' ...even if the sanctions are approved, will they serve to dissuade a country that has persistently struggled to obtain nuclear weapons for 15 years, now that it is relatively close to achieving the ultimate goal?' The answer is, 'you're asking the wrong question', Mr Harel. It's not the country of Iran which needs dissuading - it's the government of Iran which does. That government has, for thirty years, maintained an unthinking, unyielding hatred for the West, and for America, Britain, and Israel in particular. But the recent election has shown us a likely majority of the Iranian people want moderation in both their domestic and foreign affairs. That majority, had it been allowed to freely elect a progressive, concilliatory government, would not see its country in the cross-hairs of the international community today. The West must be very clear in drawing this distinction, for the Iranian people have given blood enough demonstrating their own true wishes and hopes.
