The Jews of Iran – the largest (non-Israeli) Jewish community in the Middle East

Facts that you don’t hear from the Zionist lobby

Many people are probably not aware of it, but Iran has the largest Jewish population (outside Israel) in the Middle East.  Some 25,000.  There are 25 synagogues in Tehran itself.  It’s strange really, when you listen to rancid demagogues like Benjamin Netanyahu, who compare the leader of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to Hitler,   to ponder over this fact. 

After Krystal Nacht in November 1938, there were no Jewish synagogues in Berlin, they were all burnt out.  There were no functioning synagogues in the whole of Germany as they were also the targets of arson by the SA thugs or damaged beyond repair.  Hitler’s aim was a Judenrein [Jewish free] Germany, and to that effect deportations of Germany’s population began in October 1941. 

Yet in the capital city of the new Hitler’s lair lives a large Jewish community and 25 functioning synagogues.  Of course the obvious explanation is that the demogague and propagandist Netanyahu, with his American accent, is a liar. A liar on behalf of Western imperialism.  But they were powerful lies since none of the mass media are prepared to counter these lies.  The difference between Iran and Nazi Germany is so obvious it barely needs stating.

That was quite a read. Case closed as far as I'm concerned...

Dec. 14 -- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday called the extermination of 6 million Jews during World War II a "myth," bringing a new cascade of international condemnation onto a government that is increasingly viewed as radical even within Iran.

"They have created a myth in the name of the Holocaust and consider it above God, religion and the prophets," Ahmadinejad said in an address carried live on state television.

Well It was expected that you will get so far ........

You don't cite your sources and if it is Memri don't bother. My understanding is that he hasn't been so explicit, but just for the sake of argument, just suppose he had said this.

It is the natural reaction of many who see Israel using the 6 million Jews the Nazis killed to justify further atrocities. They see Israel behaving toward the Palestinians as the Nazis did, so much so that you get the obscenity of vile racism in the name of the murdered millions


So given that neo-Nazis and other trash visit the 'holocaust' memorial Yad Vashem, based virtually on top of the massacred village of Deir Yassin, is it any wonder that some deny the holocaust?

What is so special about the dead of yesterday that their ghosts should be summoned to murder today?

Well this is a real pearl of an intellectual genius.

So it is ok for you to deny the holocaust because trash visit yad Vashem.
Wow that is a real argument to defend Holocaust deniers.....

mark said...

What is the difference between Paul Eisen and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
Please explain how come you endorse Holocaust denier Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and criticize Holocaust denier Paul Eisen.....
Are they not both Holocaust deniers......

Tony Greenstein said...

No it's no wonder that Rabbi Nissim Zeev of Shas, Danny Danon and Ayoub Kara of Likud all hold hands with holocaust deniers outside Yad vashem.

After all if your alliance is with the haters of Muslims, the common enemy, then you have a lot in common. Who cares about the holocaust. Certainly not the Zionists who turned their back on the victims when it was happening.

That is why Israel's Foreign Minister, not some minor MKs can welcome the Lithuanian Foreign Minister Adroniums Azubalis, who wishes to rehabilitate Juozas Ambrazevičius, the pro-Nazi Lithuanian puppet Prime Minister of 1941. How many Jews died in Lithusania? The Kovno Ghetto and Lithuania, the Jerusalem of Poland?

You stepped into the cesspool Mark and you stink. Ahmedinajad picks up holocaust denial as a means of rebutting Zionist claims, as the far intelligent Zionist propagandists understand. You understand nothing. Anti-Semitism came from your new found Christian fundamentalist friends not from the Muslims who protected them.

Jews died in Europe at the hands of scum like Ambrazevičius, not Ahmedinajad, who is a reactionary to be sure but particularly anti-Semitic. Did 25 synagogues remain in Lithuania after your friends had murdered the Jews? Do tell us.

Eisen is a pro-Nazi. I'm not aware that Ahmedinajad is. That is the difference between him and Eisen.

