Iran might respond to sanctions passed against it in the US last week with terrorist violence in the Middle East, said Israel's Washington Ambassador Michael Oren on Tuesday in an interview with  Foreign Policy magazine.

Oren said that Teheran would respond to the sanctions by either returning to the negotiating table or by starting a war in the Middle East to divert attention from the sanctions and its nuclear program.  He said that in the case of Iran deciding to start a war, they would use Hamas and Hizbullah to attack Israel and perhaps others.

The ambassador stated that it is basically a matter of seeing who can hold out longer and that the international community must perservere in enforcing the sanctions.
