Jewish MP to Accompany Rouhani at UN General Assembly

JewishPress Logo

Reports indicate that recently elected Iranian President Hassan Rouhani will bring Iran’s only Jewish parliament member to the United Nations General Assembly this week in New York.

Siamak Moreh Sedgh, a 48-year-old physician, has been an Iranian parliament member since 2008. He and Ahmad-Reza Dastgheyb, who is a Muslim, will be the only parliament members accompanying Rouhani to the UN General Assembly, the International Business Times reported.

Sedgh also accompanied former Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to the UN in 2009, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

Though Jewish, Sedgh is an outspoken anti-Zionist. “[Iran’s] Jews will direct their… cries against all servants of imperialism and Zionism,” he said in a 2009 speech.

    It is obvious that Sedgh is being used as cover for the Iranians for their continuing development of nuclear weapons.  The poor, deluded fool!   Working towards the destruction of his own people.  This is similar to the Jewish Kapos at Auschwitz, who pathetically believed that co-operation with the enemy would save them.  This truly shows why Israel must survive for our people.