The question you should ask is why holocaust denying trash should visit Yad Vashem - I don't mean Ayub Khan and his ilk but John Vorster and Franz Joseph Strauss.

And whilst your at it. Why did Israel shelter the father of the gas chamber, one Walter Rauff, who tried to build an extermination camp in Tunisia, except that the whole population opposed it unlike in much of Europe.

Let's face it. Israel is a victory of the ideas of Hitler and the growth of a Jewish community in Germany is its defeat.

Zionism even bases its Law of Return on a Nazi definition of what it is to be Jewish!!

"Eisen is a pro-Nazi. I'm not aware that Ahmedinajad is. That is the difference between him and Eisen."

in what sense is Eisen Nazi more then Ahmedinajad Idiot, Eisen host a Holocaust denier convention.

No wonder you did not publish the informative comments, as you are afraid of the truth, that your readers will find out who the hell you are.
from my side, you are useless.

Tony Greenstein said...

I published 2 of your 4 comments. the rest were too boring. Eisen is a European who openly identifies with the Hitler traditional, read his 'holocaust wars'. Ahmedinajad comes from a country which had no tradition of anti-Semitism. Denying the holocaust means denying the legitimacy of Israel, since Israeli apologists weaponise the holocaust for their own purposes, having ignored it when it was happening.

Just look at Ben Gurion's record, which prompted his official biographer Shabtain Teveth to suggest that he considered the holocaust a 'beneficial opportunity'. To Ahmedinajad and other Arabs, who without any tradition of anti-Semitism, the Holocaust is a European phenomenon which brought the calamity of Zionism upon them.

That is the difference between Eisen and Ahmedinajad and if u don't see that 104 posts of yours will make no difference.

"Ahmedinajad comes from a country which had no tradition of anti-Semitism"......
"The 1910 Shiraz blood libel was a pogrom of the Jewish quarter in Shiraz, Iran, on October 30, 1910, sparked by accusations that the Jews had ritually killed a Muslim girl. In the course of the pogrom, 12 Jews were killed and about 50 were injured,[1] and 6,000 Jews of Shiraz were robbed of all their possessions.[1] The event was documented by the representative of the Alliance Israélite Universelle in Shiraz.Jamshid Sedaghat, a historian in Shiraz, has said attacks happened annually during the late 19th century,"

"SUMKA was an Iranian neo-Nazi group that is otherwise known as Hezb-e Sosialist-e Melli-ye Kargaran-e Iran or the Iran National-Socialist Workers group."

"In the 1839 Allahdad incident, the Jews of Mashhad, Iran, now known as the Mashhadi Jews, were coerced into converting to Islam."

I guess this is boring news too ..... I am sure you think people are fools...........

mark said...

"Denying the holocaust means denying the legitimacy of Israel".

So according to your logic, it is legitimate to deny the Holocaust if you wish to deny the the legitimacy of Israel.........

Tony Greenstein said...

No you fool. Israel's propagandists, people like yourself, continually use the holocaust you did nothing to stop, to justify Israel's barbarities and genocide. Is it any wonder, that in these circumstances the more politicalaly naive draw the equation that if you deny the holocaust you deny Israel's legitimacy and right to exist as a racist state?

It's quite a simple argument so stop trying to distort it (or maybe you don't understand it to begin with ).

I didn't say there was no repression or conflict between Jews and Muslims during the Ottoman era or before. Trying actually reading what I write. I said that it was the penetration of French and British imperialism that laid the basis for hostilities, eg. the singling out of Jews as a privileged minority by the imperialists, as the British had done with the East African Asians in kenya and Uganda, that laid the basis for hostility.

If u weren't so pig ignorant you would know that 2 days before the 1839 attacks in Shiraz, the Iranian army had been forced to withdraw defeated to Mashad as a result of Russian-British military conflicts in which the Iranians had been drawn into battle. It was this that led to the turbulence that followed. Just try reading something other than your usual propaganda tracts eg. 'The Crypto Jewish Mashadis - Hilda Nissimi, 2007 Sussex Academic Press).

