THERAN (Fars News Agency)- The spokesman of the anti-Zionist Jewish movement of Neturei Karta stressed that the goal pursued by the delegation’s visit to Iran is to show to the world that the West’s propaganda against Iran aimed at convincing the world that the Islamic Republic is anti-Jewish and anti-Semitic is just a lie.
Referring to a wrong quotation published in the Tehran-based daily ‘Sharq’ on Sunday, Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss said, “we have just come to visit Iran in order to show to the world public opinion that the West’s propaganda so implying that Iran is anti-Jewish and anti-Semitic is all a lie and that Jews are living along their Iranian brothers peacefully.”
He also stated that the second goal pursued by the trip is reconfirmation of the very fact that Judaism is totally different from Zionism and that the two are completely in opposition.
Rabbi Weiss rejected Sharq’s article that the visit has been arranged in order for their participation in a Tehran conference on the Holocaust and reiterated, “we have mentioned every where that the above goals constitute our motivation for visiting the Islamic Republic. We have never stated such a thing and all the media present there can testify to that, actually we have never even heard of such a conference.”
Weiss and the other members of the delegation had stated in a press conference at Fars News Agency on Saturday that the goal of their visit is to show to the world that the west’s propaganda against Iran is but a lie and that Zionism and Judaism are different issues.
