[Article submission] US aircraft sales to Iran blocked by House

Dear Professor Wolff, I'm not sure if you have seen this amazing story from last Saturday's Guardian, so I thought I would send it on to you to consider for future updates. My first thought after reading the story was "holy cow", could this portend a coming re-alignment of lobbying forces in the US. Is it possible that, for the first time we could witness a battle of the titans, with the Israeli lobby coming face to face with corporate America, not to mention the possible implications for EU-Israel relations. Imagine this question being asked to the candidates in the upcomming presidential debates: "Do you support the recent House of Representatives legislation blocking Boeing's $25bn passenger aircraft sale to Iran and it's consequesces for Airbus's deal to sell Iran 118 aircraft?" https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/jul/09/us-aircraft-sales-iran-blocked-jeopardising-25bn-boeing-deal Keep up the great work.
