I am a 45 years old Israeli.
I’ve met several Iranians – obviously Jewish Iranians who immigrated to Israel, but also non-Jewish Iranians whom I worked with abroad.
I love all of them – gentle, kind, warm, intelligent and educated. We became friends within 5 minutes.
I also admire Iranians as a nation for their vast culture, scientific and artistic achievements, not to mention their fantastic food.
This is also the way I educate my daughters.
This hatred chapter in our shared history is temporary, and I am sure within a few years people from both countries will be able to meet and visit each other again.
