Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, says the new US president is following the same misguided track in the Middle East as his predecessor. Speaking at a conference in Tehran, Ayatollah Khamenei said Israeli leaders should be brought to trial for their last military incursion into Gaza, in which more than 1,000 Palestinians were killed.

Salute to the great leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran and Mr. Ahmadinejad, the President. With the power of Allah and faith from God, we got the Zions wrapped around our fingers. They got no where to run and can't just hit and run anymore. In the future we will arrest their leaders if they do harm to any innocent civilians.
Hope Mr. Ahmadinejad wins the election and be able to continue Iranian policies towards the region and the Zionist regime. I fully support him.
God Bless the Islamic Republic of Iran.

A regime that is responsible for murders of thousands of innocent young dissident, disappearance of minorities and intellectual , hanging of children And thousand other atrocities. You may want to sit around the table and chat with them,  but not the people who still has regards for  dignity and freedom of our brothers and sisters in Iran.

and do what they preach to others.

What have mullahs' 30-year-old failed policies got them and Iran but a long list of failure after failure, turning Iran into a pariah state that nobody trusts or4 dares invest in?

The failed policies of the US under Bush is being repeated again. Why would this work this time?

If you don't do your homework and go take an exam and fail, you can't do the same, not study, and take it again and expect a better result. 

Iranian government has shown interest to speak with the new Obama administration, let's see how they can mess it up. It has happen before.

BRUSSELS — U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton swiped hard at Iran on Wednesday, accusing its hardline leaders of fomenting divisions in the Arab world, promoting terrorism, posing threats to Israel and Europe, and seeking to "intimidate as far as they think their voice can reach."

Her remarks, at the conclusion of two days of talks in Egypt, Israel and the West Bank, were notable for coming from an Obama administration that has raised the prospect of diplomatic engagement with Iran as part of a new direction in U.S. foreign policy.

In remarks to reporters aboard her plane en route from Ramallah to Brussels, Belgium, Clinton said that in her talks with Arab foreign ministers and other leaders she heard "over and over and over again" a deep-seated worry about threats posed by the Iranians.

"It is clear that Iran intends to interfere with the internal affairs of all of these people and try to continue their efforts to fund terrorism, whether it's Hezbollah or Hamas or other proxies," she said.

In Tehran on Wednesday, Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, accused President Barack Obama of following the same mistaken path as the Bush administration with his "unconditional" support of Israel. Khamenei also called Israel a "cancerous tumor" that is on the verge of collapse. He said Israel's leaders should be put on trial for its military offensive in Gaza, which ended with a shaky cease-fire in mid-January.

During her visit to Ramallah, Clinton met with the top leaders of the Palestinian Authority that administers the West Bank, President Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Salam Fayyad. She then flew to Brussels for a NATO foreign ministers' meeting today that is expected to focus on developing a new strategy for the war in Afghanistan and prospects for improving relations with Russia. She offered strong support for Abbas, saying the Palestinian Authority is the "only legitimate government of the Palestinian people."
