Dear [News Outlet]:
I don't understand why it's not mentioned in your news reports that
[Israeli] Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom issued a statement following the earthquake [in Iran], saying, "The Israeli people and government send their condolences to the Iranian people. The government and people of Israel feel the pain of this human tragedy facing the Iranian people, and despite all the differences of opinion, at these moments a mobilization of the entire international community is needed to help the injured and the families of the victims."
but...
"Jahanbakhsh Khanjani, a spokesman for Iran's Interior Ministry, said, "The Islamic Republic of Iran accepts all kinds of humanitarian aid from all countries and international organizations, with the exception of the Zionist regime."
The story's at the Jerusalem Post:
