Freedom for Iran?
What about those pesky ole Jews eh?

Under IzlamoNazi rule, throughout the 19th century, Jews in Iran were persecuted and regularly discriminated against.

Tens of thousands of Iranians staged anti-Israel protests across the country Friday and repeated calls by their ultraconservative president who repeated the words of the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, founder of Iran’s Islamic revolution, by saying: ‘Israel must be wiped off the map.’

A ghetto in Iran where Jews were:”kept”:

i-ranghettojews

Entire communities were forced to convert.
Religion of Peace, remember?

No wonder, the 19th century, saw considerable emigration to the Land of Israel from Iran.

After the overthrow of the shah of Iran and the declaration of an Izzzzzzzzzzlamic state in 1979, Iran proceeded to sever relations with –you guessed it! : none other than Israel.

Iran supports the IzlamoNazi terrorist organizations that target all Jews and Israelis, most especially– their favorite: Hezbullah.

Some largely unknown facts:

On the eve of Passover in 1999, 13 Jews from Shiraz and Isfahan in southern Iran were arrested and accused of spying for Israel and the United States.

Those arrested include a rabbi, a ritual slaughterer and teachers.

In September 2000, an Iranian appeals court upheld a decision to imprison ten of the thirteen Jews accused of spying for Israel.

In the appeals court, ten of the accused were found guilty of cooperating with Israel and were given prison terms ranging from two to nine years.

Three of the accused were found innocent in the first trial.5 In March 2001, one of the imprisoned Jews was released, a second was freed in January 2002, the remaining eight were set free in late October 2002. The last five apparently were released on furlough for an indefinite period, leaving them vulnerable to future arrest…

(Jerusalem Post, (January 16, 2002); Washington Jewish Week, (October 31, 2002).

What about the 13 Jews executed in IRAN for um..”just being Jewish”?
I know.
Ya never heard of ‘em.
Most haven’t.

At least 13 Jews have been executed in Iran since the Islamic revolution 19 years ago, most of them for either religious reasons or their connection to Israel.

For example, in May 1998, Jewish businessman Ruhollah Kakhodah-Zadeh was hanged in prison without a public charge or legal proceeding, apparently for assisting Jews to emigrate.

(U.S. Department of State, 2001 Annual Report on International Religious Freedom, Released by the Bureau for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor Washington, DC, (October 26, 2001).

Wear green in solidaridarity with Iranian um..”freedom fighters”?..Fat chance.
My solidarity is not with Hezbullah founder and supporter Mousavi, who charmingly said: Israel is a “cancerous tumor.”

Who Is Mir Hossein Mousavi Khameneh?

In 1989, Mousavi called for Salman Rushdie to be killed.

The Times (London) reported that “Mr Mir-Hossein Mousavi, the Prime Minister, said the Ayatollah Khomeini’s order that Mr Rushdie should be killed ‘will undoubtedly be carried out and the person who has become a tool of Zionists against Islam and brazenly attacked it and the Prophet will be punished’.

It is for the Jews in Iran and all the so called “freedom fighters” who wish the same freedoms for Iranian Jews as they wish for themselves.

I dedicate this English/Farsi version by none other than Bon Jovi– to the memory of Ruhollah Kakhodah-Zadeh, and all those authentically fighting for: FREEDOM. (FOR ALL)

    As far as I can tell, all Moslems hate Jews.

    Well, it is in the Koran — the vilest kind of anti-Semitism, that is.

    “Iran: Freedom for JEWS too?”

    Wishful thinking… I doubt if we will ever see that in our life time. But we can hope.

  3. My Thoughts says:

    Hi and thanks for your reply, I think that I fixed the broken link.

    The entire time I was reading this the poem,”First they came for the Jews” ringed in my head.

    Israel is the only freely and democratically elected government in the middle east,and the only source of civilization there as well.

    It must be protected at all cost,I’d go as far as saying that I would fight for the country if they would let me join their military forces.

  5. TT says:

    Yeah, I know it’s tomorrow, but just in case I can’t come here, I want to wish all of you a very happy 4th of July!

    About the post: I really don’t think that there’s going to be much change in Iran. Not in some time. Even if Moussavi would have won, he belongs to the Islamist stablishment, if not he would never have been able to run for the Presidency.

    Angel. Ahmadinejad said there are no homosexuals in Iran.

