Iran & Israel: Let’s Give Them Something To Talk About

The looming Iran-Israel confrontation has a seemingly deterministic quality to it. The hard-line politicians on both sides are beating the drums of war – hypnotizing, mobilizing, and gyrating the masses to a dance of death. Yet a great deal of this conflict is fueled by ignorance of one another – what each others’ societies, culture, and people are really like. The hard-liners feed off this ignorance.

To that end, over at Haaretz Dr.Trita Parsi and I co-wrote a piece on some essential things Israelis and Iranians need to know about one another.

* The article is dedicated to the loving memory of Amir Jahanbani – the best teacher I have ever known.
