The STOP IRAN NOW MEGA RALLY in Times Square last night was simply amazing. More than 12,000 concerned people from all over the world came together to protest the terrible deal 'negotiated' by John Kerry and gang.
Speaker after speaker warned of the dangers of the deal. Alan Dershowitz, Caroline Glick, Steve Emerson, Allen West, and more than a dozen others, informed and inspired us as they used the freedoms inherent in our Constitution to state the truth -- that the deal with Iran is a danger to the US, to Israel, and to the entire world, and that the Obama administration is engaged in an act of desperation bordering on treachery.
The coverage of the rally was widespread. Here are a few links to articles:

As good as the rally made us feel, we cannot and must not rest on our laurels. The hard work is just beginning. Congress has received a copy of the deal, and after review, will vote on it within 60 days. We must continue to pressure our elected officials to vote against the deal.
Just this morning, Assemblyman Dov Hikind, AFSI Executive Director Helen Freedman, and several other brave individuals were arrested while keeping the pressure on Schumer, protesting outside of his Manhattan office.

WE MUST CONTINUE TO ACT AGAINST THIS TERRIBLE DEAL!
We have posted the following action step for the past several days and will continue to do so.
PLEASE CALL U.S. SENATOR CHUCK SCHUMER AND YOUR LOCAL CONGRESSPERSON - and ask all your family and friends to call today and every day - TO URGE THEM TO VOTE DOWN THIS ACCORD IN WASHINGTON, DC.
We do need you to call every Representative of every political persuasion. While the GOP is virtually unanimous against the Accord, we still need the Democrats to bring this up to a 2/3 majority.
Call Senator Chuck Schumer (or your US Senator from your own state if you don't live in NY) and your local Congressperson to demand that they lead the fight against the Accord:
Call Senator Chuck Schumer at:
Albany (518) 431-4070
Binghamton (607) 772-6792
Buffalo (716) 846-4111
Melville (631) 753-0978
New York (212) 486-4430
Peekskill (914) 734-1532
Rochester (585) 263-5866
Syracuse (315) 423-5471
Washington (202) 224-6542
Call your local Congressperson:
SUGGESTED WORDS TO SAY ON YOUR CALL:
My name is (your name) _____________ and I am your constituent. I am calling to urge (name of person you are calling) _________ to vote AGAINST the Iran Nuclear Accord. The proposed agreement guarantees that Iran will have the capability to produce nuclear weapons. The proposed agreement guarantees nuclear proliferation in the already destabilized Middle East. I am counting on your vote to reject this deal with Iran. A vote FOR the deal with Iran is a vote against the security of the United States, a vote against our ally, Israel, and a vote to reverse our policy against nuclear proliferation. Thank you.
