President Donald Trump's sanctions on Iran have won the praise of the Zionist Organization of America, according to a statement from the organization's president, Morton A. Klein.

"The Trump administration's sanctions appear to be well thought-out and well-tailored to target three distinct networks actively involved in procuring equipment for Iran's ballistic missile program, and individuals involved in facilitating millions of dollars of cash transfers to Hezbollah," Klein's statement read.

Trump's administration imposed sanctions on dozens of business executives and officers connected with Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps, which U.S. legislators are pushing to designate as a terrorist group.

"The international community has been too tolerant of Iran's bad behavior," National Security Advisor Michael Flynn said after the announcement, according to The Wall Street Journal. "The Trump administration will no longer tolerate Iran's provocations that threaten our interests."

Klein also wrote ZOA supports Trump's suggestion military force against Iran is not "off the table," during a meeting with Harley-Davidson executives and union representatives.

"A credible threat of military force is an essential tool for persuading Iran to end its aggressive, dangerous nuclear-weapons-related ballistic missile program and worldwide terrorist activities," Klein wrote.

"ZOA strongly appreciates the Trump administration taking action to counteract Iran's continuing egregious and dangerous violations."
