Israel Behind Iran’s Ejection From World Cup


I love this tweet from Murtaza Hussain, one of the journalists at the Intercept: most famously known for Glen Greenwald (don’t raff).

I’m trying to figure out if it’s sarcastic or not.

For non football fans: that’s Bibi Netanyahu with Lionel Messi, the Argentinian striker who scored the last minute goal that sealed Iran’s fate.

It’s also worth reminding everyone what else he got up to when he was here in Israel last August.

Update: Even though I was pretty sure it was mostly sarcastic, it’s nice to have confirmation. Now when he calls me Einstein, that’s sarcastic too, right?
