    It is agreed that Iran is a rational actor. For all the doom and gloom that Israel portrays, an Iran with nuclear weapons will result in MAD, and that may in fact cool tensions in the region, as Israel will (presumably) stop beating the war drum so much. As an American, my concern is that the US's unconditional support of Israel will mean that Israel will launch a military attack anyways, and expect us to come in and fight the battle for them. Israel's policies have caused the situation to get worse and worse, and it seems that it is no longer interested in diplomacy, nor is it willing to make any concessions to achieve peace. They insist that "peace" be on their terms. Who can blame Iran for doing everything they can to obtain a nuclear weapon? It will be a big bargaining chip.

'Let's drop the illusion, settler leader Dani Dayan won't serve as envoy to Brazil'

MK Tzachi Hanegbi says Israel shouldn't waste time waiting for Brasilia to accept Dayan's appointment, and instead assign him to a diplomatic position 'in a capital no less important.'
