Iran Oil Embargo

After the climate change summit in Durban, the EU once again demonstrates its strong international influence. It is expected that EU foreign ministers will agree on an oil embargo against Iran by the end of January. This is a promising signal of our common foreign political power. We are finally getting there. Yet, no German or European newspaper seems to care. Meanwhile the Germans endlessly discuss their scandalous president, the Portuguese are batting about a total ban on smoking indoors, and the Economist worries about the future of our financial capital – the City of London. Thrilling stories, sure. The only paper featuring the issue on its title page is the Jerusalem Post. Get excited about our common foreign politics, Europeans!
