ElBaradei apes James Baker

In 2006, the Iraq Study Group headed by James Baker and Lee Hamilton issued a report in which the United States was urged to sacrifice Israel to mollify Iran.
"In the context of a full and secure peace agreement, the Israelis should return the Golan Heights, with a US security guarantee for Israel that could include an international force on theborder, including US troops if requested by both parties," the Iraq Study Group headed by James Baker and Lee Hamilton recommended.

The report also predetermines an outcome for 'negotiations' with the 'Palestinians' that includes the following:

* Adherence to UN Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338 and to the principle of land for peace, which are the only bases for achieving peace.
* Strong support for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian Authority to take the lead in preparing the way for negotiations with Israel.
* A major effort to move from the current hostilities by consolidating the ceasefire reached between the Palestinians and the Israelis in November 2006.
* Support for a Palestinian national unity government.
* Sustainable negotiations leading to a final peace settlement along the lines of President Bush’s two-state solution, which would address the key final status issues of borders, settlements, Jerusalem, the right of return, and the end of conflict.

The report also states in the Palestinian context that "the United States will not be able to achieve its goals in the Middle East unless the United States deals directly with the Arab-Israeli conflict.
Where are the conditions that the 'Palestinians' have to fulfill? How about stopping terror and recognizing Israel?
Now, feckless nuclear watchdog Mohamed ElBaradei, having allowed Iran to reach a nuclear capability on his watch, is urging the same thing.
Any collective Arab action on Iran , however, appears mired in chronic divisions over other issues including a 2002 Saudi-sponsored peace offer to Israel , opposed by some hardline or militant Arabs backed by Iran .

ElBaradei also said a Middle East security structure drawing in Iran , all Arabs and Israel , believed to have the region's only nuclear arsenal, would be an indispensable part of any Middle East peace arrangement.

A lack of security guarantees, he said, lay at the heart of Iran's motivation to pursue what would be virtual nuclear weapons status, since uranium enrichment can be used either for electricity generation or for material to detonate atom bombs.

Iran says its nuclear program is to generate electricity.

" Iran could be a positive force in the region; it could also be a source of conflict and confrontation," ElBaradei told a foreign policy forum gathered in Austria's parliament.
F**k the Jews, they don't vote for us anyway, eh Mohamed?

Someone has to be the sacrificial lamb. It wouldn't surprise me if it turns out to be Israel. We heard Roger Cohen declare the other day who is really holding up Middle East peace. And we all know on whom the heat will be turned up.
