SANCTIONS AGAINST ISRAEL

Part 4 of A NATION UNDER JUDGMENT? is posted below.

Interesting SAME DAY stories:

Reports: Obama mulling sanctions on Israel

Excerpt:

The possibility of sanctioning Israel for its ongoing construction sends a signal that the Obama administration is willing to go further in its denunciations of Israel then any previous White House.

At the same time, the White House is vigorously pushing Congress against passing new sanctions on Iran.

On the SAME DAY and 'touching' each other at Drudge Report the news that the United States is no longer the 1st economic nation in the world.



It’s official: America is now No. 2: Chinese economy overtakes the U.S.’s to become the largest

And curiously, the Free Beacon article notes that while Obama is 'mulling' sanctions for Israel, it is refusing to 'mull' further sanctions for Iran. Curious because whenever Obama has engaged with Iran in talks, his birth certificate often comes up in the news, and usually in the weirdest way. Well . . . his birth came up again yesterday, on the SAME DAY it was noted that he refuses to sanction Iran, Israel's mortal enemy. Screen capture from Breitbart:

Interestingly, the last few times that the 'birther meme' has been 'revived,' it has been Democrats, not Republicans, who have 'revived' it.

DEC 5: Swedish turmoil is a warning to Europe

Excerpt:

Sweden has long been an exemplar for other European countries on policy matters, whether its famed social model or how to deal with a financial crisis.

But this week’s political turmoil in Stockholm risks turning Sweden into a harbinger of the instability populist parties are able to wreak in Europe.
