The Jew population in Iran is the second biggest in the Middle East after Israel.
They're probably safer there than in Paris or Belgium.
Iran had 200,000 jews. They lived there for thousands of years.

Now, there are less than 10,000. It is true they are not persecuted.

Although many many were put to death when the Iranian Islamic revolution came to power.

But what happened was after a number of executions, a Jewish industrialist asked for an audience with the supreme leader. As a result of that audience, the supreme leader issued a fatwa along the lines of "the Jews of Iran are to be protected, and they are separate to the zionists". So that became the law.

In the same manner, for example, as he issued a fatwa on homosexuals, stating homosexuality was a disease, and homosexuals would be cured by a sex change operation... these statements (or whims) all become the law of the land...

But sure, Jews are today tolerated in Iran as a second class of citizenship. I think the bible is banned, too. Whoopdeefuckindoo, what an absolutely enlightened regime. - as long as they are deadly enemies of Israel, the Yanks, and English, the sun must shine out of their arse, isn't that right, Taigh and co.

The Bible is not banned in Iran. As for those Jews who were executed - where they executed for being Jews? I very much doubt it.

What do you expect when wealthy jew businessmen in Israel are offering financial incentives and bribes to Iranian Jews to come to Israel (to boost their population against the rising Palestinian Arab demographic).
Likewise the jewish population in Ireland has almost halved since the creation of Israel.
Why wouldn't they go and live in the country of yearly handouts from the U.S?

Interesting you would use Ireland as an example
We have a very poor history where Jews are concerned, where enlightened people like yourself stirred up hatred resulting in programs by using centuries old rhetoric, I presume they, like you, thought is was new thinking.

Hah!
Jews are the most molly-cuddled and cossetted demographic in Ireland.
People bend over backwards to appease them.

The Bible may not be banned.

However.....

'A few days ago, Iran's foreign minister tweeted "a very happy and peaceful Christmas to all."
I wonder what the Christians jailed this month in Iran would think about that tweet,
I wonder what Iranian youth would think about that tweet, but sadly the regime bans Twitter.
Except, of course, if you're a high ranking official.
Now imagine you're praying quietly in your home, surrounded by your family.
And all of a sudden, armed thugs burst in and drag you away to prison.
They torture you merely for practicing your Christian faith.
Welcome to Iran.
Saying "Merry Christmas" while jailing Christians in your own country is the height of hypocrisy.
If you stand for freedom, share this message.
If you stand against hypocrisy, share this message.
And above all, say a quiet prayer for our Christian brothers and sisters who are suffering at the hands of this cruel Iranian regime.
We stand with you, brothers and sisters.
The world stands with you.'

- Bibi Netanyahu.

Like you, Netanyahu is a pathological liar and that is fake news.

Christians do just fine in Iran, as do Jews.

Theres bugger all Jews in Iran, less than 10,000. Thats less than the number of Hindus in Ireland. The Jewish population is small enough to pass under the radar.
The Jewish population in Ireland is small enough to pass under the radar and relative to population size its proportionally three times larger than the Jewish population of Iran,

Everyone 'does fine' in your favourite scumbag Islamic republic, and are happy
with their lot.:rolleyes:

..........Oh wait!!:smiley:
You must be talking about Saudi Arabia, which is no favourite of mine, but of course you love it.

There is nothing scummy about the Islamic Republic of Iran. Ask the 10,000 Jews living there. They love the place.

I'd ask you to ask the Jews in Saudi Arabia too, but there aren't any, as Jews are banned in that scummy Islamic Republic.

Quite laughable that the ZioNazis are pretending to care about Christians. Maybe if the Zionists stopped spitting on Christians in the streets and defacing their churches we might take their "concern" more seriously. And nobody in Iran is jailed for practicing their faith. Any Christians who are in jail in Iran are there for criminal offenses.

Given the financial intensives that Iranian Jews are offered to emigrate to the Zionist Colony, it's really quite surprising there are any left in Iran at all. They must really love to place to stay.

That is one of the most cynical , opportunistic, hypocritical and insincere statements that I have have ever read from a politician.
I'm surprised that anyone is stupid enough to post or believe it.

Well the thing about Iran is that it has quite a few laws that are just not enforced, for instance technically alcohol is illegal but the Iranians drink like Ulster folk a lot of the time, technically conversion from Islam is illegal but the State doesn't have an actual problem with it as long as it is conversion one of Christian Churches that have historical roots in Iran however they take a completely different attitude towards the Pentecostals but this is essentially for political reasons the Pentecostal are very often tied up with or have links to the CIA as well serving very often to spread American ideology in the "Third World". The Islamic Republic also isn't exactly of the Bahai who are a very weird Religion different from both Islam, Christianity and Zorastarianism which from some strange reason is militantly Zionist.
