IAEA - Current Iran Sanctions a Failure

 Iran has actually stepped up its nuclear weapons program - that is the only reasonable conclusion from the latest IAEA report disclosed on February 23. The findings have vindicated Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's position that the latest sanctions fall short of deterring Tehran. However, the U.S. intelligence community still contends that it has 'no hard evidence that Iran has decided to build a nuclear bomb'. Analyst David Essing is of the view the IAEA findings will lend urgency to Netanyahu's upcoming meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama in Washington.

Netanyahu's Constructive Ambiguity

In a dramatic diplomatic development, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has announced a ten-month suspension of housing permits for building in West Bank settlements. At the same time, Netanyahu made clear that housing construction would continue in Jerusalem's suburbs such as Gilo, which were constructed beyond the 1967 line after the Six Day War of 1967. In the existing West Bank settlements, public buildings such as schools, kindergartens and synagogues will continue as well as the completing of 3,000 housing units now underway. Analyst David Essing is of the view that Netanyahu's ambiguous approach on settlement construction may prove to impact as much on Israel's confrontation with Iran as it does on the Palestinians.

KISSINGER & LIEBERMAN

The strong showing by Avigdor Lieberman of the Israel Beitenu party (Israel, Our Home) has been a big surprise in the current Israeli election campaign. Lieberman, an immigrant from the former Soviet Union, is proposing that Israel and the Palestinians redraw the old 1967 lines. His idea would be for heavily populated Arab areas of Israel to become part of the Palestinian state in return for Jewish settlement areas on the West Bank. Considered to be highly controversial, Lieberman's proposal is apparently supported in principle by none other than former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.
