This clip below, from an interview by an Israeli channel with an Iranian woman attending the world cup in Russia is fantastic. Why? because its an antithesis to all the hate and venom which Israelis are subjected to weekly by Iran’s leaders. It shows the side which many Israelis rarely see: the ordinary people of Iran.
Of course one person does not represent the views of a country of 80 million, but, I am still happy that for once there was direct connection between the two peoples. And more importantly, positive things were said.
I wish the national team of Iran the very best of luck in their game against Spain tomorrow night.
