Richard D. Heideman, who serves as legal counsel to American victims of terrorism committed by the Islamic Republic of Iran, said today of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Address to the Joint Session of Congress:

Heideman said: “Prime Minister Netanyahu today called it like it is: the Islamic Republic of Iran is the worst sponsor of terror in the world and cannot be trusted with weapons of mass destruction; Iran’s surrogates, Hezbollah, and other foreign terror organizations, have attacked the United States, Israel and the Jewish community of Argentina.
Various US federal judges have found the Islamic Republic of Iran liable for their acts of heinous murder and terror, assessing billions of dollars in judgments on behalf of American victims of terror.

It is time for the world to band together and hold the Islamic Republic of Iran responsible for their past and ongoing terror; to stand against and repel their threat of annihilation against Israel; and not to reward them with the ability to pursue weapons of mass destruction.

Richard D. Heideman, a noted public speaker, has appeared on numerous TV interviews including CNN, FOX, WUSA/CBS, i24news and other media, providing analysis and commentary.
