Ameinu gathered rabbis to support Nuclear Iran deal.

Ameinu, a “social justice”-style Jewish organization, announced on Monday, Aug. 17, that it had gathered “340 rabbis from all streams of Judaism,” who signed their names to a letter to all members of Congress, urging support for the Nuclear Iran Deal.

The 340 rabbis congratulated the Obama administration for “successfully” bringing together the “major international powers to confront Iran over its nuclear ambition.”

The understanding of these rabbis is that should the agreement be rejected by Congress, “those sanctions will end. There will be no new negotiations, as the other member countries are fully in favor of this agreement and have not desire to re-negotiate.”

The rabbis state in their letter to members of Congress that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action “blocks Iran’s path to a nuclear Iran,” – something which is very much in dispute. The rabbis openly acknowledge that the Agreement “does not deal with Iran’s support for terror.” But that’s okay, according to these rabbis, because “that was never the purpose of these talks.”

The rabbis suggest that instead of worrying about the huge multi-billion dollar injection of money with which Iran will be able to support terrorism under this deal, the parties should pony up “additional resources” to deal with that issue.

But the biggest concern for the 340 Rabbis is that some people have been led to believe that the “leadership of the American Jewish community is united in opposition to the agreement.” Heaven forbid. Nope, these 340, all of whom are listed below, “fully support this historic nuclear accord.”

The following are the rabbis who signed the Ameinu letter:

  1. the Rabbis will be as responsible for the harm they’re causing the world (and not only Israel and the Jews), with their self-blinding angelism, as the Satmar for the destiny of the 300,000 Hungarian Jews it convinced to stay put, awaiting the Messiah, rather than move to what was then called Mandatory Palestine.

  2. It was a rhetorical question – and certainly a qualified rabbi’s position on foreign policy and defense should be credited. I don’t consider Reform and females as “rabbis” in the traditional sense – they’re generally more concerned with a progressive agenda than Israel

  3. I would be very, very curious to see how many of these so-called Rabbis are Orthodox Jewish Rabbis. Just because somebody calls themselves Rabbi, does not mean that they had a legitimate Orthodox Rabbinical ordination. And the ones who are not Orthodox, are very likely to be nothing but Political Leftists masquerading themselves as authentic Rabbis.

  4. These “Rabbis” are affiliated with J street. Ameinu is a left wing anti Israeli organization. They represent a fraction of Jewish affiliation. Consider it a publicity stunt to create the impression that Jewish rabbis support this genocidal deal.

  5. Dont believe the hype, the majority of stuff that is posted on social media are lies. And even if they found 340 Rabbis to agree with Obamas lame deal, they had to be paid off! 340 Rabbis is just a spit in the ocean of thousands that are here in the US.

  6. I abhor these comments regarding non-orthodox members of the Jewish community. Some of the most intolerant people I've ever met were orthodox rabbis. Your negative remarks regarding Conservative and Reform fellow Jews reflect your ignorance and intolerance . Get it yet???

  7. One Jew's Rabbi is another Jew's imposter. These people are the leaders of a segment of Jewry doomed for extinction by assmilation and alienation from the fundamentals of Yiddishkeit. Please be happy in your beliefs and lives but keep it America where it and you belong.

  8. Who really cares about these sad confused individuals. History has proven time and time again that there have been Jews who have served other "masters" against the main stream of Jewry. I need not remind everyone of those Jews who worked with the Nazi's in the "cleaning" out of the Ghetto's, and who selected other Jews for travel to the extermination camps. There are good and bad among all peoples and all faiths. Those "court" Jews and modern day "Kapo's" will eventually have to answer to a higher power. Now, I can only say,, "Father, forgive them; they know not what they do".

  9. What does this mean – “340 rabbis from all streams of Judaism"?

    Actually, from all streams of Judaism, this group represents less than 8% of all American Rabbis from all streams of Judaism.

    So, who are we talking about here – only the lunatic fringe, with unquestioning blind support for Obama!

  10. Yaakov has a point. Reform Judaism has one thing in common with xtianity. It's a pick and mix sect. Just forget the bits that don't resonate with you views. So it's quite OK to forget commandment 5 as old fashioned and irrelevant. No wonder orthodoxy doesn't regard it as Jewish at all. Maybe Judaism lite.

  11. Are you guys out of your mind? Have you forgotten part of the regular prayer "Next year in Jerusalem"? Are your faces that buried that you do not see the damage you have done and are doing? May G_D (if you still believe in him) strike you all!!!!
