    1. Many of you seem to think that we are dealing with a rational Iranian government which looks out for its vital interests and will make a logical decision if sufficient pressure is applied. You are wrong. We are dealing with a strate run by religious fanatics that wanbt enough power to accomplish the goials of their religious ideology. 2. Many of you seem to think that AIPAC or the Zionistrs are dictating US and EU policy. This is akin to the anti-Semitic belief that the Jews are e behind a plot to take over the world, as expressed in the infamous Protocols of the Elders of Zion (a very popular book in the Arab and Moslem world). Yet Israel makes up only 0.1 % of the population of the world, and trhe whole Jewish People only 0.2%. You are ascribing to Israel/Zionists/AIPAC/Jews a degree of power detrached from all reality.
