VOI's Yishai Fleisher takes issue with former Iranian president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, who called Israel 'forged and temporary.'
Yishai says that while Iran is a repressed society in which democratic aspirations are quashed, Israel is a beacon of human rights with proven historic staying-power. But, he warns, Israel needs to keep hitting that concept home.
