Polis - Goldberg - Bennet

“No Daylight” Bennet, Polis, Goldberg Agree

Polis - Goldberg - Bennet

Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO) and Congressman Jared Polis (D-CO) sat down with Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic and Rabbi Josh Rose of Congregation Har HaShem to discuss Iran, Israel and the US on Sunday at Har HaShem.  Goldberg was Har HaShem’s Scholar-in-Residence this weekend, and this talk in front of a hundred or so community members capped his three-day visit to Boulder.

One of the key statements that all agreed upon was that there is “no daylight” between the US and Israel on Iran obtaining nuclear weapons capabilities. Senator Bennet went on to state that either party trying to use this particular issue in a partisan way during this election year only muddies what should be a clear and consistent message to the Iranian regime that whoever wins in November, US policy on this issue will be firm and unchanging.
