Debka is reporting that Iran has two main points they are sticking to:

The Iranian negotiators face the delegations of six world powers in Geneva Thursday, Nov. 21, with strict orders not to give ground on the two major sticking points holding up a first-step deal on their nuclear program: The heavy water reactor under construction at Arak for producing plutonium and Iran’s “right” to uranium enrichment. If Iran gains those two points, whatever concessions its negotiators may come up with are worthless, because they will leave Tehran in possession of two optional nuclear weaponizing tracks instead of one - plutonium as well as enriched uranium.

Of course, it is understandable that Israel may have doubts that the U.S. will actually have their back should they strike Iran.

The last time talks were being held, 11/8, Billy Graham was in the news -- he gave what he called his "last message" to the United States. Now, as talks began yesterday in Geneva, Billy Graham was back in the news -- hospitalized for respiratory congestion, a condition he has been hospitalized for before. Interesting that his name was been in the news twice this month, and both times when the Geneva meetings were (are) being held.
