Iran war bill backed by zionist lobby

This confirms what the Iranians have known since the reign of Mohammed
Reza Shah and the Arabs since the days of Herzl, the zionists are
NOBODY's ally and are intent on attacking Iran for any reason.

Vote Yes – The Iran Threat Reduction and Syria Human Rights Act
Dear Representative,
We write in strong support of H.R. 1905, The Iran Threat Reduction and
Syria Human Rights Act of 2012. The legislation, authored by
Representatives Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Howard Berman, will be
considered by the House on Wednesday. We strongly urge you to vote YES.

In an effort to dissuade Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapons
capability, the House overwhelmingly passed in December the Iran Threat
Reduction Act which tightened sanctions on Iran. The version that has
now emerged from House-Senate negotiations includes the strongest set of
sanctions ever enacted to isolate any country with which we were not in
armed hostilities. H.R. 1905 incorporates legislative initiatives of
many members from both the House and Senate and will:

    place virtually all of Iran’s energy, financial, and transportation
    sectors under U.S. sanction. Companies conducting business with Iran
    in these sectors face losing access to U.S. markets;
    impose sanctions designed to prevent Iran from repatriating any
    proceeds from its oil sales, thus depriving Iran of 80 percent of
    its hard currency earnings and half of the funds to support its
    national budget;
    impose tough new sanctions on the National Iranian Oil Company
    (NIOC), the National Iranian Tanker Company (NITC) and Iran’s
    Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC);
    target Iran’s use of barter transactions to bypass sanctions, the
    provision of insurance to Iran’s energy sector, and the provision of
    specialized financial messaging services to the Central Bank of
    click here to learn more about the legislation and how it will raise
    the pressure on Iran.

In the past six months, the United States and our international partners
have substantially increased the economic pressure on Iran and engaged
in several rounds of talks with Tehran. Unfortunately, Iran has rebuffed
the opportunity for serious negotiations while stepping up the pace of
its nuclear program.

America and our allies must unite in a tough response to Iran’s
belligerent approach. We must continue to send a strong message to
Tehran that it will face unremitting pressure until it complies with its
international obligations and end its nuclear weapons quest.

We strongly support The Iran Threat Reduction and Syria Human Rights Act
(H.R. 1905) and urge you to vote YES on Wednesday.
