Call For Diplomacy!Posted: June 10, 2008
If Iran continues with its program for developing nuclear weapons, we will attack it. The sanctions are ineffective. Attacking Iran, in order to stop its nuclear plans, will be unavoidable. (Israeli Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz)
In the next 10 years, during which (Iran) might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them.” (Hilary Clinton)
Are you disgusted by the increasing rhetoric of world leaders calling for a military attack on Iran? Do you believe that the sane and realistic way to address this escalating conflict is through diplomacy and dialogue? Do you believe that both the US and Iran share common interests in a stable Middle East?
Then consider hitting the phones on June 10, which has been established as a National Call-In Day to Congress for Diplomacy with Iran. This effort has been organized by the Campaign for a New Iran Policy, and will include a “Time to Talk With Iran” event on Capitol Hill together with a nationwide mobilization encouraging citizens to call their Senators and Representatives to pursue dialogue, not war, with Iran.
Here’s a more uplifting quote – from Shirin Ebadi, the courageous Iranian human rights lawyer and 2003 Nobel Peace Laureate:
Right now, the most important thing is that the US does not militarily attack Iran or even threaten to attack Iran. A military attack will only bring further chaos to the region and worsen the situation for human rights and democracy in Iran. As the Campaign for a New American Policy on Iran is advocating through this event, the best way to resolve the situation is through direct dialogue at three levels – civil society, parliaments and heads of government.
