Clinton highlights Iranian regime threats to Middle East peace

In a joint interview with Israeli and Palestinian TV channels on Saturday, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Clinton said the rise of Iranian-backed extremist ideology in the Middle East is a major reason time is short for a peace agreement between Israel and Palestine, according to the Associated Press.

The Obama administration believes that a successful Mideast peace deal would limit Iran’s ability to use Mideast tensions to justify its behavior, according to AP.


Mrs. Clinton went on to say Iranian-sponsored “rejectionist ideology” and a “commitment to violence” by those opposed to peace make reaching an agreement quickly all the more necessary.
