Oct 1, 2013 — Iran's President Hassan Rouhani is trying to use charm to ease international pressure without scaling back its nuclear efforts, Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu says. "Rouhani thinks he can have his yellowcake and eat it too," Netanyahu told the U.N. General Assembly Tuesday.

May 25, 2011 — If President Obama could get a do-over on his Arab Spring speech, would he restate precisely his line about Israel's 1967 borders (with agreed swaps!) being the starting point for renewed talks between Israeli and Palestinian negotiators?From a purely political point of view, it seems unlikely.
