Iran doesn't give a damn about palestinians. Iran, Saddam Hussain, Bashar Assad non of them care about the palestinians they just use them when it makes good propoganda. As for Syria Iran can drop Syria right now and it won't make the slightest bit of difference to its own political or military interests. Its Syria that gets its money & weapons from Iran not the other way around. iran looses Syria it will still be pointing missiles at Israel and developing its nuclear program full speed ahead. Doing a deal with Syria also will not end the Hizbollah threat because they are funded and work for Iran. Assad also cannot take them on because they are an institution unto themselves and if he starts turning on brave Hizbollah heros for the sake of peace with the zionist entity then Assad will be executed and he knows it. So peace with arabs will not mean peace with Iran or an end to the nuclear threat. If we want to improve relations with the US then Obama needs to risk making himself unpopular with muslims and show tough love to his arab allies and say sit down & talk. I will condemn Israel when it is justified and I will condemn you when it is justified but I want to be an independent mediator not an arab puppet. Unless Israel just keeps saying yes sir whenever the arabs demand something no matter what it is and if we ever say no we will have Obama on our backs again. Obama weakness and desire to make himself popular in the islamic world is the main problem here. He led Abbas to believe he could have anything he wants which is the reason he keeps refusing to talk unless Israel accepts all his pre conditions and Obama could end this stalemate today all he needs to do is say to Abbas stop playing games & talk unconditionally. You want my help you talk if not then I want nothing to do with you and you need the backing of the US to ever create a legitimate state, Latin American countries won't solve be able to do that for you.
