Iran Uber Alles

At best, you could say that the left hand does not know what the right hand is doing in Germany. More realistically, it would seem as though the Germans are being duplicitous: At the same time as Chancellor Angela Merkel is promising that Germany will stand by Israel in any confrontation with Iran, German actions can lead to no other conclusion than that economic ties between Germany and Iran are strong and getting stronger, placing the Germans at odds even with their fellow Western European neighbours.

So long as countries such as Germany support Iran economically, the Iranian nuclear program will proceed.
