Jews of Iran are Far Better Off Than Palestinians of Gaza

The Jews of Iran are Far Better Off Than Palestinians of Gaza

by Mike Whitney [*]

There are 25,000 Jews in Iran, which is the largest Jewish population in the Middle East outside Israel. Iranian Jews are not persecuted or abused, in fact, they are protected under the Iranian constitution. They are free to practice their religion and to vote in elections. They are not stopped and searched at checkpoints, are not brutalized by an army of occupation and are not confined in a densely populated penal colony (Gaza) where they are deprived of the basic means of subsistence. Iranian Jews live in dignity and enjoy the benefits of citizenship.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is demonized by Western media. He is called anti-Semitic and a “new Hitler.” But if these allegations were true, then why did the majority of Iranian Jews vote for Ahmadinejad in the recent presidential elections?
