Beggars apparently can be choosers -- or so the Iranian government seems to believe. The Islamic fundamentalist regime in Iran, which is struggling to recover from the Dec. 26 earthquake that killed at least 20,000 people and damaged an entire region, has announced that it will not accept humanitarian aid from the "Zionist entity." However, U.S. Jews and Israelis still are finding ways to help the victims. And one of the few U.S. nongovernmental organizations running relief on the ground is led by an Iranian American Jew.
