Around the Middle East, A Reader’s Guide – 8th Edition

Things have calmed a bit in the Middle East, but that doesn’t mean things are slow. In fact, the situation regarding Iran’s nuclear program is picking up steam.

• Iran is talking nice. But are they really willing to compromise? Or is it a lie to buy time to build nuclear weapons? And will the US believe them? Here are some of Israel’s concerns and perspective.

• Iran’s new, supposedly moderate President actually implied a recognition of the Holocaust. Then an Iranian news agency accused CNN of falsifying his comments. Denying acknowledging the Holocaust – which basically is Holocaust denial. Some things just don’t change, sadly.

• Iran wasn’t all that Obama discussed at the UN. Israel- Palestinian talks were on the menu as well. What does that mean?
