Hi Michael, Remembering when we came to Munich, and me and Shava visited the Dachau concentration camp. When I tell about our impressions to people here in Sweden, very quickly the discussion switches to Iran and the mullahs regime and their atrocities against Israel (or as they call it, the “Zionist entity”). People here are somewhat convinced, that there is a historic hostility between persian and jewish people. But this is all not true, of course. Over 2500 years, in fact untill the demise of the late Shah Reza Pahlevi, Jews were a very accepted and well integrated majority in the persian society. I found this very elusive article by Abbas Milani, where he shows that already in ancient times Persia was always supportive of the Jews. Have a look at this article.
Take good care
