    The Assyro-Chaldean churches further called on US officials to focus on their own domestic issues and engage in “effective and constructive relations with all governments” instead of interfering in their internal affairs.

    They also condemned Washington’s support for the warmongering regimes of Israel and Saudi Arabia, calling on the US to stop supporting the bloody wars in Syria and Yemen.

    They further noted that Iranian religious minorities need no “guardian” in their homeland and are able to defend their rights through their representatives at the parliament and related government institutions.

    The official religion of Iran is Shia Islam under the Constitution. The Islamic Republic recognizes Zoroastrian, Jewish, and Christian religious minorities, among others.

    The Constitution stipulates that “the investigation of individual beliefs is forbidden,” and that “no one may be molested or taken to task simply for holding a certain belief.”

    The US, however, has long been seeking to represent itself as a defender of the rights of Iranian religious minorities, accusing the Islamic establishment of intolerance towards them.

    Such accusations have seen a sharp rise since the inauguration of President Donald Trump.

    In late July, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo took to Twitter to attack Iran’s Islamic establishment again, claiming religious minorities, including Jews, Christians and Sunni Muslims, “live in fear” at home.

    The department under Pompeo’s watch also released its annual “religious freedom report" in late May, in which it targeted Iran besides Washington’s other adversaries, including Russia and China.

    for further information ---speak to persons of the Christian, Jewish,
    Bahai, Zoroastrian religions who have fled Iran. All four groups
    have been decimated to the point accepted as reaching the
    DEFINITION OF GENOCIDE

    You mean due to the revolution of 1979, which the MEK terrorist group was behind and now they are backing a coup in Iran, must be getting paid from Israel and SA.

    The largest Jewish population in the Middle East, after Israel, is in Iran.

    Judaism is a protected religion listed in the Iranian national constitution.

    And by law a seat in the Iranian parliament is specifically reserved for a Jewish representative. .... :cool:

    so? the FACT is that the jewish population in Iran has been
    decimated to the point that it reaches the DEFINITION OF GENOCIDE. -----down approximately 90% in the past 60
    years. A virtual KINDERTRANSPORT commenced from
    Iran to the USA and Israel in the late 1960s I remember it well.
    It coincided with the rise of Islamic fundamentalism in that besieged land. The genocide of Zoroastrians is old news----
    but is actually coincident with a parallel genocide of jews and
    flight eastward. ----generally by sea. The seaport MUMBAI
    is chock full of the descendants of Zoroastrians and Jews that
    fled Iran (and Iraq). Ayatoilet Khomeini also galvanized a big-
    time persecution of Bahais which persists. Fret not-----there are too few of any of those minorities left, to be an issue.
    WATTA surprise----there are more jews in Iran than in Egypt ---
    ASTOUNDING ----after a sojourn of more than 3000 years a
    whole over-estimate of 10,000, remain.
