That Israel and Iran have tense relations is a grave understatement. Recently, however, Tehran has changed its tune from pure belligerence to somewhat diplomatic. Israel, or it’s leader Netanyahu, however, is having none of it. To put it mildly he doesn’t trust Rouhani as far as he can throw him. He called him a wolf in a sheep’s clothing openly at an international forum (UN General Assembly to be precise) and warned the world it would regret trusting it.
Netanyahu apparently slipped a bit during an interview recently when he commented, "I think if the Iranian people had freedom, they would wear jeans, listen to Western music, and have free elections."
That statement drew a barbed reaction from Iran where, though women are required to cover their hair and wear loose clothing in public, jeans are not forbidden at all and though Western music is illegal, but people find ways to enjoy it every day.

Yes, the sudden change of tune from Iran is suspicious and it pays to be a bit skeptical, but Netanyahu just might end up being the bad guy in the entire situation if he is not careful.
