Snap judgment

Snap judgment

Plus ca change, plus c’est la meme chose (the more things change, the more they stay the same). Six million Jews were killed during the Holocaust because European countries (and this country, thanks to FDR) refused to allow them sanctuary  from Hitler and his monsters. Will history be repeating itself for the six million Israeli Jews as Iran threatens the “ one bomb state,” while this country as well as the European countries, hungry for a financial relationship with Iran, are turning their backs on Israel ? As for the “snap back” provisions in the deal if Iran cheats, they’re a big joke.

Obama gave Europe control of the Iran “snap back” mechanism. Sanctions on Iran were always less popular in Europe than in the United States. European governments will be under great pressure not to look for Iranian violations and punish them with profit-busting sanctions all over again. Snap back is the last thing that’s going to happen in the event of an Iranian violation which is sure to happen.
