Interview of U.S. Ambassador Susan E. Rice
Al-Hayat / Raghida Dergham

I think we have to distinguish between what may be press speculation
and what the President will hear when Netanyahu comes to Washington.  I
think we need to wait for that to know the outcome of the Israeli
policy.  But that said, the US views an Iran with nuclear weapons as a
threat that not only to Israel but to the broader region, the Arab
countries in the neighborhood and indeed to the United States and
countries further afield.  And I've said repeatedly that that's a grave
threat that needs to be dealt with effectively.  Our strong preference
and our aim would be to use all elements of American power to try to
accomplish that - including direct diplomacy and engagement.
