GOLDBERG: Why would that stop Iran from
developing a nuclear weapon?
It won’t stop. It will get you all the Arab countries more aligned on containing Iran because now they use Palestine
as an excuse, and the Palestine issue is a deep political problem.
And I’m not saying it’s only the U.S.’
fault, I’m saying it is as much Israel
fault for not making any progress on it themselves. But lack of their kind of
commitment, the U.S. needs to
step in and say, you need to do this. And you need to do this for your sake,
for our sake, and for the region’s sake.
This is the point HMK Abdullah II of Jordan made about the region when I saw him speak in 2008.
