Lieberman: Iran biggest threat to Middle East peace

Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman commented during a recent interview that the greatest threat to a comprehensive regional peace, "is not Israel, it is not the Palestinians. It's the Iranians."

This echoes Prime Minister Netanyahu's assertion that the Iranian threat is his administration's top priority, not Palestinian statehood. Netanyahu is expected to ask for U.S. help in preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons in exchange for Israeli cooperation on the peace process with the Palestinian Authority during his upcoming visit to the White House.
