    It does seem a bit silly to have to remind some here about the "love" those "peaceful" Mideast Islamic countries have for Jews but:

    UN drug agency head slams anti-Jewish Iran remarks
    The Associated Press

    VIENNA -- The head of the U.N.'s drug fighting agency and the U.S. State Department have criticized anti-Jewish remarks made by an Iranian vice president last week.

    A United Nations Office for Drugs and Crime statement says agency chief Yury Fedotov expressed "his dismay and serious concern" while meeting with a senior unidentified Iranian diplomat in Vienna "about the anti-Semitic comments of Iranian Vice President Mohammad Reza Rahimi."

    Rahimi was cited by Iranian media and on President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's website as saying at the June 26 anti-drugs meeting in Tehran that "the spread of narcotics in the world emanates from the teachings of the Talmud ... whose objective is the destruction of the world." The Talmud is the Jewish book of laws.

    Ahmadinejad called for Israel to be wiped off the face of the map in 2005.

    In Washington on Tuesday, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland issued a statement condemning what she called "Rahimi's vile anti-Semitic and racist comments."

    The use of drugs is promoted in the talmud? I am delighted-----I thought that the muslims had run out of material.

    Prior to this thread becoming a repository for the entire inventory of youtube's video vault of Jewish citizens living in Iran and their happy-fun lives and livelihoods, please consider supplying:

    When and where was the video taken? Was the video shot in Iran with "minders" present? Please provide some background regarding what is copied and pasted.

    Did the video'ee and the video'or agree on distribution of the video? Is the video'ee really going to speak openly about his or her situation in Iran if they know they and / or their family members may disappear in the night?

    Iran's Mullahs love Jews as much as Islam is peaceful.

    .....as much as their version of Islam is peaceful....

    It's all in the interpretation: each religious community has some unsavory and even despicable members lurking among the faithful!

    Fair enough. But there's fringe lunatics and then there's The Islam™.

    I just haven't read any reports of heavily armed Lutherans raking a bus full of Presbyterians with machinegun fire.

    Is there ANYONE who disagres that while not all Muslims are world terrorists, the overwhelming majority of world terrorists are Muslims?

    Maybe it's just me but I don't see the Jewish community in Iran breaking out the party hats and noisemakers. This, in spite of some on this board telling us in almost glowing terms how well members of the Jewish faith are treated.



    The Jews of Iran

    Jews of Iran


    1948 Jewish population: 100,000

    2004: ~20,000-25,0001


    The Council of the Jewish Community, which was established after World War II, is the representative body of the community. The Jews also have a representative in parliament who is obligated by law to support Iranian foreign policy and its Anti-Zionist position.



    At least 13 Jews have been executed in Iran since the Islamic revolution, 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.

    Funny you would mention that. According to Wikipedia, Iran effectively holds hostage the family of any Iranian Jew (and only the Jews) who is traveling abroad:
    "With the exception of certain business travelers, the authorities require Jews to obtain clearance and pay additional fees before each trip abroad. The Government appears concerned about the emigration of Jewish citizens and permission generally is not granted for all members of a Jewish family to travel outside the country at the same time."
