How was Congress's compromise with the Obama administration on the Iran deal even possible? Because you-know-who gave the green light: ""This is an achievement for Israeli policy" --Israeli Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz : "[She] wears [a headscarf] ... for herself ... because she wants to be modest with her body okay? ... [The killing in Kenya and Syria are] not her doing that, that’s a minority of people not a majority. Have some respect.
