Rep. Gohmert Circulates Draft Resolution Approving Israeli Military Attack on Iran

A red alert from Americans for Peace Now and the National Iranian American Council:*

On 3/18/10 Rep. Gohmert (R-TX) began circulating a draft resolution (and seeking original cosponsors on that resolution), “Expressing support for the State of Israel’s right to defend Israeli sovereignty, to protect the lives and safety of the Israeli people, and to use all means necessary to confront and eliminate nuclear threats posed by the Islamic Republic of Iran, including the use of military force if no other peaceful solution can be found within reasonable time to protect against such an immediate and existential threat to the State of Israel.”

“The timing of the resolution coincides with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee‘s policy conference in Washington, DC,” observes the NIAC.


*  It should be noted that APN alerted us to this sooner than the NIAC.  To be sure, Dr. Trita Parsi fell flat on his face with his prediction of the imminent fall of the Islamic Republic, so he had to first pick himself up before he could begin to weigh in on such urgent matters as two Republicans’ refusal to wish “the Iranian-American community, as well as the Iranian people, a happy New Year.”  However, it is about time for bourgeois-liberal Iranian-Americans to prioritize the business of defending Iran from the Israeli and US governments.  Granted that their ambition is one day to take over the country and run it themselves, rather than just let it be, but there would be no country left to dream of taking over if they let the West destroy it, like Iraq.  As Dr. Nasser Zarafshan said, “Political systems come and go in a short period of time — what remains is society.  No one should let society be destroyed because of its government.”
