    Nord Stream 2 is Germany’s—and Europe’s—Achilles’ Heel

    The completion of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline deals Russia several cards that weaken Germany, divide Europe, and blackmail Ukraine. If the EU is to engage globally, it must stop serving as Moscow’s playground.

    Judy Asks: Can Europe Do Anything to De-escalate the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?
