THE FATE OF EAST JERUSALEM

Israel occupied East Jerusalem at the end of the 1967 War with Syria, Egypt and Jordan; the western half of the holy city had been captured in the 1948 Arab-Isareli war. Israel's occupation of East Jerusalem effectively put the entire city under de facto Israeli control.

Trump’s abandonment of the JCPOA is a major blow, but it need not be a fatal one. The agreement, after all, is not a bilateral deal between the United States and Iran — European countries as well as Russia and China also struck the deal and now have the opportunity to preserve the deal.

UNDERSTANDING LOCAL LOBBYING

At the local level, lobbying is more valuable to elected officials, because they have fewer staff than elected officials at the national/state level. Therefore, they need more information, more expertise, more constituent services, and more help in drafting ordinances, specifications, and other documents, all of which lobbyists are willing and able to provide at no expense, but with expectations of reciprocity.
