    Christiane, no amount sanctions are going to be effective enough unless a firm check is imposed on nuclear plus Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) violations along China-Pakistan-North Korea axis with Iran being one of the potential beneficiaries among other rouge and failed States.

  4. Arab states shoud learen that Israel can help create a Middle Eastern paradise

    How can I watch this Barak interview on my lap top as I am at my office desk without access to a TV.

    The peace around the world seems to rest on the hatred of this tiny nation by the large ferocious giants.

    Tiny Israel with all its discoveries and inventions could teach all it's anti-zionist neighbours so much and create an agricultural paradise in the middle East
    Why do these neighbours want to destroy Israel and cause themselves to live in the dark ages ?

    I am glad that Cnn has found a place for you on Sunday's I do believe your talents were needing a platform, but do you really think that Americans can take you seriously as being unbiased about Iran when you yourself is an Iranian??!!! I do not think you should be slamming the defense minister of Israel the way you have today. I think you are very biased in your beliefs so expecting Americans to take you for face value is a bit over the top.

    I think it is ridiculous and inexcusable that, while discussing the Iran nuclear issue with Israeli defense minister Ehud Barak, Amanpour avoided discussing Israel's own nuclear arsenal. When Ehud Barak talked about "calling a spade a spade" with regards to Iran, Amanpour should have done so with regards to Israel. You do an immense disservice to the American public, many of whom do not know that Israel has nuclear weapons and is not a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. You cannot discuss the alleged Iranian development of nuclear weapons without discussing the major predicate, which is an Israeli arsenal that has been in existence for decades.

    What did you think to accomplish by your interview with Ehud Barak? I would say for the 'Goldstone Report', people should read it their selves and then decide. Goldstone is an admitted Zionist and deeply loves Israel he only want to see the survival of that state.

    Could Christiane Amanpour be any more transparently pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel? She interrogated Ehud Barak and Tzipi Livni as if they were Nazi war criminals!

    She's completely obsessed with the wretched "Goldstone Report" by that self-hating Jewish "judge". There is no country on Earth (with the exception of the US) that protects civilians in its military operations against an enemy that actually targets civilians and uses them as human shields.

    Shame on Amanpour! She should try being an actual journalist. She may find it refreshing.

    Listened to this interview, and it is the same as most of your interviews, which clearly show a bias towards Palestinian or Arabs or Muslim countries and people. You forgive hundreds of terrorist and war crimes from the Palestinians, and accuse Israel of war crimes. If it is so bad for the Palestinians, then why is it that the so caring Arab Countries do not take them into their country and make a home for them. If the Palestinians are so peaceful, then why do they continuously attack with rockets, bombs, suicide bombers and everything else they can. The Palestinians are not peaceful, but rather are as most extremist who care nothing for other people. Like the lies the Iraq government televised during the starting days of the US war, all of the Arab countries cannot be trusted to tell the truth about any matter. They are liars who do anything to advance their own cause, no mater how many others they hurt. You are overly critical of anyone who doesn't praise these terrorists and liars. Too bad Lou Dobbs is gone, he was the only Good reporter at CNN.

    I saw your interview with Barack. Why for heavens sake did you not ask him about their nuclear program? And why did you not ask him about their refusal to join the NPT? Surely you were told previous to the interview that that was a taboo subject and what does that say about your integrity? My guess is that you are afraid of loosing access.

    Hi Ms. Amanpour,
    I watched your interview with Minister Ehud Barak and I watched as well the late Mr. Arafat's interview. I have to admit you did a wonderful job on both interview and my congrats to Minister Barak for keeping his composer. I was a bit disappointed on the settlement issue, I believe it is the only key to Peace in the Middle East. I specifically say the Middle East b/c it is the key to a peaceful Israel. Minister Barak said it is a judicial issue on settlement permits in Israel, ok, then it is a judicial problem, then what is the legislative, the government is doing to solve the problem. Each time a settler or a Palestinian dies, you have failed your people.I mean in the U.S when there is a problem with a law congress goes back to the table an amend it. Does Israel has that? If not they should think of it. B/c if the world has a obligation to adapt to changes, Israel has a curse to adapt to changes otherwise it would not survive. My dream is to see Muslim living with all faith in peace, including their cousin the Jewish people. It was never b/c of religion has never been, always been about land.

