A new paradigm for resolving the Iran conflict

Israel’s warnings about Iran helped to strengthen Western sanctions, but were insufficient to influence the six nations from using more than diplomacy with Iran, foregoing the threat of military force.

Can Trump’s ‘carrot and stick’ style bring hope to the Palestinians?
