Schaer Applauds Menendez’s Stance Against Iran Deal

SchaerAssembly Budget Committee Chair Gary S. Schaer (D-Bergen/Passaic) on Tuesday applauded U.S. Senator Bob Menendez for his bold and thoughtful opposition to the proposed deal regarding Iran’s nuclear weapons:

“I applaud Senator Menendez for his thoughtful and measured approach to this agreement. He has taken the time to study all of the complexities to thoroughly understand the impact this proposal will have on both our short and long term security.

“While I appreciate the Obama administration’s commitment to diplomacy, I have grave concerns about the proposed deal and its long-term impact on stability both in the region and globally, particularly its ability to protect the security of the United States, Israel and our allies.

“It is with this in mind that I appreciate, all the more, Senator Menendez’s bold stance on this issue.

“The lack of assurance that Iran will not be able to cover up any furtive activity prior to the arrival of inspectors, coupled with the financial incentives Iran stands to gain, raises additional concerns over the ability we will have to curtail Iran’s nuclear capabilities in order to sufficiently limit any threats to global peace.

“The proposal is further complicated by a historically justified distrust of Iran’s leadership. Time and time again, Iran has lied about its intentions, supported terrorism financially and otherwise, while disregarding the basic tenets of human rights and international law.

“The magnitude of these concerns warrants serious and thoughtful scrutiny by every member of Congress. With so much at stake, I hope others will follow Senator Menendez’s lead.”

  1. Hey, Gary. Have you changed your position on same sex marriage yet? Or are you still making a Chillul Hashem?

  2. Hey, Gary. Took time out of your “busy” schedule passing such “important” legistlation for our “Religious Liberties”, to issue an “endorsement” of a Ranking Senior Senators position?! Please learn your place and continue counting your own votes.

  3. Dear Gary Schaer,
    Thank you very much for your support against the proposed deal regarding Iran’s nuclear weapons. It is very important to know your opinion. Your opinion is count. We, residents of Bergen/Passaic County, all appreciate your entire amazing job as the Assembly Budget Committee Chairman and as the valuable member of the Kechilla. Many thanks.
    P.S. Couple of words about comments #1 & #2 posted above: It is clear that these comments were fabricated by the same person “nebach” even he posted under the different names. The author of the comments is angry at himself and cannot sleep. The author believes that saying “Loshen Chora” would not effect on him – WRONG! The author believes people cannot figure out his name – WRONG! The author believes he does not need medical help – WRONG! 27 days left before Yomim Noraim and the author should ask a Mechila from Mr. Schaer. It is not too late!!!!

  4. Dearest Hershel,
    Maybe we don’t live in the same county, but my children’s schools don’t have security. My taxes have gone up under Scherly Temple through the chimney. My spanish neighbors live ten families to an apartment while i send their kids to school. Their kids ride our bikes. Our shul has a hard time getting permits to expand. and Garry Drives his lincoln to Trenton while i drive my kids to school. But maybe it could be worse. Its definitely bad.
