Israel and Iran are once again not seeing eye to eye, but this time it’s over something fairly unusual: Iran’s clothing choices.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu proved how out of touch he is with Iranian society when he intimated in his first interview with BBC Persian that their government restricts both their voting options and their sartorial decisions.
According to Netanyahu, Iranians are governed by a “cult” run by Supreme Leader and former Iran president Ali Hosseini Khamenei that restricts them from being truly free.