As I have already explained to you, though clearly it's gone in one ear and out of the next, there was no religious tradition of the blood libel in Muslim lands. It was a wholly Christian import and the 1840 Damascus Affair in which Moses Montefiore became so involved was a consequence of French involvement.

But since the Christian fundamentalists are your allies today you have to keep quiet on such things and instead blame the oppressed, being a good racist Zionist.

Mark said...

"Eisen is a pro-Nazi." yes he is, so is Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad granted the Nazi and Holocaust denier Robert Faurisson an award for "courage" in Tehran on 2 February 2012.....
Already in 1987, the Iranian embassy had a check for 120,000 francs to the neo-Nazi bookstore Ogmios.
Moreover, 13 April 2010, the French extreme right, was received with great pomp by Seyed Mehdi Miraboutalebi, Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Paris (
Since that time, many representatives of the French extreme right have made trips to Iran and were received by Ahmadinejad. Citons parmi ceux-là : Yahia Gouasmi (fondateur du centre Zahra, une officine chiite du régime en France (5). Among these include: Yahia Gouasmi (founder of Zahra center, a pharmacy Shiite regime in France (5) Dieudonné, Maria Poumier Skandrani and Ginette (two denial activists), and Paul-Eric Blanrue. Werlet Thomas, the head of French Solidarity Party (6) was received by Husseini, the Minister of "culture" of the dictatorship, in the "5th International Digital Media Fair & Festival" held in Tehran from 9 to 15 October 2011. So quite officially a delegation of this small group of close activist "ethno-differentialist" Kemi Seba (eg Tribu Ka Movement damned imperialism MDI) s 'visited Tehran trip in a plane specially chartered by the regime. And when they pass in Iran-Press TV (Iranian television in English), the Fars News Irna or regularly open their columns and tend their mics people like Alain Soral, Maria Poumier, Faurisson, Ginette Skandrani or neo-Nazi activist Peter Rushton English (7).

Ahmadinejad is pro Nazi too.....
keep on cursing.........

Tony Greenstein said...

I don't curse you Mark, just pity you.

If Ahmadinejad was 'pro-Nazi' Iran wouldn't be host to the largest Jewish community in the Middle East. Some 25 Jewish synagogues in Tehran alone. Strange but Hitler burnt synagogues he didn't encourage them.

If the barbarities of the Israeli state are dressed up in the rhetoric of being anti-Nazi it's no surprise that some Arabs are taken in. But that is not pro-Nazi.

Faurisson is a nobody. THe meeting between Lieberman and his Lithuanian counterpart Adroniums Azubalis is far more interesting. So interesting that you deliberately ignore it! I wonder why? And all those visits, courtesy of senior Likud and Shas members to Yad Vashem by neo-Nazis.

Or the opening of a concentration camp in the Negev for Eritrean asylum seekers - shades of the past?

Neo-nazi bookstores? What did it sell Torat HaMelech by rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu on how murdering non-Jewish babies was acceptable. Do tell, I'm interested.

Ah but I forgot. Mark got in the killer punch.

'Moreover, 13 April 2010, the French extreme right, was received with great pomp by Seyed Mehdi Miraboutalebi, Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Paris'

I'm not sure if Mark takes exception to this or not! Surely he is not unaware of the meeting between Mme Marine Le Pen and Ron Prossor, Israel's Ambassador to the UN and former Ambassador to the UK, as reported on Ha'aretz of 11.11.09.

Given that Marine Le Pen represents the main bulk of pro-fascist and neo-Nazi sentiment in France I expect Mark's next message to do some explaining? Or will he ignore such 'inconvenient' facts?!!!

Compared to the no-marks (no pun intended) that Mark quotes, the above meeting is of more than some interest.
