‘Iranian embassy’ to open in Jerusalem next month


‘Embassy’ is part of project by Israeli activists, artists aiming to promote ‘positive movement’ of dialogue

A new “Iranian embassy” is due to open in Jerusalem next month.

However, this will be no ordinary embassy. It will be established as part of a project by a group of local Israeli activists and artists plans to present a “positive movement,” instead of the “negative trend, which divides and frightens us.”

Tehran and Jerusalem once enjoyed warm diplomatic ties but after the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran, the situation took a turn for the worse and the two countries have been at loggerheads ever since.

The project organized by Hamabul Art Collective aims to highlight the relationship that once existed between the two countries.

The embassy will “show different aspects than those the media has been feeding us,” according to the group’s Facebook page.

Matan Pinkas, one of the organizers of the project, said the project aims to “leave the conflict at the level of the leaders and not between the peoples.”
