Just after I wrote of seemingly intractable conflicts in the world - A New Model For Dealing With Potential Problems and Resolving Conflict

"Tehran - The head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, Ali Akbar Salehi, has dismissed Israel as a threat to the Islamic Republic, saying Tehran’s lack of recognition of the Jewish state renders its warnings as “empty threats.”

“We essentially do not see [Israel] as a state, therefore it’s not a threat to Iran,” London-based news outlet Al-Araby al-Jadeed quoted him as saying in an interview published Monday.

Salehi made the remarks in response to a question about his estimates on the chance of an Israeli-Iranian war in the wake of the nuclear deal reached last year."

Is this the solution for political problems in the Middle East?

It has not worked for peoples like the Yazidis and Christians in Iraq and Syria in dealing with threats and attacks by ISIS but maybe they were not firm enough in their denying recognition to the Islamic State?

I wonder how this would work in our life?

Could this be a March 1st version of an April Fools joke?
