of increasing sanctions on Iran.

  1. J Street is a fraud; the only Diplomatic Solution will come out of the barrel of a gun, nothing less will stop Iran in its quest for the total destruction of all that is not of islam, namely their particular version of this suicidal submission doctrine of conquest.

  2. No way to tone down, the goverment has nothing to say about the public opinion, the US goverment should not forget what the Ayatollahs did to the US embassy in Teheran, US and Iran are state of war in Iran till now, there is no apology yet from the Iranian Ayatollahs.