    During you interview with Mr, Ehud Barak beside his silence regarding Dubai issue something else captured my attention. When he was talkin about Israel offence against Gaza and Goldstone report he claimed Israel conducted its investigation prior to Goldstone report. He mentioned they went to Gaza gate and INTROGATE Palestinian about Israeli soldiors behaviour during the Gaza offence.
    I believe introgation is a tactic that will be used to obtain information from criminals when you are talking about inoccent civilians and want to collect information you interview them not introgate them. I hope it is not the nature of Mr Barak approach to Palestine/Israel issue.
    That was a great interview.

    Christiane, as usual you're doing a great interview with Ehud Barak. One thing he said which I think he is wrong about, is that he said it could take years before Iran has a nuclear bomb, I don't think it will be that long & wouldn't be surprised if they came up with one within a year. I think Ahmadinejad/Khomenei represent the greatest danger, not just to Israel but to the world at present. And with that country a step away it being a "Sharia State" enthused by the revolutionary guard (RGI) then things are going to go from bad to worse not only for Israel but for every country in the region. So the world better act & act fast!

    As regarding the assasination in Dubai, why not, that guy was a top terrorist. Now I'd wish they'd assasinate Osama Bin Laden & his no 2 sidekick.

    Good-afternoon. Heart-break for the Haotiens people.
    I have just heard from the CNN that 8 persons are killed in Haiti because of heavy rain. What the use of sending rescue team to help Haitiens people and to let them died becase this time of heavy rain.
    The different organizations have colleced great sum of money, different countries have contributed for the relief but now why people, are still dying in this destructed country.
    Please what are the decisions which have been taken. Decision takes too much time. People are still suffering and moreover they will died days by days.
    I plead the CNN not to forget Haiti. The world will never forget Haitiens people if the CNN always focus on it.

    Please do your best for the world will not.

    YThanks and i hope to have a reply in a few days.

    Israel-Palestine Conflict- I lived in Middle Esat for 19 years. American government certainly know the reason behind those people being killed by Israeli forces and government in Palestine. We all know the truth. If Barak Obama is any different than Clinton or Bush, he will make a change in US government with regards to Israel. Otherwise, he is participating in the same crime as Israelis do.

    Iran's Nuclear Program- All of us know that this issue of Iran's nuclear program is no different than the issue of Iraq's nuclear program. US government brainwashed its own citizens. Bush lied just to have Iraqi's land and to colonize those Iraqis, and of course to steal the oil.

    This interview was very offensive. I found the dismissive and condescending responses (and facial expressions) of Ms. Amanour to Mr. Barak to be inappropriate. She refused to allow him adequate opportunity to refute her anti-Israel assertions, and she clearly was not impartial or objective as good journalism would have mandated. In the future, CNN should utilize other reporters to cover this subject.

    If the Arabs continue to insist on an Apartheid state then there is nothing the Isralie can do. you put all the responsibility on Mr. Barak, when the Israelis have made offer over and over again. The problem is that the Arab world would rather sacrifice the Palestinians than grant legitimacy to the Jews.
    So be it then.

    First and formost I have been a fan for a long time. I believe your reporting the news is top notch.

    However, why does Israel have to always defend itself. The Jews have been in the Middle East since the beginning of time and given the promised land by G-D.

    The Old Testament is the word of G-D to the people he chose when Abraham spoke to G-D.

    I am sick and tired of those detractors and anti-semites who want the Jews to vanish.

    One other thing, CNN should take up with Israel & ask why are they rounding up the immigrants who moved to Israel from Thailand/Philippines & some other migrant nation's and deporting them now that there are issue's re; recession & with Israeli's going back to the motherland because of a call by Israeli governmment to return & live in Israe? Many of the Thai's/Philipinnes etc have children now eight, nine, ten & more who were born in Israel & feel & love being an Israeli, & they are being thrown out too with their parents because Israel want their homes to be handed over to fellow countrymen/women/families returning & answering Israels worldwide campaign for them to returm to the motherland & keep Israel as near to an entire Israeli populated country as possible.

