The war drums of Israel can be heard rumbling in the distance but the sound is getting steadily louder.  It has been heavily reported that Israel will strike soon but when?  Iran’s nuclear scientists are disappearing at a reasonable rate, but assassinating a few smart guys is not enough to satisfy Israel…and large precision bombs will drop very soon.

Tel Aviv is a lot like Tehran on Friday nights

Israel and Iran, it’s a complicated situation for sure.  Add a youthful and interracial Israeli population (a lot have married into Palestine) who want to party and make peace with their neighbors, then mix in a hard-line fundamentalist religious administration and you get a mirror image of Iran.

Israel and Iran have a very similar situation fundamentally, and this draws some very interesting parallels to think about on both sides.