    How come every time they arrest somebody they beat and rape them, especially the men. Not just one time, but over and over. The police must love their work, ha.

  7. KarL M says:

    Thanks so much Angel for keeping the plight of Israel and the Jews on the front burner…
    Do me a favor…tell em all..Them Hebrews are here for the long haul…and if they have a problem with that, the LORD can split the Red Sea again, and take them all for a swim!!!!!

  8. My Thoughts says:

    Jerko commemorates Jacko.
    President Barack Obama said that Michael Jackson, who died last week at 50, will “go down in history as one of our greatest entertainers. I grew up on his music.” Obama said that at the same time that he felt Jackson had experienced “a tragic and in many ways sad personal life.”

  9. joe says:

    I didn’t realize that there were still Jews living in that shithole called Iran. Why would anyone even want to?

  10. Julie says:

    Please remember to fly our flag on the 4th.
    I love the USA flag, and what it stands for! . I am grateful to be an American for many reasons. First, Freedom and the second the Opportunity me and my family have been given in this our country of ours. God bless the USA.

    Iran is insidious! More and more tyrANNY!

  12. Gayle says:

    As Michael said, “Israel is the only freely and democratically elected government in the middle east,and the only source of civilization there as well.” The fact that it is the only free and democratically elected government in the middle east certainly only adds to the reason it is so hated by Muslims. They seem to want to live in their barbaric ignorance!

    Great post, Angel. Sorry for not getting around more often, but I’ve been busy. God bless you for the work you do here.

    There is no freedom, liberty or prosperity in Islam, never mind what’s in the koran for just one second, just take something like emigration stats and ask yourself why those from islamic countries leave for countries like America and the others in the western world. Heck, refugees from Africa by pass those glorious muslim nations trying to get to Israel, the supposed apartheid state. A mad world we live in Angel.

    Israel promises to pay compensations to UN after material damages caused in Gaza operation.
    So, when will Palestinians pay for Hamas’ damage caused to Israel?

    Careful, friend – some will not, despite their scriptures. Some of these chaps, for example.

    I’m way on this page’s side against the Islamofascists, but credit where credit’s due when the get with the programme.

    Well, happy birthday America anyway.

    Mullahs of Iran hate every body who is not Muslim, be it Jews, Christians or Hindu. Take my world till these mullah’s are their and alive with their hate messages and terrorist mind..no one including American, Europeans, Israelis and Indian can live freely and happily ……..

    Can you recommend a good book about Israel’s history, and Jewish history in that region. ? I need some fuel to fight those who see this from a the revised history presented in schools and colleges today.

    Check out the post you inspired me to write on the “manifesto” (as I call KOOKs blog that we share 50/50). It is not your subject matter at all, but it is related on many levels. Thank you for the inspiration. When blogs give me new perspectives, I tend to visit them often. Keep up the good work and feel free to repost any of our material that you like.

  21. Andrew33 says:

    While Angel probably knows more than I, A great place to start is the writings of Flavius Josephus here is a small section copied from Wikipedia on him:

    “Josephus (AD 37 – c. 100),[2] also known as Yosef Ben Matityahu (Joseph, son of Matthias) and, after he became a Roman citizen, as Titus Flavius Josephus,[3] was a first-century Jewish historian and apologist of priestly and royal ancestry who survived and recorded the destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70[4]. His works give an important insight into first-century Judaism.
    Josephus was an important apologist in the Roman world for the Jewish people and culture, particularly at a time of conflict and tension. He always remained, in his own eyes, a loyal and law-observant Jew. He went out of his way both to commend Judaism to educated Gentiles, and to insist on its compatibility with cultured Graeco-Roman thought. He constantly contended for the antiquity of Jewish culture, presenting its people as civilised, devout and philosophical. Eusebius reports that a statue of Josephus was erected in Rome.[5]
    Josephus’s two most important works are The Jewish War (c. 75) and Antiquities of the Jews (c. 94).[6] The Jewish War recounts the Jewish revolt against Rome (66–70). Antiquities of the Jews recounts the history of the world from a Jewish perspective. These works provide valuable insight into first century Judaism and the background of early Christianity.[6]”

    As I said, this is only a start. I too would love to know about any such history books which I’m sure there are many that I have not read. I just avoid such literature written from a “Catholic” perspective as it is often “questionable.”
