Iran has not surrendered, and Israel seems to view any other scenario as unacceptable.

Fareed Zakaria is host of CNN's flagship international affairs program—Fareed Zakaria GPS. Zakaria's interviews with the Dalai Lama, heads of state including Barack Obama, King Abdullah II, Moammar Gadhafi, and Lula da Silva, as well as intellectuals, business leaders, politicians, and journalists have been broadcast in over 200 million homes.

In 2010, Foreign Policy named him one of the top 100 global thinkers, and while his columns have received many awards including a 2010 National Magazine Award, his October 2001 Newsweek cover story, "Why They Hate Us," remains the most decorated.
