Dan Shapiro, the former U.S. ambassador to Israel during the Obama administration, has resigned from the U.S. negotiating team involved in talks with Iran about a potential return to the 2015 nuclear deal.

Despite his ambassadorship being over, Shapiro continues to live in Israel where he has conducted research work at the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv.

Last August, Shapiro was appointed by the State Department to the negotiating team as the liaison to Israel, which his job focusing on coordinating with the Jewish State on Iran’s aggressive actions throughout the Middle East.

Shapiro isn’t the first official to resign from the U.S. negotiating team. In January, three team members quit in protest of excessive concessions being granted by the U.S. to Iran, with the Biden administration agreeing to practically anything Iran wants so long as they rejoin the deal.

Once of the major concessions of concern is the United States’ willingness to remove the Iran Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) – the largest state-sponsored terror group in the world – from its list of terror organizations.

  1. It has become very clear that Biden is with the enemy, not with America, not with Israel, not with morality, not with justice. We need to vote out of office anyone that shares his ideology.

  2. Some context:

    > Contrary to reports suggesting Shapiro left the administration over disagreements on Iran policy, he told
    > Jewish Insider on Tuesday that he is “absolutely not” leaving because of any policy differences. “There’s no > story there.”
    > …
    > Limiting Iran’s nuclear ambitions requires a return to the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, which is currently being > negotiated in Vienna, in addition to regional security cooperation, Shapiro argued. He hopes to continue to > work toward both, even after he has left the State Department.
