By the way, I knew many people from Shiraz. Our local yeshiva in Baltimore, Ner Yisroel, had a leadership program for Iranians. When the Shah fell, the boys stayed on, and now they run many of the businesses in my old community.

It doesn’t contradict at all because Iran is not a democracy, so that the government posters don’t (have to) reflect the opinion of the people.
I even met many elder Iranians who speak fondly of Israelis. Before 1979 there was a lot of contact between Israel and Iran, including direct flights, trade, holiday, medical tourism and so on.

Which do they believe. (And you left out Israel, perhaps the most pro-American country in the world.)

When I took the photo in Shiraz, a young Iranian woman came up to me and apologized. She said “Please Sir, you need to understand that this is now what the people of Iran really believe.” And she was right. I found Iran to be the country with the least anti-American sentiment among the population in all of the Middle East.

When I was in Iran, I saw this sign with Iran’s message of peace to the world. (Unless you can read Persian.)

After all of those long range missiles shot all the way from from Tehran destroying Israeli bases, the Iranian fighter jets and cruise missiles downing Zionist F-15s, the Iranian troops manning the front lines in support of their Hamas allies who wouldn’t say “thanks”?

Maybe they should send some of those “plastic keys to heaven” left over from the Iran-Iraq war, with the next shipment of outdated weapons.
