Face it people, Iran will get nukes. It would be far easier to reach an accord with Iran than it would be to end the "threat" of Iran. - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    Peaceful accords could be reached with Iran, Syria, Hamas, and Hizbollah if Israel withdrew from the settlements and the Golan. Such a withdrawal is also favored by the entire world including America. Israel can have settlements in a high risk environment or they can withdraw to Israel's borders, make peace, and have a much lower risk. Right wing Israelis spin this, saying that Israel will never be accepted by Islamic extremists. This attitude is convenient to continuing their profit by settlement expansion. If the truth be told, the key for Israel is not eliminating the security risk. That's impossible. The key is in decreasing the security risk. That is certainly possible but Israel is not interested.
