It is not every day that one hears of a former Iranian soldier flying
an Israeli flag outside of his home.
Ali Ramezan, however, does.
After having been subjected to torture in the Islamic Republic,
Ramezan fled his home country and settled in Manchester, where he now
supports the State of Israel and is attempting to file charges
against the regime, the Jewish Chronicle (JC) reported.
The 47-year-old veteran of the Iran-Iraq war has been granted
residency in the UK after 11 years of seeking refuge.
“I only watched an anti-government protest, but I was arrested,” he
said. “I have relatives who go out shouting ‘Death to
America,’ ‘Death to Israel.’ I realized it was brainwashing.”
Ramezan is currently in the process of filing charges against the
Iranian government, alleging that restrictions forced to leave his
wife and son behind.
Now, he displays his newfound freedom by waving Israeli and American
flags in the predominantly Muslim neighborhood of Cheethan Hill,
noted the JC.
“People have said I could be firebombed, but I’m not scared to fly my
flags. In Iran they would hang you,” he said. (IsraelNationalNews ©
