A realist, not a hippie

23 Oct

When it comes to US – Iran regime and Israel – regime relations, this is something I strongly believe in:

“We are very lucky that we live in a generation where some of our enemies are more scared of peace than war.”

Now you may call me a hippie 😉
Joking aside, experience has shown that the Iranian regime knows how to handle war threats much better than rapprochement and offers of improved relations with the West.
This is a weakness which must be exploited to the full.
We are truly lucky.
I mentioned this statement last night as part of my lecture on Iran at the Center for Ethics and Religious Affairs at Penn State University. The lecture was arranged by Penn State Hillel.

It was reviewed by the local newspaper The Center Daily.
