I was at a business event in Europe this month just after the Ahmadinejad comment, wandering around wearing a badge with my name, company and country on it. A man identified by his badge as a senior executive of one of Iran's larger companies stopped me, put out his hand, smiled and said (and this is a direct quote), "You're from Israel. We are brothers. Don't listen to what the politicians say. That's not what the people think." It was quite moving, actually.
