Familiar face graces article in Iranian newspaper
Lieberman's trim beard is what apparently made an impression on the editors of Iranian weekly Ya-Lasrat when they decided to use his photograph in the article "Religious beliefs behind unjust dismissal of another Iranian in the US".
The editors had no idea the picture they selected was none other than Israel's vice prime minister, minister of strategic affairs, and head of the Israel Our Home party.
Ya-Lasrat is published by Islamic fundamentalist party "Ansar Hizbullah", which despite the shared name, is not connected with the Lebanese terror group.
