Trita Parsi, author of the Salon.com article “A campaign for war with Iran begins,” discusses Israel’s preference for Iran’s Ahmedinejad instead of a moderate president, how Israel’s “qualitative edge” over the sum total of Gulf states is slipping away, doubts about the practical utility of the U.S.-Israel special relationship and why a U.S. reconciliation with Iran would mean the end of sanctions and expanded Iranian regional influence at Israel’s expense.
