A “stop Iran rally,” called for Wednesday in New York, announced a speakers’ list of foremost anti-terrorism experts, military commanders and opinion-shapers.
The protest against the nuclear deal announced by President Barack Obama last week will take place in Times Square. Organized by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, it is aimed at lobbying key lawmakers — specifically Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) — to vote against the bill.
“Schumer has the votes as presumptive leader to override this deal if he wants,” said Jeffrey Wiesenfeld, a co-organizer of the rally. “To do anything less is cynical and disgraceful. … If this deal is not stopped, New York voters will know whom to blame.”
Speakers will include former CIA director James Woolsey, former Gov. George Pataki, former Manhattan DA Robert Morgenthau, Harvard law Prof. Alan Dershowitz, U.S. Navy Admiral James Lyons, Mort Zuckerman, radio host John Batchelor, Caroline Glick of the Jerusalem Post and Col. Richard Kemp, former commander of the British forces in Afghanistan.
