Iran Herds Jews with Torah Scrolls to Rally for Nukes

The Iranian Propaganda Ministry is getting hard up when it has to herd Jews, most of them elderly, holding Torah scrolls in Tehran to voice support for Iran’s nuclear development.

A group of Iranian Jews demonstrated in front of the United Nations office in Tehran on Tuesday to voice their support for Iran’s right to go nuclear.

They even held Torah scrolls, according to the regime’s official Fars News Agency, which added, “The Jewish demonstrators also performed mass religious ceremonies.”

The photo accompanying the blurb shows enough men, most of them apparently in their 70s and 80s and a couple of young boys with a kippa, for a minyan.

So that “mass religious ceremony” was davening the afternoon prayers? No, that won’t do because there were women, also very elderly, and there was no mechitzah to separate the sexes.

It is not Purim, so they were not reading from the Book of Esther about the Jews in ancient Iran – Persia – who were saved at the last moment from destruction by the Iranian regime’s ancestors.

The Iranian Jews obviously were praying for the government, as all Jews do wherever they live, except for certain groups in Israel who shall remain unnamed.

The Jews also issued a statement, according to Fars, to wit, “We, the Iranian Jews, announce our full support for Iran’s negotiating team in the talks with the Group 5+1 (the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany) and advise the other party to seize this opportunity.”

It is amazing that these people are so well-versed in current events that they can spout off “Group 5+1” so easily, but you know the Jews; we know everything.

In case you think the pro-nuke rally was sincere, the Propaganda Ministry, known as Fars, dispelled all doubts by writing that the Jews stated, “The Iranian Jews insist on standing by their Muslim brothers in defending the right to use peaceful nuclear energy for scientific and economic progress of Iran and supporting global peace.”

How do they know that the Islamic Republic has only peaceful intentions and does not want to annihilate the Iranian Jews’ Jewish brothers in Israel? They know because Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei says so. After all, he issued a  Muslim fatwa religious edict that “the pursuit and possession of nuclear weapons [is] ‘a grave sin’ from every logical, religious and theoretical standpoint.”

“The Jewish demonstrators reiterated that Zionism has nothing to do with Judaism and noted that the Iranian Jews have complete freedom to observe their religious rituals in Iran,” Fars added.

Just to make sure we are not being too cynical, God forbid, The Jewish Press checked in with a local acquaintance whose family is from Iran.

Yes, Jews have religious freedom in Iran, he said.

Yes, the Jews live in fear, he said.

And, yes, it is nonsense to believe that Iranian Jews would initiate on their own a demonstration in favor of nuclear weapons that could wipe out Israel.

But how do the Iranian Jews know that the regime wants to use peaceful nuclear energy for nuclear weapons to destroy Israel.

Of course, they know.

Jews know everything, especially those living in Iran.

    Hey Lindas you muslim slut shut your arab mouth

  5. It is time for Iranian Jews to leave Iran and come to Israel. They have been in Iran (Persia) for thousands of years.

  6. Cody Flecker says:

    Tany Berman I doubt that this young lady is a Muslim. Coming from Colombia where there are plenty of Jewish People, the Muslims do not really have much of a voice, unlike in neighboring Venezuela. As far as Iranian Jews are concerned: they are totally captive to the current regime. The mere fact that the Government is parading them around the streets indicate that the Government is losing ground world wide. Leave it to Obama and the Democrats who hate Israel and the Jewish People to rescue the current Iranian Government. What am I saying? The Jews themselves are Democrats…could they be hating themselves?

  7. Another mental person wants put, You have to knee yourself when you talk with Jew. All christian wold pray to another Jew

  8. A porn star would know all about things being up one's own ass. Too bad this one is too stupid to understand the gravity of religious zealots armed with nukes. Have fun filming the sequel to 'two girls and cup' and being the cup when these militants get done with Israel.

  9. The World is waking up to the Zionist Jewish supremacy and evil domination.

    ALL your primitive archaic religions will be abolished or our world will be destroyed.
    Islam, Judaism, and Christianity will fall. The Masses are waking up.
    And you will all crumble. remember this… the 99% have the power, not you brainwashed psychos. you constitute less than 1% of the Human population afflicted with primitive and archaic beliefs. You are DOOMED to fail. Just like other fools throughout history who tried to dominate the Earth. The Mass of Humanity through the power of the Internet WILL overcome your primitive and archaic ideas. And the World will be united under LOVE and acceptance. Not your primitive Hate.

  10. Rosslyn Rose says:

    How naive you are. If there is no religion, man will find another way to war one another. I take a leaf from a well known film where it says "religion is not flawed, but man is flawed". The Jewish/Christian religion prays for peace, it is a few flawed men who give religion a bad name. While man strives for power, there will never be peace, love and acceptance

  11. Rosslyn Rose says:

    Someone who glorifies sex and nudity in the way she does cannot be taken seriously. Her rants are idiotic nonsense that she has heard from others

  12. Rosslyn Rose says:

    There is the nasty smell that is Iranian brainwashing here, it's either that, or they have been threatened with unbearable things. It is a well known fact that back in the late 70s, the Iranian declared war on Israel (little satan) and the USA (great satan), they are also told to lie to non-muslims as long as it benefits Islam. There is NOTHING that comes from Iran that is supposed to benefit anyone else that I would believe in. Rouhani is just a puppet, everyone knows that it is the Ayatollah and Mullahs that run the Country

  13. Yechiel Baum says:

    tHEY HERD THE JEWS LIKE THE Nazi's DID!

  14. Join together for prayers as it is going beyond our control. We cannot do anything ourselves without God's help. God give these poor people humility heart to endure all the bad things they are subjected to. I pray!

  15. Rosslyn Rose is right, Chicas. Look at Colombia in the 80s. Pablo Escobar was not a religious man, but he was willing to kill thousands of Colombians to control the coke trade in your country. Getting rid of the billions of Christians, Jews, and Muslims won't stop men from killing to gain control of resources, land, or power. And as people from around the world take on lifestyles that require more and more resources, you better believe that love and acceptance will take a backseat to the same old language of war and conquest. Religion is just the tool that the leaders use to amass support for their conquest. Just like how a hammer can be used to build a house, it can be used to destroy it.

    Why don't you focus your attention on the leaders who push for war. Israelis are just trying to survive, and they have that right. Even if you were correct in the assumption that 99% of the world is non-religious, the 99% would never have the right to eliminate the 1%. And once you have a force willing to hunt people down like that, don't be surprised if they find another 1% they don't agree with.
