It must be Gas Chambers the Iranians are constructing not Nuclear Missiles. There is a large Jewish community in Iran who will no doubt be first to try them out.
There are 25,000 Persian Jews in Iran, and there are 250,000 Persian Jews in Israel.
edit on 4-12-2011 by bigyin because: I'm obviously anti-semetic
Once again - how does the fact that 25K jews (Neturei Karta) live in Iran changes anything?
If you want to talk about their Jewish community, atleast do so in an objective manner.
Before 1970 there were more than 100,000 Jews in Iran. From your own link, which you have edited out for some reason (I wonder why :@@
Iran's Jewish population was reduced from 100,000–150,000 in 1948 to about 80,000 immediately before the Iranian Revolution, due mostly to immigration to Israel. While immigration to Israel had slowed in the 1970s and the Jewish population of Iran had stabilized, the majority of Iran's remaining Jews left the country in the aftermath of the overthrow of the Shah. The current Jewish population of Iran is estimated by most sources to be 25,000
Ok, so the 25K Jews is a figure that is constantly decreasing.
Iranian population is 75,330,000 as of 2011. So the Jewish community in Iran is something between 0.0004% and 0.0003% of the general population, while this number is constantly decreasing.
Now compare this to another country.. say.. Israel for example.
In 1970, there were around 310,000 Arabs which composed 11.50% of the Israeli population (3,090,000).
In 1995, there were around 702,000 Arabs which composed 15.21% of the Israeli population (4,680,000)
in 2000, there were around 1,006,400 Arabs which composed 16.8% of the Israeli population (6,290,000)
And those figures are constantly increasing.
*Stop mentioning the 25K Jews living in Iran as if it is a demographic miracle or a very tolerant behavior of the Iranian government.
*Stop saying Israeli is an oppressive/racist regime.
Or, most importantly..
*Stop mentioning any of these while discussing a topic with hardly any relevance to this demographic issue!
I'm sorry for this vile derailing of the original topic but something has to be done to shut this "LOLZ 25K JEWS IN IRAN IM RIGHT UR WRONG" idiocy that is looming around here.

I'd have started a new thread but my post count is too low, perhaps one of you guys would like too.
Server not found
Firefox can't find the server at www.presstv.com
So your mad because I am simply saying we shouldn't be over there? Your calling me a troll, because I am not agreeing with your agenda which is probably saying we should take action, against someone who isn't bothering us here.
My example was stating we have problems here with thugs in the states, but if you think this is the Mid East then you can call them Hamas, Al Qaeda or Muslim Brotherhood if that toots your whistle. Hamas, Al Qaeda and Muslim brotherhood are nothing but thugs as well just stirring up problems for the locals over there...Wake up
If whatever they do or say is bothering you then go over there, and deal with it...
Also its darn near impossible for Iran to destroy Jews everywhere your delusional you need help immediately the media propaganda has brainwashed your poor soul...
All of Iran huh?
So you are sitting in the US writing this?
That would be the same US that wanted to kill natives everywhere they were found?
The same US that wanted to enslave Africans everywhere they were found?
That same US that apparently now wants to kill Muslims everywhere they are found?
