    As there is no way this Guy has control of Iran and who actually is making the decisions there.
    I've seen this episode on law and order before, it's called good cop, bad cop.

    Re: Intelligence Sources: Rohani Prepared to Shut Down Nuclear Site

    More on the same topic.

    As was reported on the Israeli news Channel 10 few moments ago;
    According to some sources in the US there were contacts and developments between the US and Iran on an agreement regarding the Iranian nuclear program.

    These new developments might explain the hard stance that Israel suddenly took on the Syrian-Iranian issue:
    “Bad guys” backed by Iran are worse for Israel than “bad guys” who are not supported by the Islamic Republic, Israel’s outgoing ambassador to the US Michael Oren told The Jerusalem Post in a parting interview.

    Moreover, this notion of the "new Israeli hard line" is reinforced by the newly agreed meeting between Obama and Netanyahu in the end of the month.
    In which Netanyahu would apparently present to Obama (and possibly the world) 4 Israeli "red line" points regarding the Iranian nuclear program, and the negotiations around it.

    Translated from Hebrew via Google translate with small changes by moi:

    Iran Focus: a meeting between Obama and Netanyahu end of the month

    Tonight it was agreed that the two leaders would meet on 30th of September, during Netanyahu's visit to the United States, and the next day the Prime Minister will speak to the United Nations. Expected major issues come up at the meeting: developments in Syria and Iran. "Events of recent days have confirmed the assumptions under which we operate" said Netanyahu. It would be their first meeting since Obama's visit to Israel last March .

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. President Barack Obama would meet during Netanyahu's visit to the United States, which will begin on Saturday, 28th of September. The meeting would be held will be held on Monday, September 30, and the next day Netanyahu would address the UN General Assembly.

    This will be the first meeting between Netanyahu and Obama since U.S. President's visit last to Israel six months ago. The meeting will be mostly in the background of recent developments in Syria - the agreement between the United States and Russia on the dissolution of Syria's chemical weapons - and Iran.

    During a cabinet meeting Netanyahu addressed the expected meeting and speech at the United Nations, which he said will focus on stopping Iran's nuclear program. "The way to stop the nuclear program requires four steps - stop all uranium enrichment, removing any enriched uranium from its territory closing the Qom underground reactor and stop the plutonium route. Only the combination of all four steps of a real stop nuclear program" -Netanyahu said .

    "Until all these steps achieved the pressure on Iran should be intensified rather than loosen, and certainly not to ease" he added. "The events of recent days have confirmed the assumptions under which we operate: a rogue country which develops or takes over weapons of mass destruction, would ultimately use them. Only credible military threat can allow diplomatic processes and other measures to stop arming non-conventional weapons."

    Israel fears the option where Western sanctions on Iran are removed, the country (Iran) will not stop uranium enrichment, and the already enriched Uranium leaves its borders (Iran's). The German Der Spiegel reported yesterday that the Iranians are ready to dismantle the Fordo nuclear facility for the removal of sanctions on its economy.

    In recent days the international media reported the approach of relations between the United States regarding Iran. However, the White House announced tonight that contrary to previous reports, unscheduled meeting between Obama and Iranian President Hassan Rohani, is not planned. They also are expected to address the United Nations on the same day, just a week from today, on the 24th of the month. Recently, attempts were made to coordinate the meeting between Netanyahu and Obama, and tonight, as above, is the meeting between the two was arranged

    Like I said, I am not optimistic regarding Iran's nuclear program...especially in the light of the recent events in Syria, and the Western reaction to these events.
