    The Persians have been friends of Jews for 3 millennia. Even TODAY Iran has the largest Jewish community outside of Israel in the ME. To forget about many MANY times Persians came to rescue the Jewish people is categorically foolish. I will give you two examples: 1) Cyrus the Great freed the Jews from babylonian capture, he even raised money for them to rebuild their temple. That was 600 years BC. 2) During the Nazi atrocities, Iran issued passports for many of Eastern European Jews and saved them by bringing them to Tehran and afterwards flew them safely to present-day Israel. I grew up in Iran and my best friend was Jewish. I never became aware of religious differences until AFTER I left Iran. In Iran, we were all the same, we were all Iranian, and to be honest, eventhough I am not muslim myself, the Muslim Iranians are pretty secular unlike their arab counterparts. Whether or not that is something you can wrap your mind around is a different story......

Israel’s condemnation of Pride attack is hollow

Behind the pinkwashing, it turns out homophobia in its worst forms exists within the government.
