Israelis, Iranians and Turks march together at Pride in Cologne...

This is really nice to see...
The Israeli delegation arrived by special invitation from the city of Cologne. As they marched carrying Israeli flags alongside the rainbow flags, Iranians joined them carrying Iranian flags from the Shah period, before the Islamic Revolution.

One Iranian said he was forced to flee Iran just a month ago after his face as an activist in the gay community appeared alongside an Israeli.

The Israeli delegation marched at the front of the parade along with Cologne's mayor Jurgen Rutters.

"Even Turks joined us together with representatives from Russia, Ukraine and other states where it is hard to be gay," Adir Steiner said to Ynet.

Yes, it is nice to see. If only the Iranian revolution had been successful, the world would have been a better place today.
Better luck to them next time.
