Iran. Anti-Semitic? Not.

I was recently impressed by a news article from Iran which showed the prime minister, president, and Revolutionary Guards standing in respect in front of a memorial monument to thirteen Iranian Jewish soldiers who had been killed in the Iran-Iraq war.

It was quite touching to see the Muslim leaders paying their respects while a rabbi in Teheran recited the kaddish prayer in Hebrew at the site.

Jews worldwide and in particular here in Israel have been anti-Iran since the 1979 revolution which overthrew Shah Reza Pahlavi and installed Ayatollah Khomeini as leader of the country whose name had been changed from the Kingdom of Iran to the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Iranians hang homosexuals and drug addicts. They neither hang nor persecute the 8000 Jews who live peacefully in Iran. There is even a Jewish member serving in the Iranian parliament.

There are synagogues in every major city and there are rabbis who officiate at Jewish services.

The Iranian government has placed only oneā€¦. one single restriction upon the rabbis. And that is that they should not preach about Israel in their synagogues, nor demonstrate any loyalty to Israel.

6. Should it matter and is the link not working for you to make that determination on your own?
