European diplomats have agreed in principle to ban Iranian oil imports to the EU. The decision is now in the hands of their governments, which are not likely to enact such a ban anytime soon.

The proud Iranians won’t sacrifice their nuclear ambitions because of an embargo. A ban would also be ineffective, as Iran could continue exporting oil to India and China, and on the black market. It could also re-export through Russia.

If Israel bought Iranian oil for years through Glencore, despite all the Muslim embargoes, how do we expect an EU embargo to work any better?

Yoram DanzigerThe Attorney General closed the case against Supreme Court Judge Yoram Danziger due to his innocence, even though Lador insisted on closing for the lack of evidence, in which case Danziger would have had to step down from the Supreme Court.

Now, Danziger clearly was not snow-white in the corruption scandal involving Bat Yam mayor Lahiani. As a private attorney who worked for Lahiani for two years and pocketed more than $200,000 in fees (plus various business deals), he certainly was tainted by the mayor’s corruption.

Indeed, it is hard to imagine any private attorney not being involved in some form of corruption, especially an attorney working with high-profile white-collar criminals. So either private attorneys should be barred summarily from the Supreme Court as a suspicious crowd, or their real-world experience should outweigh their previous dirty affiliations.

On the other hand, no private attorney has ever committed worse crimes against Israel than Supreme Court president Dorit Beinish, who routinely compromised state security to placate leftists.

A conservative Jew wanted for price-tag attacks (graffiti spraying and the like) was detained when he tried to enter the Knesset. The media quickly accused him of planning a price-tag attack in the Knesset, despite zero evidence that he intended to commit any crime.

Another three conservative Jews were arrested for the crime of stalking army forces. Oh no, they did not plan to sell information to Hezbollah. The youngsters simply watched the army to see when it was coming to destroy their hamlets (‘illegal outposts’), at which point they were to call their fellow protesters.
