Put some teeth into Iran divestment

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/opinion/article/put_some_teeth_into_iran_divestment_20110202

Today was a difficult day. I met with Iranian dissidents, former political prisoners who had been tortured by the current regime. Seeing their scars was particularly difficult for me. But the stories of these people just personalized for me what I already understood about modern-day Iran. This is a government that executes a person every eight hours. That backs terrorists throughout the region and the world. That has made statements about Israel that are immensely disturbing.
