Iranian Government Stirs Up Anti-Semitism with Invented Massacre Meir Javedanfar
On Dec. 10, 250 Basij students from Abu Ali Sina University in the Iranian city of Hamedan threatened to tear down the mausoleum at the graves of the historical Jewish figures Esther and Mordechai, in revenge for what they claimed were Israeli threats to infringe on the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem. The graves of Jewish figures in Iran (which also include Daniel) have always been considered holy and respected by Jews and Muslims alike.
The narrative being promoted by the Iranian regime is that Mordechai was a murderer because - after the king's vizier, Haman, plotted to kill all the Jews of Persia - he ordered the massacre of more than 70,000 Iranians. This is being called an "Iranian holocaust." These days one can hear about the fabricated a nd highly anti-Jewish "Iranian holocaust" from Iranian politicians. The international community must condemn the Iranian government's anti-Semitic narratives and statements, and demand that they cease. (Guardian-UK)
Yes, let's make up bogus holocausts while denying the shoah.
