Top Iranian cleric okays buying an Israeli coronavirus vaccine

Iran — where many citizens have died due to the coronavirus — would make an exception and would allow citizens to use a future vaccine against the virus made by Israelis, “if there is no substitute.”

“It is not permissible to buy and sell from Zionists and Israel,” Grand Ayatollah Naser Makarem Shirazi told the Iranian paper Hamdeli. “Unless the treatment is unique and there is no substitute. Then this is not an obstacle.”

How gracious. But would we sell to the nation most desirous of our demise? Knowing Israel, we probably would, not seeking to punish the Iranian people for their fanatic leadership.

Shirazi is a hardliner who denies the Holocaust, Shirazi, 93, is one of the highest authorities in Shiite Islam. He has called the Holocaust a “superstition,” opposed owning pets and objected to efforts to allow women to attend soccer matches.

Nearly 1,000 people have died in Iran from the coronavirus outbreak as of Tuesday night with some 16,000 cases and 5,000 recoveries.

Iran has no diplomatic relations with Israel. On the contrary, the Islamic state has vowed to wipe Israel off the map and has been running a proxy war against the Jewish state through Hezbollah in Lebanon and through guerrilla warfare on the Syrian border.

I've never read a book on leadership quite like this. Ron Cantor's approach is totally unique. This is not a book of pithy motivational poster quotes. Ron is honest and vulnerable.
