Congress should pass legislation this year to continue, or even increase, sanctions on Iran's nuclear weapons, sponsorship of terrorism and violations of human rights. Since Iran’s leaders continually incite genocide against Israel, Congress also should consider the “Genocide Abatement and Prevention Act (GAP Act)” that CIPAC has drafted to indict Iran's leaders and set innovative, new processes to prevent and abate actions to incite or commit genocide against any national, ethnic, racial, or religious group, at the first outbreak of any such actions.Read more
