Gemunder Center Iran Task Force Releases New "Scorecard" Report on the Final Deal with Iran


In Vienna on July 14, the P5+1 and Iran agreed on a final deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPA). This report analyzes whether the JCPA addresses the Task Force's questions and concerns about the framework agreement.

In May, President Barack Obama donned a yarmulke and spoke in a Washington, D.C., synagogue. He reminded his audience that Jeffrey Goldberg, a member of the congregation, once called him the "first Jewish president." He claimed to be flattered by the characterization. And perhaps he was-most Jews, after all, voted for him for president, and many Jews of Obama's acquaintance have sometimes seemed to care more about the well-being of Planned Parenthood than about the survival of the state of Israel.

JINSA Holds Expert Panel on the Final Deal with Iran 



On Wednesday, July 29, JINSA held a panel to discuss the final deal with Iran known as the JCPA. The panel included JINSA CEO Dr. Michael Makovsky, Iran Task Force member John Hannah, Iran Task Force member Dr. Ray Takeyh. Click the video to watch.

In his first Inaugural Address, President Obama offered an open hand to the Iranian regime. On July 14, announcing the nuclear deal that is the culmination of that overture, he shook a closed fist at the American people. The president is right about the historic nature of the deal: It is a catastrophic error, and an unforced one at that.

JINSA CEO Makovsky on Iran Ballistic Missile Program Unrestricted in The Weekly Standard

"President Obama has promoted the recently agreed Iran deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) as 'a comprehensive, long-term deal with Iran that will prevent it from obtaining a nuclear weapon.' There are many fallacies and ambiguities in this statement."

The Times of Israel Features JINSA's Impact in Geneva on UN Report

"According to Maj. Gen. (ret.) Mike Jones, former chief of staff of US Central Command (CENTCOM) and a member of the 2014 Gaza Assessment task force which submitted a report on the war commissioned by the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA), the Davis report insufficiently considered the evolving nature of conflict, in which non-state actors such as Hamas have gained the military capabilities so far reserved for standing armies."

JINSA in Newsday on Iran Negotiations


JINSA Senior Advisor Gen. Charles Wald, USAF (ret.) and member of JINSA's Gaza Conflict Task Force Lt. Gen. William Caldwell write that "a reminder that the United States maintains a credible military option of last resort against Iran's nuclear program might be just the push Tehran needs to agree to give up its nuclear ambitions peacefully."
