As time goes on, the threat of Iran acquiring nuclear weapons capability increases.  Many observers believe that 2010 will be a crucial year in the effort to prevent this development.  In 2009-2010, the IAI dramatically expanded its efforts to mobilize communities on the issue of Iran's nuclear weapons program.

U.N. General Assembly Is No Place for Hate


Press Release:

NEW YORK - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's address before the United Nations' General Assembly exuded arrogance and a general disregard for the truth, says a leading Jewish advocacy organization.
On Thursday, during his annual address before the United Nations' General Assembly, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, stated, among other ludicrous notions, that the United States orchestrated the September 11th attacks as part of a general Zionist conspiracy.
Dr. Conrad Giles and Rabbi Steve Gutow, chair and president, respectively, of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, today released the following statement criticizing Iran's President for his insensitive and belligerent remarks.
"We listened in disbelief as President Ahmadinejad once again proved why he is an antagonist of all those who seek peace in the Middle East and around the world.  Sadly, his comments that the United States orchestrated the September 11th attacks are not out of character for him.  His conspiracy theories and utter disregard for the truth is disturbing, and we question why the United Nations continues to give him a forum to voice his arrogant rhetoric and incite his followers against Israel and the United States.  The UN is no place for hate.  We strongly condemn his comments."
