Daybreak: Sanctions Bill Passed

Plus the all-religions yeshiva, and more in the news

Brooklyn’s Hebrew Language Academy.(

• The Senate and House both passed a reconciled Iran Sanctions Act by overwhelming margins, setting it up for President Obama’s expected signature. AIPAC and J Street praised the votes. More on the soon-to-be law later today. [Laura Rozen]

• Israeli President Shimon Peres argued that the rest of the world should engage with Hamas to press it to renounce terrorism. [WP]

• The Hebrew Language Academy, in Midwood, Brooklyn, is a state-sponsored charter school with many trappings of a yeshiva yet a totally diverse student body, including plenty of Nation of Islam adherents who now can chant Hebrew. [NYT]

• For the first time since the flotilla incident, Israeli planes hit Gaza spots, targeting a weapons cache and smugging tunnels. The strike came a day after a rocket was launched from Gaza into Israel. There were no casualties from either operation. [Haaretz]

• The U.S. State Department took a stand against sea-bound attempts at sending aid to Gaza. “Mechanisms exist,” a statement read. [JTA/Forward]

• The issue of Aharon Barak—the “activist” former Israeli chief justice whom Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan has in the past praised—is quickly ballooning into a major potental obstacle on her path to confirmation. Which is both funny and ridiculous. [NYT]

Dorothy Wachsstock says:

Any informed Jew will know that all of this support for Israel and against Iran will last until after the Nov. election.

Democrats know that the Jewish community has had it with them and are now joining the Republican Jewish Coalition.

We no longer trust these democrats that vote against our values in the United States and want it to be a communist state plus their support of Israel that only lasts till they get into office.

Anyone see a Press conference against the treatment of P.M. Netanyahu by this Muslim Presidant by any democrat? Only republicans showed outrage. Can anyone believe the lies in Obama’s speeches?

Why should anyone believe anything he says now? Pres. Obama and Speaker Pelosi have awakened sleeping americans as to what they stand for.

Not american citizens as they take away our freedom and liberty.
