America is debating the pros and cons of the Iran nuclear deal.  Some influential legislators, including Michigan Senator Gary Peters, are still making up their minds. They might be swayed by retired Israeli general Uzi Eilam, who is in Detroit to explain why he supports the controversial accord.   

Arguably the most pressing issue currently before the U.S. Senate and House is whether to support the Iran nuclear accord. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been a vocal opponent of the accord.
