Frightened Iranian Jews express support for Gaza Arabs

The Jewish representative in the Iranian parliament expressed his solidarity with the people of Gaza.

Siamak Mareh-Sedq condemned the "Jewish aggression" and said that he represented all of the 20,000 Iranian Jews in his opinion, claiming that they expressed interest in helping the wounded of Gaza.

Oh, by the way, the Jewish representative to Iranian parliament is required, by law, to support the political positions of the Iranian leadership.

Jews of Iran who disagree are not likely to express their opinions very loudly. But Roger Cohen might disagree.
