if the peaceful resolution between Israel and the Palestinians would neutralize the Iranian leadership against the Jewish State. According to the Mullahs' recent statements and hostile rhetoric, they have not convinced the world that they don't really believe that their Prophet will return upon Israel " being wiped off the map of the Middle East." Such talk and development of nuclear weaponry do not go hand in hand unfortunately in this day and age. The average Palestinian is generally not in their league of thinking, and this Iranian regime is a new phenomenon to contend for the world. My father, an Iraqi born Jew, who's read all of A.B. Yehoshua's books and understood the region extremely well, would not agree with the final assertion Yehoshua makes regarding neutralizing Iran. However, I would like to believe and hope A. B. Yeshoshua is more correct.
