Ok, granted he’s not in Iran, but he is doing it in a predominantly Muslim area of England.
Ali Ramezan is an unlikely Israel supporter, but the 47-year-old, who fought in the Iran-Iraq war, has turned his back on Iran.
He has now been granted residency in the UK after 11 years as an asylum-seeker. “I only watched an anti-government protest, but I was arrested. I have relatives who go out shouting, ‘Death to America’, ‘Death to Israel’. I realised it was brainwashing.”
In 1999, Mr Ramezan, a lorry driver, is currently gathering witnesses to mount a legal challenge in the Iranian courts over his wife and son whom, he claims, he was forced to leave behind.
In the meantime, Mr Ramezan vents his frustration by flying Israeli and US flags from his home, an odd protest in his neighbourhood, the mainly Muslim area of Cheetham Hill.
“People have said I could be firebombed but I’m not scared to fly my flags. In Iran they would hang you.”
Meanwhile, there are plenty of decent people still in Iran, and some of them have left comments to this recent post.

I am from Iran, and I LOVE you Israeli people.
In Iran, we all know about our lunatic government .. like most of my fellow countrymen and women we love Israel … let’s all hope for a life in peace and prosperity – of course without Ahmadinejad or Hezbullah or Hamas.
Im another iranian.your title is great!Death by photoshop
Yet another Iranian,
The sad part is that the world is watching these morons and count them as Iran, while true Iranians have to suffer and be embarrassed by their crazy government.
