World Jewish Congress President Ronald S. Lauder mirrored skeptical remarks made by Israeli officials, saying "So far, this agreement is just a piece of paper. It is not a legally binding treaty, and there is no reason to trust Iran over its implementation. Tehran has a long history of misleading the world."

Lauder cites his concerns about the deal over Iran's anti-Israel and anti-American sentiments. "Last Friday’s government-sponsored ‘Quds Day’ rallies, in which the masses again shouted ‘Death to America’ and ‘Death to Israel,’ are a good example of why we shouldn’t be overly optimistic.”
