Israel Hayom, David Weinberg wrote of how the Americans are hoping to ignore the dangers of Iran to world peace.
The United States is back in its pre-World War Two isolationist mode for sure. The United States had hoped that it wouldn't be "dragged into" war with Hitler. It tried being accommodating, and there were many prominent Americans who didn't find Hitler problematic. They certainly didn't mind his anti-Semitism.Now, Pickering is back at the head of a panel of former senior U.S. officials and outside experts called "The Iran Project," urging U.S. President Barack Obama to drop sanctions and covert action against Iran, and instead negotiate more intensively with Tehran."I fundamentally believe that the balance between sanctions and diplomacy has been misaligned," says Pickering. He and his colleagues (who at the time included Chuck Hagel, now defense secretary) write that the sanctions policy seems to be backfiring and has "contributed to an increase in repression and corruption within Iran." They worry that sanctions "may be sowing the seeds of long-term alienation between the Iranian people and the United States."In an interview with The New York Times, Pickering also contends that Obama should review the covert program against Iran -- which reportedly has included computer sabotage of its nuclear facilities -- to "stop anything that is peripheral, that is not buying us much time" in slowing Iran's progress.

“To threaten an immediate attack on Iran is not beneficial to Israel,” Dagan said. “It transferred the Iranian issue from a worldwide issue to an Israeli issue. I would have been happier had [US President Barack] Obama made his announcement that he would not let Iran get nuclear weapons in Riyadh and not in Jerusalem.”
I must admit that I don't agree with much else that Dagan stated. He's total unrealistic when it comes to the chance of "peace" with Arab terrorists.
When you look at the big picture, it's clear that the Arab terrorism that targets Israelis is also related to the Arab and Islamic terrorism that can be found even in the United States, such as the Boston Marathon bombing.
It's a very dangerous mistake that Israel is accepting foreign advice/instructions/ideology to do everything it can to make peace with the Arab Terrorists. It is totally impossible to make peace with terrorists. Consider it against their religion!
The bottom line is that the world is in big trouble!
