Iran: ‘Even Israelis and Americans’

An Iranian vice president said in rare comments that Iran was a friend of Israeli people, newspapers reported on Monday. “I say for a thousandth time that we are a friend of all people in the world, even Israelis and Americans,” the daily newspaper Etemad quoted Esfandiar Rahim Mashai, the vice president for tourism, as saying. Mr. Mashai first made the comments last month, angering Parliament, but he repeated his statement on Sunday and said: “We are against the Israeli regime. We have no war with Jews.”
