For those who have not been following the situation with Iran closely – especially how
Israel fits in – it might be somewhat surprising to learn that Israel is not all too interested in negotiating with Iran.
One might assume that Israel would want a peaceful resolution so both countries can leave in peace without a drop of blood shed in the name of stopping an alleged nuclear weapons program.
That assumption would be dead wrong, as Israel has completely ignored the fact that both U.S. intelligence agencies and U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta have said Iran does not have nukes and instead declared that talks with Iran are a “trap.”
Indeed, somehow they continue to act antagonistically towards Iran even when their own military chief admitted that Iran has not decided to begin developing nuclear weapons.
In what might be a shocking article for some, Barak Ravid wrote for Haaretz, “Israel views the talks, set to take place on May 23 in Baghdad, with some bitterness, perhaps even with hopes that they will fail completely.”
Recently information – much of which has so little credibility that even calling it “information” is a bit of a stretch – has surfaced which supposedly indicates that Iran is indeed pursuing nuclear weapons.
