Arlene from Israel – How Many?

How many times can I write about the P5+1 negotiations with Iran and demonstrate how Obama has caved even further?  How outrageous and terrifying and jaw-droppingly perverse it all is? The new deadline for completion is tomorrow, July 7th.  And so I must return to this subject once again.  I …
