However, I am happily surprised by the appointment of Professor Michael Oren of Princeton university as the new Israeli ambassador to the United States. I really like that choice. Prof. Oren knows the history of the region better than any one else and I'm extremely happy with this choice. Look what Mr. Oren has said today:
- "Israel will not remain passive while a government that's sworn to wipe it off the map acquires the means for doing that"
On the other side, the former Speaker of the US Congress Newt Gingrich is calling for regime change in Iran. He's said that Obama's Iran policy is a 'fantasy'. It's unfortunate that the Regime Change option was never tried and we're closer to the military option. The US government could have done better.
