Iranian student apologizes to Israel
Young Iranian woman studying in Budapest sends apology letter to Israeli embassy following Iranian president's call to wipe Israel off map
It seems that not all Iranians are against Israel. Workers at the Israeli embassy in Budapest, Hungary, were surprised to receive an apology letter from a female Iranian student, referring to the remark of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that "Israel should be wiped off the map," Israel's leading newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reported.


"I feel so ashamed and I am sure that many Iranians share my feelings," the Iranian wrote in a letter sent by e-mail to the embassy, under the title "We are very very sorry."


The 29-year-old Iranian woman, who is currently studying in a Budapest university, wrote to the embassy that the reason she was sending the e-mail were the words of the president of the Islamic Republic of Iran regarding Israel.


She added that she was ashamed of the incident, as were many other Iranians.


The student ended her letter with the hope that one day Israelis and Iranians could live together in peace again.


Yahel Vilan, deputy to the Israeli ambassador to Hungary, immediately thanked the student for her moving words.
