Daybreak: Obama Inks Sanctions

Plus Bibi and Abbas disagree on talks, and more in the news

Print Email
President Obama signs the sanctions bill yesterday.(Saul Loeb/AFP/Getty Images)

• President Obama signed the sanctions that overwhelmingly passed Congress. They attempt to cut back on Iran’s financing and energy sector. [NYT]

• A more benevolent result of the flotilla incident is that, even among Hamas and Hezbollah, nonviolent resistance is in again. [WSJ]

• President Abbas wants progress on borders before direct talks; Prime Minister Netanyahu is ready for direct talks now. [NYT]

• Former U.S. Ambassador Martin Indyk says now constitutes “the most conducive environment for peace negotiations” since 2000. [WP]

• Prominent Jewish philanthropist Joan Arnow died. She and her husband, Robert, were particular supporters of UJA-New York and Shalom Sesame (!). [JTA]

• People in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood (c’mon, we must have some readers from out there; represent in the comments) sure do disagree about Israel! [WSJ]

Hamas and Hezbollah probably have the same will/wish that they had before. The “volent” in “benevolent” means “will/wish.” Hamas and Hezbollah are malevolent.

Dr. E.R. says:

Both Hamas and Hizbullah still wish to annihilate Israel.
They are very good pupils of Goebels : they cover their true aims by using the term “resistance” which to Westerners sounds legitimate.
Personally , I remember the Arab world shouting “EDBAH ALYAHOOD !!!” long before the state of israel even loomed in the horizon.
