Jews 'martyred' for the Islamic Republic of Iran

Iran's lone Jewish MP has made another declaration of loyalty to the regime:

TEHRAN (IRIB) -- The representative of the Jewish community in the Islamic Consultative Assembly (Majlis), Maurice Motamed, on Saturday noted that Iranian Jews along with other religious minority groups in the country participated in rallies and demonstrations leading to the victory of the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran.

The country's Jews also bravely went to the warfronts during the 1980-88 Iraqi -imposed war and contributed several martyrs to the Islamic Republic system, Motamed added.

He further said that Iranian Jews have embraced the values of the Islamic Revolution and aspirations of the founder of the Islamic Republic, the late Imam Khomeini, and consider it their privilege to serve the country.

Referring to the false propaganda of certain countries, the MP stressed that religious minorities live peacefully and freely in the Islamic Republic of Iran.
