    It is wrong to suggest that the road to a solution re Iran's nuclear program has to involve the palestinian issue.It's exactly the other way round: Iran is fueling the anti-peace front led by Syria, hamas and hizbollah. There can be no peace in the ME, as long as Iran can go ahead with its nuclear program.Obama is a weak amateur who has no clue. He is the biggest stumbling block for peace in the ME.From the moment Iran gets the bomb, it doesn't even have to use it: it only has to threaten to use it, e.g. in case of a conventional war between Israel and its neighbors.The West cannot count on the Iranian opposition. It's simply too weak.Either Obama wakes up from his naive ineptitude, or ISrael - again - will have to do the job of saving the world from an irresponsible regime.The world shouted when Israel attacked the Iraqi nuclear reactor. They will do the same in ths case. Let them. Better the world shouting, than an Iranian nuclear missile hitting Israel.
