... without nuclear warheads, Iran’s missiles do not represent a grave threat and Iran is prevented by the JCPOA from acquiring a nuclear warhead capability for at least 15 years.—18 U.S. National Security Leaders
They want to have [intercontinental ballistic missiles] that can reach your country. That’s what they’re working on right now. Remember, you’re the Great Satan [to them]... They believe that they’re destined to govern the world. Anybody that doesn’t agree with them, they’ll be able to subjugate or kill, and they’re working on the means to achieve that.—Benjamin Netanyahu
Our country’s immigration policy must reflect values of human decency, and be true to the promises America makes to the world: acceptance of the tired, hungry, huddled masses, those escaping political persecution, migrant workers on whose back the American economy is built, and the heartbreak of our generation — refugees from war torn Syria and Yemen.—Firuzeh Mahmoudi, United4Iran Director
This is not just limited to the United States; in my country hardliners are the same. For years on both sides of the ocean, groups of hardliners have tried to present to their people unrealistic and fearful images of various nations and cultures in order to turn their differences into disagreements, their disagreements into enmities and their enmities into fears. Instilling fear in the people is an important tool used to justify extremist and fanatic behavior by narrow-minded individuals.—Aghar Farhadi
It is possible to persuade the incoming president to act to curb Iran’s activity in the production of ballistic missiles, its regional subversion and its aid to terror organizations. But precisely the act of cancelling the agreement will negate the legitimacy of our positions in the international community. When a conflict with Iran develops, the other powers will blame us for dragging Trump into doing this. They will not come to our aid.—Amos Yadlin, former Israel Military Intelligence Chief
If I had told you that we would open up a new chapter with the Cuban people, shut down Iran’s nuclear weapons program without firing a shot, and take out the mastermind of 9/11… you might have said our sights were set a little too high. But that’s what we did. That’s what you did.—Barack Obama
The JCPOA does not take any options off the table for you or any future president. Indeed it makes it much easier for you to know if and when Iran heads for a bomb. It provides both time and legitimacy for an effective response. Our technical judgment is that the multilateral JCPOA provides a strong bulwark against an Iranian nuclear-weapons program. We urge you to preserve this critical U.S. strategic asset.—Top U.S. scientists
[Former Austrian Ambassador to Tehran Michael] Postl noted that he had asked someone close to [Majlis Speaker Ali] Larijani whether he was aware of the rapes of [2009] election-related prisoners. The interlocutors said that not only was Larijani aware, but all officials were aware of what was going on inside the prison.—US Amb. Glyn T. Davies
It is all a dismal picture. Late last night, as the results were coming in from the last states, a friend called me full of sadness, full of anxiety about conflict, about war. Why not leave the country? But despair is no answer. To combat authoritarianism, to call out lies, to struggle honorably and fiercely in the name of American ideals—that is what is left to do. That is all there is to do.—David Remnick, Editor, The New Yorker
US security cooperation with Saudi Arabia is not a blank check... In light of this and other recent incidents, we have initiated an immediate review of our already significantly reduced support to the Saudi-led Coalition and are prepared to adjust our support so as to better align with US principles, values and interests, including achieving an immediate and durable end to Yemen's tragic conflict.—U.S. National Security Council Spokesman Ned Price
