CL, I’m a blathering TV watcher I’ll admit. I watch Bravo.

So there’s this show, Shahs of Sunset about rich as fuck Iranian ex-pats in Beverly Hills.

The main character is FABULOUS. Gay, a son of a Jew and a Palestinian. His Father (Jewish) had to convert for the marriage - interesting.

They are divorced, (converted back) and got damn, Reza the Son is a conflicted dude, but hilarious and real (at least on tv) I love him, and I cried buckets when he described his conflicted life.

I just tweeted him the exhibition, asking if he was going.
Doing my little part I guess.

Relations between Israel and Iran were very cordial until 1979. Israeli would vacation and conduct business in Iran, and Iranians in Israel. Many wealthy Iranian Jews maintained vacation homes in Israel, which eventually became their primary homes.

Also, Persian food is TEH AWESOME.

re: #3 Vicious Babushka

Iran’s relations with everyone were “cordial” until the revolution.
Israel and Jews never held particularly high esteem in Iran.
There were noteworthy persecutions in the past.

re: #5 rosiee

The problem with maintaining “cordial” relationships is that to do so it seems like you must support and prop-up tyrants to maintain it.
