    •  According to articles in (0+ / 0-)

      the Israeli publication Haaretz, Netanyahu has a few words of warning for the West:

      "We should recall that in the first place the Iranian ruler disqualified candidates who didn't suit his extremist views, and of those whose candidacy was permitted, someone who is seen as less identified with the regime was elected," Netanyahu said. "This is still someone who called Israel 'the Great Satan.' In any case, the Iranian ruler who is called the 'supreme leader' is the one who determines Iran's nuclear policy."
      ...
      Netanyahu also noted that the election of former Iranian President Ali Khatami, considered a moderate by the West, 15 years ago did not lead to a change in Iranian policy.

        a. admit Israel has nukes; and
        b. give them up.