    This is wrong & barbaric as it was the immigrants who came & carried on the work & jobs in Israel for years that Israeli's wouldn't do. But now that Israel wants by its propaganda campaign "Come Home, Israeli's" they are throwing these families out who love Israel, but worse than anything they are throwing out the/their children who were born in Israel & are Israeli citizen's. Its "Wrong, Wrong, Wrong"!

    It is time to tell the TRUTH about Israel. Yes it is populated by people of Jewish religion but their ancestors were converted to Judaism during the Khazar Empire centuries ago. They cannot trace their origins back to Palestine. They are eastern European Jews and as such have no claim to that region.
    Most of them have double citizenship so they can easily go and live somewhere else.
    There is also a Jewish region in Russia called Birobidzhan that Stalin gave to the Russian converted Jews or Ashkenaze in the 1930`s but no-one ever mentions this.
    There must be only one country and that is Palestine. When are the Palestinians going to have a life? And why are they paying in order for the Israelis to flourish?
    All the problems we have in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia will disappear when Israel ceases to exist. These zionists have no place in the middle-east , they are the only ones that have continuously created problems.

    Ms. Ammanpour, Your interview with Israeli defense minister was awful. Given his resistance to talk on some issues, you should have pushed him and challenged him harder on those that he did/would speak about. Re: settlements, you failed to note that they are ILLEGAL. Mr. Barak was clever to respond that settlements are a non-issue in terms of negotiation by demonstrating that in past negotiations, settlement activity was 2 to 4 times more intense than it is currently. This was a straw man. The context of your question was if settlements have closed the door on a 2-state solution. Don't you think if settlement activity was 2-4 times more intense during past negotiations (that did not result in peace/Palestinian statehood), it has contributed to the reality of a 2 state solution being MORE difficult today? Today the land is divided up by even more illegal settlements than in prior years, and by a wall that puts a buffer INSIDE Palestinian territory! This is clearly a land grab of moving Israeli's into occupied land (Who owns the title to those homes? Why not have the buffer inside Israeli territory?) . While in the past it may not stopped the peace process, it has, TODAY, made the objective of a 2-state solution MORE difficult and that was your question. You should challenge those who try to twist your questions. I was disappointed with your ability to get answers from Mr. Barak, and it reflects badly on CNN that during long interviews like this, you are unable to put the facts on the table and get a response. I don't think the BBC would have let him off the hook so easily. You can, and should do better.

    Re: wayne

    Ms. Ammanpour may not reply, so I thought I might illuminate a couple of your questions.

    "If it is so bad for the Palestinians, then why is it that the so caring Arab Countries do not take them into their country and make a home for them."

    Seems that is in fact what Israel wants: keep this peace "process" going as long as possible, while squeezing the Palestinians, violating their rights and international law until they leave. Would you leave your home if one day I showed up and claimed it?

    "If the Palestinians are so peaceful, then why do they continuously attack with rockets, bombs, suicide bombers and everything else they can."

    See response above. As for "continuously", well, I would argue that the illegal occupation has been continuous, but the extreme resistance measures are not. As wrong as it is to resort to extreme tactics, it is equally or worse for Israel, a nation state to cause suffering and violate the rights of the innocent. Israeli actions in Gaza last year were beyond the pale. As for why people resort to this, you must not be Israeli or you would know that the predecessor of today's Likud party conducted acts of violence (see: If Israeli extremists can become a legitimate part of a nation state, why not Palestinian? A precedent has been set. The founders of Israel got the Brits to leave and they achieved statehood. Leave the WB/Gaza and give Palestinians their state!

    First, I don't usually watch CNN because of its bias but I so happened to come across this show and I really liked Mr. Barak's way of handling a hostile interviewer. Christiane seems to do a good job but I think that there should be a minimal respect to a country's minister and especially in that setting.

