A lively panel on Iran and Israel

I took part in this lively panel on Iran and Israel last week at the LSE in London. It was sponsored by BBC Arabic and the Front Line Club.

Really enjoyed it.

The other panellists were former TIME correspondent in Iran Azadeh Moaveni, Scott Petersen of The Christian Science Monitor and Abdel Bari Atwan of the Quds Al Arabi newspaper.

Jon Snow of Channel 4 chaired the panel.
