While accepting the “Defender of Israel” award from the World Values Network at the Champions of Jewish Values International Awards Gala last Thursday, Republican presidential candidate
brought up relations with Iran in front of a very pro-Israel crowd.
Cruz called the nuclear deal with Iran “catastrophic and disastrous,” declaring that the next president, no matter who it is, will need to “immediately reimpose sanctions on Iran” and Iran will either need to stop acquiring nuclear weapons or America will stop them.
“The single greatest threat facing the national security of Israel and facing national security of America is the threat of Iran acquiring nuclear weapons. I’ve been proud to join with Senator Menendez; with other members of the senate, standing to fight to stop a catastrophic, a disastrous Iranian nuclear deal. ”