    Now, for all of you who post in this blog stating your opinions –
    It is nice to have a forum where all people can discuss their thoughts. However, in this matter of Israel's settlements and right to protect itself from terrorists no one of you can fairly say you truly understand anything about the region and about Israel/Zionists unless you have been living in Israel for at least several years. I believe that most people who respond here and in other forums have not actually had any experience living there and therefore they state opinions based on what the media or their family or friends feed them instead of using their minds to seek for the truth. So to all viewers of this message and to Christiane as well, I urge you to start opening your eyes and minds to think on your own after conducting some minimal independent and unbiased research OF YOUR OWN about Israel, the Israelis the Zionist and the land of Israel with its diverse residents which includes Arab population.

    *Palestine is a name that was given to the land of Israel by the Romans some 2000 years ago in order to humiliate the Jewish people at the time when ancient Rome had conquered the land; The name comes from Plishtim (Philistines is how I believe it's named in English bible) which was the name of the people who were fierce enemies to the ancient Hebrews. Those Plishtim came from Europe and settled in the area now referred to as gaza strip. The name Palestinians is only a conjugation of the name Plishtim and has nothing to do with the Arab population sitting in the gaza strip and the west bank today and therefore they are not Palestinians anymore than any other person living on the entire land of Israel nowadays.

    Have doubts? Questions? I challenge you to do your OWN RESEARCH while seeking the TRUTH and you shall find it.

    Thanks for reading and have a peaceful day.

    Only when Israel will cease to exist will there be world peace. The Jewish people living there are Eastern European converted Jews who cannot trace their origins to ancient Palestine,
    Ehud Barak (real surname Brog) is Lithuanian and all his counterparts are Polish, Ukraine, Georgian etc.,.Stalin gave these Jews a Region in Russia called Birobidzhan which still exists today.
    The Palestinians have a right to exist in their homeland and not to be continuously targeted and killed by these zionists. Furthermore the Palestinians have no problem living with the real Jewish people (sephardites) who originate from this area.
    The State of Israel is the MAJOR PROBLEM in the middle-east and until it exists we will have problems in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia.

    I liked the fact that you pressed Barak on extreme Israeli activities against the Palestinian civilian population. He denied or evaded most questions as expected.

    Barak and Livni should, however, be treated as the war criminals they are! War crimes have no time limits!

    We are aware, why they are set on destroying their Arab neighbours and I refer you to Rabbi Fischmann, member of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, declaring in his testimony to the U.N. Special Committee of Enquiry on 9 July 1947: "The Promised Land extends from the River of Egypt up to the Euphrates, it includes parts of Syria and Lebanon."

    This statement reflects the core objective of all right wing Israeli administrations.

    Re: Look at you all
    Discussing ancient claims to the land is irrelevant. Palestinians rights are being violated right now, TODAY, in 2010. Thank God some media work to expose this and get the truth out! The land has been occupied of and off for millennium. In its CURRENT role as occupier, Israel is violating the rights of the PEOPLE it has claimed jurisdiction over TODAY. Modern nation states do not behave in this manner. Israel destroys public infrastructure in the West Bank/Gaza with impunity, and the international community and the World Bank come and rebuild it. In Iraq, the US destroyed and WE go broke rebuilding it, and Tony Blair gets called on the carpet (wish our congress would give Bush, Cheney the same treatment). Why doesn't Israel fix what it breaks when it destroys? Why should Israel be an exception in the modern era of pluralistic nation states which by and large have increasingly protected and increased the rights of minorities since the end of WWII and the Cold War? I cannot fathom that and am left to conclude that the objective is, as has been referenced here, for the Palestinians to "just leave". Your history lesson tells us that the people that are FROM the land of Israel do not just up and leave it. Nor, I would argue should they have to in the modern era of democracy, liberty, and justice FOR ALL. I am not saying that the Immigrants to Israel should leave. But why should the inhabitants of the land before those immigrants got there be forced to leave? The problem is not who was there 1,000 years ago, who treated who badly, or who did what with the land. The problem TODAY is Israel masquerading as a modern nation state while oppressing an entire people. I am dumbstruck as to why there is so little pressure on Israel to change it ways, and even more so at the way my country (USA) supports Israel unilaterally at the expense of its own interests in the region.

