Iran has aspirations of becoming a regional power, and exports its ideology via Sh'iite minorities in Arab countries, Foreign Minister Livni told the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on Monday. It was the first time in the history of the Knesset that an FADC session was opened to the press. Livni also said that Iran wishes to generate a widespread ideology based on Holocaust denial and the destruction of Israel. She noted that Gulf States and the more pragmatic Muslim nations are coming to the realization that Iran poses a threat to them as well, and noted that this trend has an influence on their attitude towards Israel. Livni said that Israel and the Palestinians have joint interests in facing the Iranian threat. According to Livni, last week's Cairo summit was a breakthrough first meeting between Israel and the Arab collective, which wishes to support the process with the Palestinians. "The Arab world is ready for normalization with Israel after the conflict ends. The more Israel provides a diplomatic horizon for the Palestinians, the more the Arab world can strengthen Israel in a process based on a stage by stage progression", Livni said. "In my opinion, Israel must take advantage of this readiness to garner support of a bilateral process with the Palestinians"
