Another nail in the sanctions coffin

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu may still believe that sanctions against Iran can work, but it doesn't appear like they're going to be given a chance. Not if British Foreign Secretary David Miliband (pictured) gets his way.
Miliband told Britain's parliament the US offer "represents the best chance Iran will ever have to normalize its relations with the rest of the world and above all to normalize its relations with the US"

Asked how long Britain would wait before seeking more United Nations' or European Union sanctions against Iran over its nuclear program, Miliband said: "Now is not the time to be rushing for more sanctions."
And when will it be time in Miliband's book? After Iran obtains nuclear weapons?

That is why Israelis are offended at the European haughtiness and hypocrisy. Europe wants Israel to accommodate the Palestinians but Europe won't even accommodate Israel's concerns on Iran. So why should Israel's new government please a Europe that is not going to peacefully stop the greatest threat the West has ever faced when it can do so? And as I mentioned a few posts ago about what Amnon Rubinstein wrote in the Jerusalem Post to the effect Israelis live under a virtual siege that will never be lifted. Instead of standing beside Israel and helping Israelis to feel they have true friends in the world, Europe wants to throw Israel to the wolves in the Muslim World.
