The latest talks between Iran and the six world major powers have stopped Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s campaign for war against Iran, a political analyst says.

“The developments in the Geneva conference are extremely promising and appear to pull the rug out from under Benjamin Netanyahu’s campaign to bring about a war against Iran,” Editor of Veterans Today James Fetzer told Press TV on Thursday.

He made the remarks one day after Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council – the United States, China, Russia, France and Britain – plus Germany wrapped up two days of talks and agreed to meet again in the Swiss city of Geneva on November 7-8.

The analyst also praised Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s diplomatic overtures.

“It’s really quite fascinating how President Rouhani has taken the initiative in making diplomatic overtures for the Western nations,” Fetzer said.

“It’s actually politically completely brilliant and I believe that there are very strong signs here that this is going to culminate in a peaceful diplomatic resolution that will leave Israel even more isolated in terms of its political position with regard to the Middle East,” he added.

The retired professor also noted that the negotiations caused Israel “to lose much of its political influence upon the United States.”

Fetzer also congratulated US President Barack Obama for his foreign policy moves.

He said that “for the time being at least I congratulate Barack Obama” on his foreign policy moves which appear to be “on the verge of diffusing a major source of contention in the Middle East” and to make an actual contribution to the reduction of tensions in the promotion for the world peace.

Following the Geneva conference, EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton hailed the negotiations as the “most detailed” and most “substantive” ones ever held between the two sides.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif also expressed hope that the talks will herald a “new phase” in relations between the two sides.

Zarif said this “will hopefully be the beginning of a new phase in our relations towards closing an unnecessary crisis and opening new horizons,” in reference to the title of Iran’s proposed package.

    I just hope Rouhani isn’t another Obama or al Sisi or House of Saud Israeli plant, a Jew more interested in maintaining Jewish control of the Middle East than in his own “alleged” country or the people therein.

    Too soon to tell, from where I stand.

    I would like to see the land of Palestine returned to its rightful owners, I fear that will not happen. I fear that will not happen because to get the illegal state of Israel to stop murdering people and starting illegal wars, I fear the area the illegal state of Israel illegally occupies will be made radioactive. I am not for using nukes and feel they should be removed by the land by conventional means.

    It will not be long before the great nations intolerate “Israel” to World esteem.

    Say what you want about Barry, but he’s learned alot and put key people in position to have the most positive overall foreign policy since JFK. Sure he’s f’d up plenty, but no war with Iran/Syria and Russia/China is plenty of legacy and accomplishment. Can you imagine where we’d be with a President Song Bird McCain and/or Romney, both zionist hardline stooges?!

    Like Mike Harris has said, the only solution is a total US occupation and dis-armament of Israel; however this would be a devastating invasion, as there is no way they’d allow the goyim to de-fang them.

      The obamister does not squat to pee without permission from the MAN. His foreign policy is one of murder of innocents mayhem and the further enslavement of the American people. He is controlled by the MAN, The illegal state of israel and its minions are controlled by the man. So is Putin and China. What you see is political chess in order to have the sheeple walk into the slaughterhouse instead of having to be carried in.

    Corporate talk radio programs are already weighing-in, shrieking about the Israeli “evidence” of Iran’s alleged nuclear program. This is the same concocted nonsense we’ve been hearing for 30 years. The amount of influence the Jewish state has over America’s mass media is mind boggling, not to mention Washington, of course. Why bother to contact your Senators or reps? They only follow marching orders from AIPAC, the Israeli Knesset, and K Street lobbyist. Perhaps the American people should flood the switchboards of AIPAC, and the Israeli Knesset.

    I won’t be satisfied until the whole world calls out Talmudia’s hypocrisy…this is a false, contrived controversy that is ENTIRELY about Talmudia maintaining it’s nuclear monopoly in the ME…Oh, if only Pakistan had “shared the wealth ” and given Saddam a few nukes-Iraq would still be having annual “Retaking Kuwait ” celebration days…No Highway of Death..no “monster babies” due to America’s depleted uranium….If only Libya had nukes-NATO wouldn’t have been able to turn a 1st world arab country into Somalia..( Though Libya shold have offered Russia a naval base…the Chinese a sweet oil deal in exchange for a defense treaty.Chinese air base, etc )

      Actually, Christopher Busby went to Fallujah expecting to discover that the epidemic of birth defects there had been caused by depleted uranium and discovered instead that they were being caused instead by enriched uranium from the use of a new type of nuclear weapon, probably neutron bombs. I published an interview with him and Leuren Moret about this, “New Bombs and War Crimes”, here at Veterans Today, where this appears to explain why the WHO has not released its study on this matter (under pressure from the US. See http://www.veteranstoday.com/2011/11/03/new-bombs-and-war-crimes-in-fallujah/

      Majia Nadisen, whom I interviewed yesterday about Fukushima (which will appear here when the transcript has been made), explained that, because of its constraints under its agreements with the International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN cannot publish on the use of uranium or nuclear weapons without IAEA approval, which, of course, the US is going to insure will not be given. This is one of the ways in which American can pose as the moral leaders of the world while in fact violating the sovereignty of other nations, torturing prisoners and committing other war crimes on a regular and on-going basis.

      The hypocrisy of the United States, alas, is rivaled only by the hypocrisy of Israel.

      But it also happened in other parts of Iraq..areas only touched by our DU..and after the “first” Gulf War..

      Radiation of all kinds seem to be bad for humans. The vast majority of radiation is there because we shot it at them in illegal wars. DU or mini nukes, does not matter, we had no right using them there and their people are suffering because we did, the ones we did not kill outright.

    Unfortunately, Israel us gives no indication of ‘giving up’ on war as indicated by the recent upsurge in both illegal settlements and wanton cruelty against Palestinians. War is the inevitable consequence of these policies and the Israelis and the world know it. Israel will not be content with political isolation and will go for broke. Already, ‘our’ servile Senate is proposing increased sanctions against Iran. The President– far from stabilizing things here at home in the aftermath of the ‘shutdown’– has unleashed a new wave of economic and financial chaos which will soon show his unsuitability to govern. Barring the imposition of severe sanctions against Israel, expect Israel, AIPAC, the neocons, et al to exploit the President’s weakness, the financial collapse of the US. An apartheid Israel cannot survive without war.

      Yup, Talmudia LIVES on blood, land-theft, brutality, targeted assassinations, threats against neighbors, manipulation of Western powers ( through financial control and the Holohoax guilt tool )…and, of course, acting in concert with it’s Masonic Anglo-american allies to create false-flag terror events..

      I agree Emma. Hollyweird has shaped how people think, talk, act, dress and behave. And few grasp the enormity of it. I ignore references to this movie, that show by writers to clarify their context. I’ve heard and read many people for decades who had to resort to “its like the scene in blah blah”, apparently incapable of describing an issue. Also known as dumbing down.

    • Charlotte NC Bill  October 19, 2013 at 8:57 am

      “How they dress”..how true…no woman boarding the Titanic would dress like the average “lady” these days and they would be apalled if you insist they should…

    • john ccarleton  October 20, 2013 at 8:36 am

      I bet the illegal state of Israel did not miss any installments on the over three billion a year the US government steals from the tax payer to give to israel.

    • Arjan  October 21, 2013 at 12:06 am

      It may in fact show Israel knows what is coming, and is rushing to create some more ‘facts on the ground’ before they are forced to stop.
