Haaretz: U.S. Jews torn over Trump’s exit from Iran nuclear deal

May 9, 2018

The Jewish Democratic Council of America issued a statment criticizing Trump for his decision, calling it “a mistake of historic proportion.” The organization added: “There is no doubt that the deal has limitations, including focusing narrowly on Iran’s nuclear program to the exclusion of the country’s other harmful behaviors. But, let us make no mistake, the accord has prevented a nuclear armed Iran.” According to the group, the U.S. withdrawal “sets us apart from our friends even more, and makes us appear weak and erratic. As a result of the President’s decision, the U.S. will be isolated – not Iran.”
