Rabbis hail Ahmadinejad's NY visit


www.presstv.ir

"It is sad that so few have actually attempted to speak to the Iranian President or seek the true opinion of Iranian Jewry who live in peace and practice their faith throughout that nation. We have met this man who has demonstrated time and again that he is sincerely interested in the well being of Iran's Jewish community and has deep respect for world Jewry and their Torah faith. The Zionist attempt to socially isolate this man and his people is immoral and disastrous," said the statement.

Interesting perspective these gentlemen have. I agree that people should just talk out their differences and cease attempting to make war for profits.

Didn't they use to tell us as a kid to talk out our problems instead of seeking violent methods? I aso do not believe that either candidate is going to accept the debate challenge by the President either.

Think yall could hook it up with some flags? I am sure it would be nice to see a contrasting perspective in the headline now and then.

Anything coming out of these hot states should be taken with a grain of salt. Either that or watched very closely. Everything is so "political" right now, and nobody is pulling punches anymore. Anything from Press.ir, .ru, or fox should be put under intense scrutiny. We need to start calling out everybody! No exceptions.

This is an interesting perspective. From what I have learned from my Iranian-Jewish friends is that they love their home country. They can easily practice their religion there. There are even several jewish members of parliament in the IRI.

I also watched a documentary on the non-muslim residents of Tehran. I believe there was some Iranian Christians who are given a special license to drink and serve liquor in the country.

I found a video on youtube of Ahmadinejad meeting with the same group back in 2007.


They seem to be getting along quite fine there, I have no doubt they are at the UN now supporting dialogue with him as well.

Yes, there are such groups. They represent several (two, i think) rabbinic "houses". One is called Naturei Karta, the other/s - i do not know. To understand this contradiction it should be known that in beginning of 20th century most of religious groups of Judaism did not agree with Zionism and its leaders. Zionism was secular social movement, close to Communists - but certainly different since it was a national movement. And both sides fought for support among Jewish community ,and the rest of the world. Several religious movements united and tried to push an idea for one country for two nations - not devision. Their were represented by Dutch Jewish writer De Haan - probably too well since he was killed, and it is almost certainly act of Zionist-supporting agents. Both sides went further apart but WW2 that virtually wiped out all religious Jewish European centers, weakening that side , and establishment of state of Israel resulted in certain equilibrium between both sides. But few religious leaders refused to agree with Zionists and these rabbis in the picture are from house of such a leader.
Sorry if it was too long.
Also there are Jews in Iran, they live ordinary life - sometimes there are certain problems but in general community is fine. Those people can come to Israel but only few choose to do so, so i do not think that Iranian are treating Jews in their country very bad.
But the attitude to state of Israel - totally different. And lately things are heating up between the two countries. One of them allegedly has nukes, other is allegedly trying to get those nukes and threats are being thrown and military toys are being shown. I hope it will end non-violently, but frankly i have a bad filling about the issue.

Now why would the mainstream media seek to ask Jewish people who actually LIVE in Iran how they are treated? I mean, obviously they have no idea how they are treated in their own country, so instead, let's just take edited statements, and come up with our own conclusion.

A lot of people find it surprising to know that there are many churches and synangogues in Iran. Although it is an Islamic republic they do practice a high degree of tolerance for other religions. The only religion that I know that is not welcomed by any means is the Bah'ai faith.

Mainstream media won't discuss Jews in Iran because then that might tarnish the view that has developed on the country...ultra fantatical muslims who riot and set fire to flags all day in the street...simply not true.

I wish people would go to Iran or at least learn a little about the rich culture and history and the hospitable people.

Anyway, thank you for posting this informative thread. It is good to see that other perspectives on Iranian State Affairs comes out.

I had only heard about the radical Zionist and evangelical groups planning a mass demonstration at the UN today. I'm glad there are still people who have not been blinded and blindsided by MSM character assassination of Ahmadinejad and demonization of Iran. While I don't agree with Ahmadinejad's verbiage regarding Israel, I find the media's treatment of the whole subject appalling.

Good to see PNAC and the neoconmen haven't sold everyone on nuking Iran.
