Americans for Peace Now

Americans for  Peace Now
Dear Neda,

Congress is now considering two pieces of legislation that will limit the Iranian regime’s ability to crack down on freedom of speech within Iran.

This is a great opportunity. Empowering the Iranian people must be a vital part of the American strategy to deal with the threat posed by Iran to Israel and to key American national security interests.

Here’s a bit of background on these two bills:

— HR 4301 – the Iran Digital Enhancement Act (IDEA) – would help give the Iranian people the high-tech tools they need to communicate online. It would also make it harder for the Iranian government to monitor or block Internet communications.

— HR 4303 – the Stand with the Iranian People Act (SWIPA) – would punish corporations that help the Iranian government stifle free speech. It would also allow American non-profits to provide humanitarian aid within Iran. And it would bar Iranian officials who have abused the human rights of the Iranian public from entering the United States.

Iran poses a threat to Israel and to America. Sanctions like these – that target the Iranian regime (and not the Iranian public) – should be one element of a broad U.S. policy that includes engagement.

Now is the time for action. What happens in Iran can have broad ramifications for Israel and for the future of the Arab-Israeli peace process.
