Netanyahu made one very effective point today. He said, "How can you expect Israel to trust Iran in any way as long as Iran's clearly stated goal about Israel is annihilation?"I think it makes sense for the U.S. to demand that Iran withdraw its clear and public threat to Israel's existence as part of any new nuclear arrangement.
A Greater Israel cannot be anything but an apartheid state, and exclusionary ethnic nationalism of this sort is not sustainable in the 21st century. Israel's Arab subjects will eventually demand equal rights, and as former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert warned back in 2007, once that happens, "the state of Israel is finished."
