The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews has launched a massive campaign to lobby against the Iran nuclear deal.
“The Fellowship,” as it is called, was founded in 1983 and has since raised over $1 billion to support Israel and the Jewish people.
The Fellowship’s current initiative, according to Breaking Christian News, involves reaching out to the American people through cable television, radio, and social media, encouraging them to petition Congress to reject the Iran nuclear deal.
In addition, The Fellowship is aiming to send 2 million emails to their allies nationwide.
The purpose of The Fellowship’s campaign is to capitalize "on the mutual understanding between Jews and Christians that Iran and its Islamic fundamentalist allies have been persecuting Christian and Jewish minorities in recent years and cannot be trusted to abide by international law."
Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, founder and president of The Fellowship, stated that "Both Christians and Jews must unite in order to counter the threat of radical Islam. We need that unity now more than ever to fight off the virulent hatred and violence threatening both our faith communities. A nuclear Iran would be a disaster of catastrophic proportions for the entire free world."
Eckstein added that, should the Iran nuclear deal be approved, Americans would face what he termed “a credible threat of annihilation,” which he says Israelis face daily.
