Obama and Kerry, All Wrong Re: Iran

United States Secretary of State John Kerry's  attempts at reassuring words to Israel about Iran have the exact opposite effect on me.
Kerry: We're Mindful of Israel's Security Needs
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday said the window for diplomacy with Iran was "cracking open", AFP reports.
"Right now, the window for diplomacy is cracking open," Kerry told the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) summit in Washington via satellite from London, where he had met earlier with the EU’s foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton.
The threat of a nuclear Iran isn't just an Israeli problem.  Dont' forget that Iran's nuclear deveoplment has been going on for over half a century, read Wikipedia. Any one who thinks that only Israel would be in danger hasn't a clue as to what Iran plans on doing and its basic policies.  Israel doesn't even top the list of enemies according to Iran.
TEHRAN, Jan. 5 (UPI) -- Iran has put together a list of 60 groups it considers enemy agents in a "soft war" against the country, local media report.
Citing a report carried by the semi-official Mehr news agency, CNN said Tuesday the Iranian enemies list includes the Open Society Institute in New York headed by U.S. philanthropist George Soros, the Washington non-profit National Endowment for Democracy, the National Democratic Institute and the International Republican Institute. Also considered "soft war" enemy agents are Human Rights Watch, the Washington think tank The Brookings Institution and the U.S. National Defense University. CNN said such media outlets as the BBC and Voice of America are also included. Mehr reported Tehran's deputy intelligence minister has urged Iranians to avoid any "unusual relations" with the groups and with foreign embassies and foreign nationals.

The United States would be more threatened by a nuclear Iran than Israel.  In the 1930's Europe much more than just the Jewish population was in danger due to the Nazis.  Remember that Hitler's main plan was to conquer all of the world starting with Europe. The anti-Jewish discrimination and death camps weren't the main part of Nazi ideology.
Mr Chamberlain declared the accord with the Germans signalled "peace for our time", after he had read it to a jubilant crowd gathered at Heston airport in west London. BBC

Just like the world's diplomacy to rein in the Nazis failed, so will American negotiations with Iran. Don't count on these "diplomatic windows."  And don't keep thinking that Iran is a Jewish or Israeli problem.  That's like spreading simple body lotion on skin cancer.
