NEW VIDEO: Justice for Victims of Iranian Terrorism
A House vote will require Iran to compensate victims of state-sponsored terror before it sees sanctions relief
Next week, the House of Representatives will vote on the Justice for Victims of Iranian Terrorism Act.
The new video below tells the story of Chief Petty Officer Robert Stethem, murdered by Iran-backed Hezbollah in 1985, and urges Congress to tell Iran it will not see one cent in sanctions relief until it pays damages to its victims.
Courts have handed down more than 80 judgments against Iran for its support and sponsorship of terrorist organizations, totaling more than $43 billion in damages. But while those victims await the compensation they’re due, Iran stands to reap a windfall of more than $100 billion if sanctions are lifted under the administration’s nuclear deal.
