Gingrich: Remove Iranian regime

WASHINGTON (JTA) -- Newt Gingrich at the AIPAC policy conference called for ousting the regime in Iran and bombing its missile sites. Gingrich, a former speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives and a likely presidential candidate in 2012, in his address faulted the last Bush administration and the current Obama administration for engaging with Iran as long as it is led by theocrats who threaten Israel.

- Not bad opening, uh?

Iran questions wisdom behind new US threats

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Hassan Qashqavi has questioned the wisdom behind a US Congress initiative to choke off gasoline supplies to the oil-rich country.

Despite claims of seeking a new beginning with Iran, the US government has threatened the Tehran government with further unilateral sanctions should potential negotiations over the country's disputed nuclear program fail.

Peres to Obama: No choice but to compare Iran to Nazis

The world has no choice but to compare the threat posed by Iran now to that of Nazi Germany before the Second World War, President Shimon Peres told U.S. President Barack Obama in Washington on Tuesday.

"Iran is a threat not just to Israel, but to the whole world. As Jews, after being subjected to the Holocaust, we cannot close our eyes in light of the grave danger emerging from Iran," Peres said.

- Yeah, right!

Israel would inform, not ask U.S. before hitting Iran

"I do not doubt that Israel will do what it thinks it needs to do, regardless of whether the U.S. approves," said Mark Fitzpatrick, non-proliferation expert at the International Institute for Strategic Studies in London.

"Israel would seek forgiveness, not permission."

A retired Israeli general who advises the government on strategic issues suggested there was a tacit synchronicity in recent messages about Iran from Israel and the United States:

"The Israeli threat adds urgency to Obama's calls for diplomatic engagement, and should Israel take things into its hands, the Americans retain wriggle room, some deniability."

I think it's great to see that a lot of the jewish people are now tired of the violence & aggressions in general, and that many of them are beginning to support a two state solution.

Many of the jewish people are tired of the old hardliners & hawks in the goverment & shadow institutions, and would really like to see a different and better future for the region & Israel.

I have no problem supporting their struggle for a better Israel!

'Time is not in Israel's favor,' Livni warns

Israeli opposition leader Tzipi Livni addressed the Council of Foreign Relations in New York City on Tuesday, outlining her support for a tough approach toward Iran. She also stressed the importance of the peace process with the Palestinians and cooperating with "moderate" Arab forces.

"Time is not in our favor," she said, adding that avoiding tough decisions would be a strategic threat to Israel's future. She said it would be a big mistake not to continue negotiations with the Palestinians, because peace is in the interests of Israel.

German official: Lieberman comments 'far from encouraging'

Lieberman talked about a "peace industry," which to date had achieved little but waste money, according to parliamentarians at the meeting. He further described Iran as a major threat.

"All this is far from encouraging," said former German minister of state for foreign affairs, Werner Hoyer.
