1)Jews of Iran can leave the country like any other citizen of the country...& they do and return. Many have family in Israel and come to Israel via a third country and then return to Iran; the idea of an 'open prison' is absurd. 2)Jewish holy places in Tehran, Isfahan, Hamedan (where tombs of Daniel, Esther and Mordechai are), Yazd, Kerman etc is open and run by the Iranian Jewish organisations. 3)under the Iranian constitution, voice of Jewish compatriots is guaranteed by having at least one Jewish deputy. 4) There is no restriction to teaching of Hebrew at Jewish schools and Jewish students attend universities. Pre-Islam, population of Iran was by some accounts 1/3 Zoroastrian, 1/3 Christian & 1/3 Jewish. 5) After Muslim conquest most of the population converted....not necessarily by force either. Iranian Jews grace the Iranian society as do the Assyrian & Zoroastrians of the country. We are related by blood. I, as an Iranian for one, love my Jewish compatriots. STOP THE LYING!
