General Assembly last month, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected Iranian President Hassan Rouhani's claim that Iran is not seeking nuclear weapons, calling Mr. Rouhani a "wolf in sheep's clothing" ("Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu: Iran leader Hassan Rouhani is a 'wolf in sheep's clothing,'" Web, Oct. 31).

Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Israel will not allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons, even if it stands alone, because Israel's future is threatened by a "nuclear-armed'" Iran seeking its destruction.

Hasan Rouhani, Iran's new president, made his debut on the world stage at the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, calling for "a framework for managing our differences." He didn't offer the olive branch President Obama wanted. If Tehran is genuinely interested in improving relations with the United States and the West, Mr. Rouhani and the ruling mullahs could prove it with a small gesture. He could free a Christian pastor who on Thursday marks his first anniversary as a political prisoner in Tehran's notoriously evil Evin Prison.
