The public is united against the Iran deal

The accord will help Iran buy weapons and fund its meddling in the region.

Contrary letter writer Ray Gordon's claim, the American public, retired military officers and major Jewish organizations all have opposed the Iran nuclear accord by substantial margins ("If Israel doesn't like the Iran deal, too bad," Sept 9).

In particular, the military realizes the deal helps Iran fund its weapons programs and terrorist activities, including long-range missiles and aircraft.

For these reasons they have overwhelmingly rejected the pact. With the exception of an inbred State Department, both retired and current, owing allegiance to the president, the response to the Iran deal has been uniformly unfavorable.

It is noteworthy that the author makes statements without credible facts. Unfortunately the numbers do not back him up regarding the response to the Iran deal.
