My Mideast Punchlines: a thorny issue…..

Iran’s only Jewish parliamentarian, Siamak Moreh Sedgh denied speaking to Israeli media after Israel Radio aired a recording of him telling reporter Gideon Kotz that he didn’t expect a war between Israel and Iran.

“Iran does not want to start a war against Israel, because they know that everyone who starts a war in the Middle East is doing suicide,” Siamak Moreh Sedgh told Israel Radio in an English-language interview aired Sunday morning . . .

“Relations between Iran and Israel [are] more stable than ever before since the signing of the nuclear agreement last year,” he said.

Small FistNo doubt aware that his comments might get him in hot water with the ayatollahs, Mr Sedgh sought to distance himself from them. You might say that the Israeli reporter was a Kotz in his side (Kotz in Hebrew means Thorn).
