I hope things get better between the two countries.

This looks real good and nothing bad could come from it except of course a Muslim fanatic shooting Khatami much like what happened to Anwar Sadat.

Let's hope that doesn't happen. Remember these people are just figureheads without much if any power but it is cool that these two humans could put away their national bickering and just talk about a long gone childhood in a town where they both were born.

Not so different then we think.

Or the assasination of the Israel president by Jewish extrimists just like Yitzhak Rabin.

Of course Khatami is denying the whole affair. It never happened.
President Katsav is a Persian Jew who came from the same city as Khatami and that was what they discussed according to Katsav. It would be nice if the Iranians could be a bit more honest and not lie at every chance they get.

If Khatami is a Jew I'm from Mars!!!

What was said in my previous post is that Khatami and Katsav discussed the city Yazd in which both were born in.

Is it just me? I find it amazing that President of Iran and President of Israel are from the same city
I mean how bizzare can affairs get? two country that are each others archenemies have their presidents come from the same town??????

Ps. Khatemi denied shaking hand! he didnot deny talking to him! so my best guess is they talked but did not shake hand

The nations' leaders were seated alphabetically according to all news sources. I do not find it hard to believe that the leadership of Iran and Isreal had a conversation.

As a Persian Jew Katsav is probably fluent in the same language as Khatami and I don't doubt that they exchanged greetings at the event.

The Pope inspired a lot of people in his long tenure. It would be fitting if even in death he inspired two people who don't see eye to eye to be civil.

Just because two enemies shake hands and say few words doesn't mean hope is all on the up and up. It's a courteous matter to do that during a major funeral like the Pope, in which, virtually, all politics were put aside and world leaders to pay their respects.

It doesn't change anything between Iran and Israel.

I agree with oleneo that it's more courtesy than anything else. After all, at the same gathering Jacques Chirac elegantly kissed Condi Rice's hand. I see the world leaders as a bunch of rambunctious kids "behaving" for their benevolent yet formidable grandfather who just died.

Did you know that the Israeli Minister of Defense is a Persian Jew as well and spoke live on the radio with Iranians in Iran.

One called called up and asked for Israel to liberate the Iranians like the Americans liberated the Iraqis. I know some of you would think that that the call was staged but just search the internet and you'll see how much animocity there is amongst Iranians against the current regime.
