What ever happened to the good ol' days
(Hum the tune to "We Used to Be Friends" by the Dandy Warhols while reading this little blurb)
Once upon a time, in a galaxy not too far away, Israel and Iran used to be "friends with benefits" in geo-political kinda way.
Then the Islamic revolution happened, the Ayatollahs took over and decided that it wasn't kosher to have an inter-religious relationship with Israel. As it turns out, Iran's father was very upset that it was dating outside of its faith.
So Israel and Iran, needing to keep their relationship on the down low, were still hooking up for the munitions based booty call that would become part of the Iran Contra scandal.
And now this:
Israel calls Iran's president "very dangerous" - Reuters
JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel called Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad "very dangerous" on Friday after he expressed doubt that the Holocaust occurred and suggested the Jewish state be moved to Europe (continued...)
So is it really over? Do I have a chance with Iran? Do you think she puts out on the first date? Will I have to buy her dinner? Do I need to call her the next day?
