Obama & Peres Speak to Iranians on Nowruz

U.S. President Obama and Israeli President Peres recorded messages for Iran. The Iranian holiday Nowruz symbolizes the start of spring and a new year.. Both men spoke to the people of Iran. President Obama directly addressed Iran's leaders. He spoke for three and a half minutes, with not one smile. I expected all that good will and thoughts of family celebration to produce even the tiniest of grins. Alas, no.

President Peres said Tehran's leaders should 'stop spending their days dealing with bombs and uranium – is this in the name of God?'

Israel bombed its democratic neighbor to the north in 2006 with bombs, specifically millions of cluster bombs as the cease fire neared. Peres' Israel bombed the ghetto known as Gaza, while holding 1.5 million people under siege. Israel also has 150-200 nuclear weapons, either made from enriched uranium or plutonium. Is this in the name of God?

Coordinated message management from the good cop/bad cop? Highly likely.
