A dark day for Jews around the world

The implementation of the Iran deal on Jan. 16 by executive action with the aid of the European Union and the blessing of the United Nations is a dark cloud that has settled across world Jewry and civilized nations as well. The forced normalization of Iran, the world’s largest sponsor of international terror, by lifting crippling sanctions that have kept Iran rightfully as a pariah state, was heralded by President Obama as his crowning foreign policy achievement. 

Iran will now receive more than $100 billion in sanctions relief after the International Atomic Energy Agency confirmed that Iran “fulfilled its obligations” by shipping out 25,000 pounds of enriched uranium and dismantling elements of its nuclear program. It was minutes later that the United States formally lifted sanctions on Iran’s banking, shipping and steel industries, to the salivating delight of European businesses eagerly waiting to cash in the piles of money Iran now has to influence European governments through business contracts.
