Jewish MP: ‘Iran not seeking war with Israel’

Update: Oops! Moreh Sedgh is now denyingever having spoken to the ‘Zionist entity”s radio station.

Perhaps it’s the Iranian regime’s attempt to influence the US election:  it is saying that the regime is rational and President Obama’s nuclear deal is working so there is no need for the electorate to endorse Donald Trump’s view that it was ‘one of the worst deals ever made.’ Iran’s lone Jewish MP Siamak Moreh Sedgh gives an interview on Israel Radio, reported in The Times of Israel (with thanks: Lily):

Iran’s sole Jewish parliamentarian said the
Islamic Republic is not seeking war with Israel and asserted that Tehran
knows that launching an attack on the Jewish state would amount to
“suicide.”

“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.

Sedgh said he believed the Iranian leadership to be “healthy and wise enough to avoid a war with Israel.”

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

“Two, three years ago I was suspicious about
[Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu, I think he is crazy enough to start
a war, but today, the condition of the world after the agreement is
better, and the Middle East is more stable,” Sedgh said.
