Former Iranian cleric: We have no problem with Israel

Former senior Iranian cleric calls for an end to hostilities between Iran and Israel in interview on Israeli TV.

Abdol-Hamid Masoumi-Tehrani, a former senior Iranian cleric, spoke to Israel’s Channel 12 News on Monday and called for an end to hostilities between Iran and Israel.

Tehrani, whose "ayatollah" title was revoked by Tehran following disagreements with Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said, "I have been speaking in the most transparent way possible for 20 years. I sit in Tehran and do not work for any country, organization or group. If they do not like me talking to you or anyone else – it is their problem. We have no problem with Israel or any with other country in the world."

He criticized Khamenei and said, "In 1986, when he was elected as the Supreme Leader of Iran, due to my previous knowledge of him and his behavior, I claimed that he would surely destroy both the religion and the country. Because of that and because I opposed him, I spent five years in prison. This disagreement continues to this day."



"Unfortunately, because our regime is dictatorial and limited to the rule of one person who does not care about the thoughts of most of the public in Iran, the people here cannot protest quietly and the regime suppresses them violently," Tehrani said of the political situation in Iran.

Asked what the average Iranian thinks of Israel, he replied, "You must understand that Iranians and Jews have a long history of friendship. From what I see and hear in conversations with people here, I have not encountered Iranians who have a bad opinion of Israel. It is time for the Iranian regime to stop inventing enemies that do not exists."

Tehrani asserted Israel has nothing to fear from Iran's threats. "I do not think this talk (about the destruction of Israel) is serious. Do not forget that Saddam Hussein made similar claims and we know where he is today."

For the first time, Israelis can now send mail to the UAE

'Connection will allow tightening of commercial ties between Israel and the United Arab Emirates,'



In a historic first, Israelis will now be able to send mail and packages directly to and receive them from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), via regular mail, registered mail, and Israel Post's EMS delivery option.

The announcement follows cooperation by Israel Post with the director of the UAE's postal system.

Dany Goldstein, CEO of Israel Post, told Israel Hayom: "We are happy and excited by the cooperation with the United Arab Emirates, which will allow us to expand online commercial activities in Israel to additional countries. The company has agreements with over 150 postal directors around the world - an additional testimony to Israel Post's abilities as a central player in Israel's online commerce, which contributes to lowering the cost of living."

"The relationship being created between Israel and the UAE, and the connection between the postal directors, will allow a tightening of the commercial relationships between the countries."

Gilad Tirosh, Chief Commercial Officer, e-commerce and CEP, said: "We expect to begin working with the UAE post, which has shown great professionalism throughout the process. The cooperation will allow us to expand our basket of solutions and to offer our private and business customers the widest range of countries to which they can send and receive postal packages at the best prices possible."

My trip to Iraq as an Israeli Jew, in retrospect

I'm Israeli and Jewish and this is my trip to Iraq, Iraqi Kurdistan to be specific.

Thank G-d That Israel Exists - Mary's Story

Mary Livi and her family serve as an example of the diversity found in Israel. Mary’s father was born in Israel, but is of Libyan heritage, and her mother was born in Morocco. Mary’s husband was born in Israel, and is the descendent of a Yemeni mother, and a Moroccan father. Mary’s mother and her family were forced to leave Yemen due to growing anti-semitism and the riots that followed.

Mary’s paternal grandparents fled Libya right before the Second World War.
Despite the hardships her family has endured, she does not want to hold a grudge.

Israel as nation between freedom & liberation
Between fleeing Egypt and the first national war, the people of Israel are building their mental resilience.



Why couldn't the numerically superior Hebrews fight Egypt at the Sea of Reeds?

If the Torah shares Israel's collective soul, why was it necessary to be given in the form of a "rule book"?

Who was Yehoshua and what about his background made him capable of leading the war against Amalek?

Between the smashing of Egypt's military at the Sea of Reeds and the war against Amalek at Rephidim, Israel required a gradual process of psychological liberation in preparation for receiving the Torah.

Listen on:

Norwegian state radio host: “I wish the vaccine didn’t work in Israel, Israel is a shitty country”
Antisemitic, Israel-hating rant on Norwegian state controlled radio.


Shaun Henrik Matheson is a radio host at NRK P13, a digital music channel run the Norwegian state broadcaster NRK. Tuesday 2 February he served the following antisemitic, Israel-hating rant to his listeners [see Spanish translation below]:

“Jeez, well, we had better mention the good news, even if they come from Israel (laughs). I know, how sick is this? Good news from Israel, when did that happen last time? Do you know what, I don’t know actually. But we have read about this all day today and heard it just now on the radio news.
