Ahmadinejad Accepts Israel?

Apr 26 2009 @ 9:35pm

An interesting nugget worth testing in the coming months:

Asked if he would support an agreement between the Palestinians and Tehran's arch enemy, he said: "Whatever decision they take is fine with us. We are not going to determine anything. Whatever decision they take, we will support that. We think that is the right of the Palestinian people, however we fully expect other states to do so as well."

Cynicism? Telling Stephanopoulos what he wants to hear? Or feeling pressure from the electorate and from Obama? We'll see. But if every state, including Iran, backs a two-state solution, and Netanyahu refuses, then Israel's isolation will intensify.
