Common in Iran and Israel !

Could you imagine that the president of Israel, Moshe Katsav, and Iranian reformist president, Mohammad Khatami, both are from a city, Yazd, in the center of Iran! I wonder if they have been playmates when they were kids!! Even Katsav can still speak Persian, language of Iran.

It seems really funny to me that in the Cabinet of Israel, there are two members who are born in Iran, while two countries seem to be so against each other.

By the way, Jewish people have a really respective view and good memory about Persia, old name of Iran before 1935. Persia and Persian Empire was a country that helped their people during the ancient religous anti-Jews conflicts.

Indeed, Jewish people had been living in Iran in peace because of Cyrus Charter of Human Rights, the first known charter of human right in about 540 BC. The document had been hailed as the first charter of human rights in 1971 and the United Nations published translation of it in all the official U.N. languages.
