    I disagree with the notion that Iranian leadership has a longterm goal of destroying Israel.
    I believe that is a highly diluted analysis of the subject. I mean, technically America is still at war with North Korea.

    True, the language between Israel and Iran is harsh, as reality settles in that there's vast differences ideologically and culturally. I don't think either nation-state would condone actions to remove the other. Sure, there will be petty squabbles through newspapers and press-conferences. Sure, there are agents tickling the other country.. dismantling what they can.

    But, the total destruction of the other is out of the question.

    The Iranian leadership have a longterm goal of destroying Israel.
    How about quotes instead of a link to a wikipedia article?

    Do you realize that anyone of us could edit wikipedia and post whatever we wanted about Iran regardless if it is true or not? Wikipedia is not a reliable source of information. As Blunt bluntly stated, your comment was not on that Wikipedia page

    Let me predict what the Iranian response to this will be; "we will only talk if America totally conforms to our point of view, converts to Islam, stops supporting Israel and apologizes for it's genocidal escapades in the Middle East; Death to America!"

    Oh wait, they have already basically said this; quite the breakthrough. I am so happy to see the country run by naive community organizers who don't comprehend even the most basic concepts behind negotiating.

    Only someone with the mental capacity of a three year old or wallowing in abject denial thinks that this will lead to any breakthrough with despots, terrorists and dictators.

    Carry on!

    Having lived in Iran for six months I can state that the Iranian people really like and respect The United States of America, they did object however to the British/American imposed Shah and had a revolution to oust the barstewards a revolution that was derailed by the religius ruleing class (Ayatollas) and they would like nothing more than to have good relations with USA, but with mutual respect, its a great oppertunity for American business but israel wont like it

    I would suggest that their policy toward Israel is evident in their statements ("Israel is a cancer," "Israel is the little Satan," "Israel must be wiped off the map," etc.) and much more evident in their policies (providing financial/material support to Hamas. Hezbollah. and other historical anti-Israeli movements)
