Has the Bravo network birthed a political pundit?

Moments before Netanyahu was scheduled to address Congress on Tuesday, "Shahs Of Sunset" star Reza Farahan took to HuffPost Live and weighed in on tensions in the Middle East, declaring that he's "totally in support" of the Israeli Prime Minister.

"If he wants to bomb Iran, I'm totally in support of him," the Tehran-born Farahan said. "I'm down for bombing Iran."

"I think we should've invaded Iran instead of Iraq," he continued, "Because the Iranians would've appreciated it and they would've been liberated, whereas the Iraqis didn't want us there and they don't appreciate it."

Farahan, whose mother is Muslim and father is Jewish, recently labeled Iran "a bully." With Netanyahu's intervention, he thinks this could perhaps change.

"Sanctions on Iran," Farahan urged. "And bomb the bad people in Iran -- and help them! Liberate them! They want to be free."
