    ...to dictate the Israelis, whose state has been attacked so much by Iran (verbally and by the military of its allies), to play a passive role here. Iran doesn't even recognise Israel as a country and thus as no partner of negotiation in diplomacy. For Iran, Israel's interests are not worth being discussed. Israel's problems are not Joschka's, who would doubt about that? For him, Israel is only an American proxy anyway. To sum it up and express it in an exaggerated way, what Joschka tells here, is: "Israel, shut up." Weak people like me who have never been a soldiers, surely should not say: "Israel, it's time to make war on Iran." But this cannot not be true for you Joschka, our hero of the green party for that I voted in 1990 and 1994: cultural liberty, protection of the environment, of civil rights and pacifism, at least until Yougoslavia! Joschka, who became a professor in the USA without even having properly finished school. Joschka, you are a fighter! You always have been!
