Israel mocks Iran's leader as salesman bullish on nukes
WASHINGTON (AFP) - Israel derided Iran's new president as an expert salesman who is bullish on nuclear proliferation in a bitingly sarcastic tweet sent on Wednesday.
It came from the Israeli Embassy in Washington and poses the question of what President Hassan Rouhani's LinkedIn page might look like.
The tweet came out just as the United States and Iran are showing signs of a thaw in long-antagonistic relations and a day after their presidents made hopeful sounding remarks at the United Nations General Assembly in New York on the Iranian nuclear standoff.
The spoof of the Iranian president's LinkedIn page has him describing himself thusly: "I'm a career politician, expert public relations professional, leading international salesman and longtime advocate of nuclear proliferation."
