The Ayatollah legally bars Iranians from doing business with me, because I'm a Jewish Israeli, are we going to talk about that?

Sure. Let's talk about that too. The difference is no one from Israel rely on Iranian platforms but both people of Iran and Israel rely on U.S. tech companies like GitHub and Gitlab so when U.S. tech companies decide to target people by nationality and block them without prior notice (beyond legal obligations) that is alarming for the software community

Did you read the Link I sent?

The Iranian government discriminates against Israelis in exactly the same way that you object to the US government doing against Iranians.

If you object to the US' sanctions against Iran on the basis that they are discriminatory, how do you then justify the Atatollah's antisemitism?
