“If we are really anxious not to have nuclear weapons in Iran, the first thing is to call an international conference on abolishing all nuclear weapons, including Israeli nuclear weapons.”

 

Bruce Kent

“I think above all, what we need with Iran is patience.”

Brent Scowcroft

“We have never recognized that Iran lives in a dangerous neighborhood. And it’s not surprising that they want some protection. We have not been forthcoming about explaining a security relationship for the region, in which Iran can feel secure and thus maybe willing to do something.”

Brent Scowcroft

“Right now, the leadership in Iran is telling their citizens one thing. Our President is telling us another.”

 

Bob Corker

“Kazemi has to understand that nobody is going to tell him he has to go back to Iran if he misses a shot.”

 

Bill Walton

“When you look at belief in such things – as do you go to heaven, is there a devil – we have more in common with (Muslin countries) Turkey and Iran and Syria than we do with European nations and Canada and nations that, yes, I would consider more enlightened that us.”

 

Bill Maher

“For the first time since 1979, we are talking to the Islamic Republic of Iran. Obama says talking to him is probably pointless, but it’s a hell of a relief from Mitch McConnell.”

 

Bill Maher

“Newt Gingrich…is absolutely for bombing Iran and for lowering gas prices. And I’ve just to say, you can’t be for both. They are diametrically opposed.”

 

Bill Maher

“Instead of fighting ISIS, (the Saudis) have focused more on a campaign to oust Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen.”

 

Bernie Sanders

“I very strongly supported the agreement which makes certain that Iran does not get a nuclear weapon.”

 

Bernie Sanders

“Who said that think we should normalize relations with Iran tomorrow? I never said that. I think we should move forward as quickly as we can.”

 

Bernie Sanders

“The Cold War philosophy of Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD), which prevented the former Soviet Union and the United States from using the nuclear weapons they had targeted at each other, would not apply to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s Iran. For him (Ahmadinejad), Mutual Assured Destruction is not a deterrent, it is an inducement.”

Bernard Lewis

“If the world powers are not prepared to insist that Iran change its behavior before a deal is signed, at the very least they should insist that Iran change its behavior before a deal expires.”

 

Benjamin Netanyahu

“Don’t be fooled. The battle between Iran and ISIS doesn’t turn Iran into a friend of America.”

 

Benjamin Netanyahu

“All I can tell you is that Israel’s position in the Arab world has changed because they no longer see Israel as their enemy, but as their ally, in their indispensable battle against the forces of militant Islam, either those led by Iran, the Shiites, or – and those led by Daesh – by ISIS, the militant Sunnis.”

 

Benjamin Netanyahu

“Everything should be done to prevent Iran, the world’s most dangerous regime, from developing the world’s most dangerous weapons.”

 

Benjamin Netanyahu

“I had differences of opinion with President Obama and most well-known, of course, is Iran.”

 

Benjamin Netanyahu

“But so far, you know who’s been violating the nuclear nonproliferation pact day and night? Those who signed it. Iran, Iraq, Libya and Iran violates it while calling for Israel’s destruction and racing to develop atomic weapons to that end.”

 

Benjamin Netanyahu

“The only good thing I can say about the deal with Iran is that it brought the Arab states and Israel closer together.”

 

Benjamin Netanyahu

“The minute Mr. Putin decided to put his military forces in Syria, I went to see him. And I said, “Look, here’s what I’m doing. I’m not intervening in Syria. But at the same time, if Syria tries to intervene with us, if Iran tries to use Syria to attack us, we’ll stop it.”
