      democracynow.org - Tensions between Israel and Iran have intensified with bomb blasts targeting Israeli diplomats in India and Georgia and Iranian accusations of Israeli responsibility for the assassinations of Iranian scientists. Iran, meanwhile, is claiming significant new advances in its nuclear program, citing new uranium enrichment centrifuges and domestically made reactor fuel. "If you listen to the media, you would see Iran as this sort of irrational aggressor, lashing out arbitrarily at other nations and specifically Israel and the United States for no reason," says Glenn Greenwald, a constitutional law attorney and political and legal blogger for Salon.com. "What's so amazing about that is it completely ignores the context of what the United States and Israel have been doing to Iran." We're also joined by Reza Marashi of the National Iranian American Council. "What makes [conflict] so dangerous, and increasingly likely, is there is little to no communication going on between the parties," Marashri says. "And when you do not communicate, that increases the likelihood for misperceptions and miscalculations."
