Conference of Presidents Applauds Increased Sanctions On Iran

New York, NY

Arthur Stark, Chairman, and Malcolm Hoenlein, Executive Vice Chairman/CEO of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, issued the following statement:

"We welcome increased sanctions and other strong measures led by the United States to counter Iranian aggression against Saudi Arabia and other US allies in the region. The Supreme Leader and his cohort must be convinced of the unified resolve to fight terrorism and extremism. Iran’s direct and indirect attacks undermining governments in the region, its support for radical terrorist entities, its aggression, must stop now. When Iran disrupts global oil supply for its nefarious purposes, the world must respond. Only strength and determination can deter their hegemonic goals.”
