Respect to Beverly Hills Mayor Jimmy Delshad on naming a street after Theodore Herzl!

From YNet News
This is by far one of the best days of my life,” Delshad said at the ceremony. The Jewish mayor spoke about his childhood in Iran and the inspiration he drew from Herzl’s phrase, “If you will, it is no fairytale.”

“This saying was behind me my entire life,” he said. “As a young man, I never dreamed that one day I would be here, as the mayor of Beverly Hills, recognizing the visionary of the State of Israel, Theodor Herzl.”

I found two other Herzl Streets: Herzl Street in Brooklyn, NY and of course there is Herzl St, in Memphis. Because Memphis rocks.
