On Sunday, I joined Kansans who share an interest in what takes place in Israel at Congregation B'nai Jehudah in Overland Park to talk about current events in the Middle East. The United States and Israel are both threatened by Iran's attempt to build nuclear weapons. While recent sanctions imposed by the United States and our European allies have decreased Iran's oil output and caused a sharp decline in the value of Iran's currency, Iran continues to enrich uranium. With enough low-enriched uranium to build at least five nuclear weapons as well as the expansion of an underground enrichment facility, time is running out to stop Iran. I spoke to Kansans about recent activity in Congress to increase pressure on Iran and to expand American security cooperation with Israel. Thanks to Kansas City Israel Action Forum Co-chairs Debbie Graham and Carol Katzman and all those who worked to make this event happen.
