JNS reports: An Israeli soccer player and the captain of the Iranian national team took to the Internet to show that the people of Iran and the people of Israel do not harbor hate.

“In soccer, there are different rules, and there is one language without prejudice and without wars,” Maccabi Haifa and Israel National Team player Maor Buzaglo posted in Hebrew on Facebook and Twitter. “The captain of the Iranian national team and I show it can be different.”

Buzaglo posted a picture of himself sitting on a table with Ashkan Dejagah, Iran’s national team captain. Dejagah refused to play with the German Under 21 team in Israel in 2007, but said he had declined out of fear that he would be jailed by the regime if he ever went back to Iran.
