4500 Toman a kilo is 10 Shekels a kilo. Israelis pay at least 25 shekels a kilo for cherries. If this story is true, I am joining Da phne Lee f
3. When they want Israeli goods/services, they get them
Raymond in DC ,   Washington, USA   (06.27.12)
Israeli goods, from agricultural produce to high tech equipment, regularly finds its way to Arab and Muslim countries - sometimes via third party countries. I recall a certain Israeli urologist years ago who was called upon by folks in *Saudi Arabia* because some of the sheikhs were experiencing certain ... problems. (I'll say no more.) They got him into the Kingdom, he dealt with his patients, and was no doubt well paid for his services. Folks in the region are welcome to rip open their personal computers. They might find the Intel CPU was made in ... Israel.

Chaya ,   Bat Yam   (06.28.12)
It is not the Iranian people I have the problem with. Last night I participated in a Tweet Storm tor the release of a human rights activist who is sitting in an Iranian prison - Narges Homammadi. Maybe one day soon we will be able to import their pistachios again.
13. Israeli cherries sold in Iranian markets
Harold ,   USA   (06.29.12)
False Story. Iran has the best fruits in the world including cheries. Their dry fruits and nuts including pistachios are exported to all the world before the West and Israeli export sanctions. In other word they, the Iranian, never need to import any foreign fruits and nuts.
14. Cherries
sam davies ,   jerusalem israel   (06.29.12)
13. Harold - "In other word they, the Iranian, never need to import any foreign fruits and nuts." Correct, they have more than enough fruits and nuts of their own.
