House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R – VA) expressed annoyance that his attempt at a resolution to derail Iran diplomacy failed last year, and announced today his intention to introduce a new resolution as soon as possible with roughly the same contents.
Unlike Senate bails aimed at derailing the talks by imposing new sanctions on Iran, Cantor’s previous bill aimed to dictate the terms of an “acceptable” pact, mirroring Israeli demands which would make such an agreement virtually impossible to negotiate.
The bill aimed primarily to demand Iran forever be barred from any civilian enrichment of uranium, something Iran has repeatedly ruled out, and if passed would insist President Obama not negotiate any deal that didn’t include this demand.
Cantor went on to declare Iran’s recent diplomatic efforts to amount to “aggression,” and insisted the House would move to stop them. Such a bill would almost certainly be vetoed by the Obama Administration, leaving open the question of whether he can amass enough votes to override it. With Israeli lobbies loudly endorsing anything that might kill the Iran talks, that number of votes may be possible.

Well I don't like Eric cantor because last year he visited Israel & called for a massive carpet bombing assault on Gaza on national television. He IS on my terror list & HE IS on my wanted serious threats to peace war criminals list. And I WILL attack him If I ever can or am able to, I repeat I will pick a fist fight with him if I can ever get near him in a public place & I will severely injure him, that I can guarantee you. On the article & subject of this matter, we need jihad against the Shias & against the Ayatollah Iranian mullah regime- they are backward, cause strife in the region with corruptions & conspiracies , & they are extremely cruel to women, Sunnis & other petty criminals & it's all because of their doctrine of Islam which follows Ali (who is a traitor, not a prophet). I don't like the Iranian Ayatollah regime mainly because of their barbaric involvement in the Syrian conflict & their habit of making propaganda, also their installment of Al-maliki regime in Iraq is illegitimate, all these Shiite leaders do or want to do is oppress Sunnis & cause them to suffer & slowly commit genocide on them. So if Cantor wants to fuck with Iran, be my guest- but leave gaza alone. Don't fuck with my people or I'm gonna fuck-up your face, you mark my words. Stay out of Palestinians' buisness cause y'all God damn dumb-ass Senators don't know what the hell you're talking about. Now Fuck-Off & go eat shit God damn you.
Is Cantor a dual Israeli/US citizen?
That is not the issue. He has a single loyalty – to Israel.

What do we have to do to get vermin like Cantor out of Congress?
This weasel should not even be allowed to voice his opinion in public. He is a traitor and should be deported.
First: no member of Congress shall have dual citizenship. Americans only.
Second: Term limits. How can we bring this issue to a vote? A national referendum? I am convinced that the majority of American voters will support term limits. Get trash like Cantor and his ilk out of here NOW!
True, but there shouldn't be such a thing as dual citizenship.
"Cantor went on to declare Iran’s recent diplomatic efforts to amount to “aggression,” and insisted the House would move to stop them."
By his own definition, Cantor's actions are aggression, and his aggression must be stopped. He will get a lot of Americans killed if he keeps this up, for no good American goal, and set back American interests.
And, his actions are also treasonous, aiding and abetting the enemy, Israel. Your statement, Mark, is spot on.
Cantor must be fired from his House post, rejected by both his colleagues and constituents, and prosecuted for High Treason, through his aiding and abetting Israel, America's mortal enemy and using his position as House Majority Leader in doing so. If convicted, he must spend the rest of his life behind bars, with no possibility of parole.
Cantor should resign as House Majority Leader, give up his US citizenship, and move to Israel. There he can run to become an MK from the Jewish Home party.
That's the thing, we never get to hear any rebuttals when these traitorous, terror-supporting, President-backstabbing, bought and paid for Israeli shills in Kongress open up the stupid holes in their faces. Their self-contained bubbles are never burst. They think everything they say is perfect and correct as they are never challenged openly and publicly; I for one would like to see a media that would pin this loathsome insect down with some penetrating follow up questions just to see him squirm.
But OUR media will just pat a little scumbag like this on the back instead.
But even when confronted they don't "squirm", they deflect and then accuse the questioner of being anti-Semitic. Every time, without fail. But they never squirm.
They seem to lack any sense of shame…a useful quality in a con artist.
He look young enough to lace up a combat boot and stand in the front line against Iran, or parachute his candy ass into Iran on reconnaissance mission.
I'd volunteer to pack his chute for him, being the nice guy I am…
I'd like you to do that for him. I'd like him to make a second jump if that's what it takes to get it right, but I hope one would do the job.
Mr. Cantor your dissonant chant will not be allowed for the service.
Virginia is a huge defense producer. I sure hope Cantor is just prostituting himself to help his state otherwise he is a traitor forgetting the people need help in hard times to help people who push for wars because their nations is the fourth largest producer of death machines. I sure hope Cantor is better than what it appears.
Poor Gaza. A foreign land invaded at least twice by overly armed soldiers. In 1955 Israel invaded Gaza in the lie about the Suez canal and murdered 39 police officer. Why does no one mention that Gaza is occupied unjustly and any attacks is people looking for freedom from thugs
Eric Cantor want to kill talks and people. Its disgusting. Talks that could prevent war should never be killed. Can one of our legislators introduce a bill that prevents dual citizens from serving in our government and military? This should be on a ballot this year. Enough is way past enough.
Jason Ditz jives with Iran regime again. How much? You even use same title as Tehran Times and regime mouthpiece Press TV.
Mr. Cantor has always been outspoken about his complete support for Mr. Nethanyahu and Israel. Whats to stop if other American citizens descendent from different countries would do the same for their preferred country?
If this kind of conduct becomes the norm then being an American citizen becomes a commodity period.
That's exactly what is happening. What do you think the priority of "Mexican-American" politicians is? Or the priority of "Cuban-American" politicians?
You are an absolute retarded hatemongering Salafi. You dare him to leave Gaza alone or else…yet what have you done for the people of Gaza. In fact, the same Ayatollah's you berate are the ones who started the Quds day protests and Iran has been aiding Gazans. Where are the Saudis and Qataris in their help. OH, I forgot, they are busy helping Muslim kill Muslim in Syria, Pakistan , Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, Sudan etc. and now have just turned their attention to Lebanon.
For all your pent up anger why don't you go and fight the Israeli forces.
The United States Of AIPAC.
Bibi commands and Cantor obeys.
Eric Cantor is more a lobbyist for Israel than a US Representative. Nothing he represents is American. He is advocating that the US violate the terms of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. The US is legally bound to HELP Iran develop peaceful uses for nuclear energy as long as Iran also abides by the terms of the treaty. They have. The US is also legally bound to NOT do anything to intimidate or threaten Iran under these conditions. Since this treaty has become the highest law of the land, Cantor is promoting a violation of US law as well as international law.