    Look @ you all:

    I lived in Jordan for a year. That experience opened my eyes – WIDE. I have friends and colleagues who have been to Israel and the West Bank. I watch the news, I read, I do what I can as I do on any issue of the day. Because I spent time in the region, my viewpoints are second hand but not superficial or knee-jerk. I have friends who have documented first hand how the physical remains of Palestinian (Ottoman, Arab, call them what you will – they were not owned by any Israeli), villages have been erased, for example. Other friends have been to Israel on business and reported strange behaviors by Israeli official tour guides when referring to the West Bank. Others consistently report how their laptops are taken for extended times and sometimes sent back to them via FedEx. Development practitioners tell me that any work to help develop the Palestinian economy is mere window dressing without access to markets. I See the World Bank procurement notices for millions in emergency infrastructure spending. This is my evidence of how Israel works to squeeze the Palestinians it occupies. Those with the opportunity to leave do – and who can blame them? And who is left? Even more desperate people. International law is clear. Israel is a nation state and should abide by its own and international laws and strive to uphold prevailing modern institutions related to justice and human rights. Mr. Barak wants Iran to come clean on it's nuclear ambitions? Does he own a mirror? Please, don't tell me I have to go to Israel to see first hand that it has nuclear weapons that are not inspected by the appropriate international institutions. These are REAL nuclear weapons that are outside of the inspection protocols. This is dangerous. No state is perfect, but Israel never misses an opportunity to disappoint when it comes to peace. I am sorry. If you want to improve the "look" of your country (assuming you are Israeli), you need to move beyond your ancient claims and join us here in our efforts to advance the modern world. With all it's technological achievements and breakthroughs, you would think Israel could respect basic real estate ownership and law and order concepts like "don't steal". One day I dream of going to Jerusalem and getting out into the country side. I hope that day will be one where the second-hand evidence I have access to today is proven wrong. Meantime, I am thankful for the access to information I do have in order to form my opinions witch at this point lead me to not support Israel with my vote (to the extent possible).

    The first step towards a solution in the ME with Israel and Palestine is for the US to halt the app 4 billion dollars to Israel PA and become an honest broker to stop using the power of the veto in the UN to protect Israel from sanctions by the security council.
    Allow inspectors into Dimona to inspect the nuclear facilities with the same enthusiasm as shown towards any other country inc Iran.
    How can any country exist without any internationally recognised borders or a written constitution as required prior to statehood ?
    How can one million Russian citizens immigrate to Israel and have greater rights than over one million Israeli arabs who are born there as were there forefathers and do not have automatic citizenship in any other country .
    There are already app 4 million Palestinians living in Jordan , Lebanon , Egypt , Syria etc who deserve to return to their homeland moreso than 1 million Russian immigrants to Israel.
    How can the Mossad carry out assasinations in any country in the world with little consequences ?
    Why were the hospitals , schools , mosques , factories and water lines electricity all destroyed as the IDF left Gaza ?
    Both CNN and Fox news support Israel in my opinion and the Israeli lobby in Washington dictate to Obama policy in the ME not him.
    Thats why after being told to halt settlements in West Bank they continued but the billions pouring into Israel did not stop either,
    There are many out here who do their own homework and want a homeland for both parties on EQUAL terms.

    We all know that you are 100% aware of the hyprocrisy , but continue to pretend that you are serious instead of just being an entertainer which in my opinion you clearly are, posing and singing for your supper while people live in abject poverty and despair.

    Why are you not mentioning that Israel is a nuclear power? Hush hush: everyone knows it, nobody dares to talk about it – not even Amanpour? It is a bit tough to want to deny Iran nuclear arms when they are stockpiled in Israel.

    We now witness the truth of all the previous posts.
    We clearly see that AIPAC controls Obama and even though there is a bit of posturing , the settlements continue , the billions pour in .
    Obama could get the health care passed , but he could not over rule the AIPAC , he knows who his masters are and bows to their every command.
    Time for another meaningless interview on CNN which will achieve the same as the countless others NOTHING AT ALL .
