Iranians to Israel: “We Love You, and Know You Love Us”

Iranians attending the World Cup in Russia say that the ayatollahs’ hatred of Israel does not represent them

By |

An Israeli reporter in Russia to cover the World Cup caught up with fans of the Iran national team just after its match against Morocco, and some of what they had to say was eye-opening.

A group of three Iranian men pleased with their team's 1:0 win over Morocco went on to tell the Israelis watching from home: "What you saw in there, those are the people of Iran, not what you see on TV (referring to the frequently televised anti-Israel marches in Tehran). We love you, and I know you love us."

Another fan declared: "The Iranian people love Israel!"
