Israel Pleased As U.S.-Iran Handshake Doesn’t Happen

leave a comment »

JERUSALEM — In the corridors of Israel’s Foreign Ministry this week, diplomats worked at a furious pace to send messages to the country’s allies across the world: “Please, stand with us against a nuclear Iran.”

It was part of a larger media blitz prepared ahead of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech at the U.N. next week, and came amid a flurry of activity hinting at warming ties between the U.S. and Iran

So on Tuesday, when a much-hyped potential handshake between President Barack Obama and Iran’s new president, Hassan Rouhani, did not happen, it came as little surprise that some Israeli diplomats described the government as “relieved.”

“I wish I could be back in the US right now to tell some of my American colleagues, ‘you see, we were right.’ We told them Rouhani was not interested in bold steps and even if he was, [Ayatollah] Khomeini would not let him take any dramatic initiatives this quickly,” he said. “We only hope that this throws cold water on the entire Iranian show that they have tried to stage at the UN this year.”
