There was a whole kerfuffle over the long Jewish weekend for Rosh Hashona concerning who in Iran did or did not wish Jews a happy new year.
And in doing so Iran’s foreign minister, Javad Zarif, (after a quick bit of chit chat with the daughter of former US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi) managed to also claim that Iran has never officially denied the Holocaust and that the only Holocaust Denier in Iran was Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and he’s gone now.
He then (allegedly, because I can’t find it on Facebook) made this statement:
“We condemn the massacre of Jews by the Nazis, and we condemn the massacre of Palestinians by the Zionists”
I’ve ripped that piece of crafty Holocaust Denial apart in a Times of Israel piece which, by the by, criticises the Times of Israel and other media outlets for crazily thinking that constitutes a refutation of Holocaust Denial. It doesn’t.
And in case there was any doubt the Iranian regime officially hates Jews we have this utter gem of an article on Iran’s State controlled propaganda outfit, Press TV (h/t Arsen Ostrovsky):
Britain’s Prince Charles has raised eyebrows, attending the induction ceremony of UK’s new chief Rabbi while wearing a Jewish skullcap.
Aside from snatching the title of the first British royal to attend the inaugural of a chief rabbi, the heir to the British throne put on display his most explicit ever show of allegiance with the jews, wearing a yarmulke adorned with the Prince of Wales’s official emblem of feathers.
The new chief rabbi Ephraim Mervis took over the top position on Sunday.
This is not the first time the royal skullcap has made appearances as Charles has worn it at various other Jewish related events and ceremonies.
The British royal family has close ties with the Zionist regime of Israel and the Israeli-supported Jewish groups in Britain.
In one such of show of those ties before Charles’s recent stunt, the regime’s president Shimon Peres sent Charles’s son William and his wife a blue outfit for their newborn son back in July, with the message “From Israel with love” printed on the shirt.
British royals have also a tradition of having their baby boys circumcised by a Mohel, which is the Jewish word for a circumcision practitioner. Charles himself was one of those babies.
This is while, there are also huge speculations about vast covert links between British royals and the Israeli regime, which include reports of joint financial and political interests and go as far as drawing a Jewish lineage for the royals.
The speculations are rarely based on concrete evidence as the royals keep their true relations to Jews secret, but as popular historian Simon Sebag Montefiore says, “historically the British royal family has had a very friendly relationship with the Jewish community”.

(I know, I know, many, many Iranians are not like this and despise their own government right up until the point where it kills them)
