1. France, welcome back to the Western civilization
HaifaGuy   (11.11.13)
Someone needs to stand on guard as the US are easing themselves out of the driver's seat.
2. Javed Zarif uses Facebook!!!! Why?
Is it not strange how the Iranian foreign ministry and negotiator uses Facebook to condemn the French for scuppering Iran’s best deal and the west's bad deal. Yet his own people are not allowedor free to use Facebook. That tells you what type of regime the Iranians run and how careful the Western negotiators have to be.
3. why 'hardliners'? People with courage are hardliners ?
4. There will be a War anyway !.
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (11.11.13)
I Quote - “I know (Netanyahu)… If you don’t toughen your positions, Netanyahu will attack Iran,” Habib reportedly told Fabius. “I know this. I know him. You have to toughen your positions in order to prevent war," he reportedly added. Comment - Now the Ball is in Irans corner and they will not back down !. Arn.Sweden.

Miri ,   Holon   (11.11.13)
According to Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein Israel is boycotting the French Presidents visit. guess he had better learn to keep his big mouth shut as we can see in times like this, Israel needs all the friends it can get. lets just hope Liberman the thug dosent do any further damage to Interanational relations
7. G-d bless france !!!
BUILD BABY BUILD ,   United States   (11.11.13)
This makes up for any uncertainty that Israel, may have had with Hollande's visit. Sen. Mc Cain is right, Viva La France.*** Merci bu coup! CONTINUE BUILDING, PLEASE !!!!
8. thank you france!
nadav ,   tlv   (11.11.13)
At least one nation has learned from history. However, saying that, it is still mind-boggling why democratic countries will trade and engage in diplomacy with an openly racist, eliminationist anti-Semitic regime like Iran, instead of isolating it completely and changing its regime!
9. From now on...NO MORE cracks re
benjy   (11.11.13)
the French and the white flag.!!!! Hope more will see sense, and USA>>WAKE UP !!!
10. Never thought the French would hold
DT ,   TA Israel   (11.11.13)
out for long.The only thing the US is good for is putting pressure on their Allies and threatening them
11. US doesn't understand ME negotiating ..
michael redbourn ,   Lisbon Portugal   (11.11.13)
It seems like the US has no idea of how negotiations are carried out in the Middle East, and in most other places too. You ask for more than you expect to get and you offer less than you are willing to pay. Bibi knows the world won't get from the Iranians what he's demanding but it forces the Iranians to counter-offer. The Iranians offered much less than they were willing to offer and Kerry and Company jumped to accept the offer.
12. Rare to be proud to be French
Gallula ,   Paris   (11.11.13)
I used to condemn an criticize French foreign policy but I should admit that M. Fabius surprised me. May be Saudis and qataries bowed him because French Muslims are 100% sunnit. Hollande is a trumendous friend of Israel. Obama and co are cowards and I hope this man will be fired ! Heureux d'être français aujourd'hui !
13. France has saved the day
CJK   (11.11.13)
hopefully france will continue to hold fast against the us capitulationdeal with the shia terror regime.
14. Except of course
Sarah B ,   Tel Aviv/London   (11.11.13)
According th the Secretary of State John Kerry France had signed up to the deal, and it was the Iranians who had cold feet at the last minute
15. Morally correct!
Calibi ,   Sydney Aust   (11.11.13)
GOD BLESS you Fabius AND BLESS FRANCE for defending Israel in this special occasion!
16. France more logical than the Kerry administration
Adi ,   Zurich   (11.11.13)
France more logical than the Kerry administration
17. Fabius
Dik ,   Spijkenisse, Holland   (11.11.13)
had the wisdom and courage to reject the bad deal on Iran in Geneva. Let the nations not foll into the trap Iran has set up to convince the international community that their atomic program is for peaceful purposes. God forbid that the ayatollahs will get the bomb. Shalom from Holland
18. French playing around aside, we are the final word
Cameron ,   USA   (11.11.13)
All hinges on what the Yanks will or will not do. America decides the matter.
19. Light in the dark
Etienne Prinsloo ,   Nova Scotia, Canada   (11.11.13)
Thank you, France, for being the only sensible European country in this time of American pro Shi'ite madness. The American liberal steamroller seems to have lost some of it's impetus and that is a little ray of light in the dark.
20. Well, Well, Well......
Koose E Mack ,   NY USA   (11.11.13)
What a pleasant surprise! Viva La France!
