President Joe Biden addressed the United Nations General Assembly this week and gave a disappointing signal that he is appeasing the tyrants of Tehran. Instead of getting tough, Biden weakly asked them to return to the failed nuclear deal.

Biden stood on the world’s stage on Tuesday and declared, “We are working with the P5+1 to engage Iran diplomatically and to seek a return to JCPOA. We’re prepared to return to full compliance if Iran does the same.”

The President’s words indicate that his administration’s earlier statements expressing a desire for a “longer and stronger” agreement are not reliable.

Our CUFI office in Washington stated, “The Biden administration either does not fully understand our adversaries in Tehran or is blatantly ignoring perils associated with continuing such an approach, all in an effort to achieve a hollow and dangerous political victory. The President and his team still cling to the fantastical idea that any deal with Iran that follows the same weak, unverifiable and comprehensive approach of President Obama’s now defunct Iran nuclear accord will bear any fruit. All evidence points to the contrary.”

America (and the UK for that matter) can and must do better than a return to a nuclear agreement that enabled Iran to surreptitiously maintain its nuclear program, openly support terror, develop more capable long-range missiles, buy weapons on the open market and subjugate its own people.

This noted, President Biden did say in his remarks, “our support for an independent Jewish state is unequivocal.” We welcome such statements, but actions speak louder than words.

Support for Israel includes not breaking bread with a tyrannical state – Iran – that is openly and resolutely committed to the Jewish state’s destruction. Likewise, unequivocal support for Israel demands the President to stand up to those in Congress who are bent on denying Israel the right and ability to keep her citizens safe from terror.

It may be easier to capitulate to demagogues and adversaries, but in the long run, it is a recipe for disaster. The President should heed to the voice of the American people and take a firmer line against Iran.

Strength is required and time will tell if those leading America are up to the challenge.
