Iranian Antisemitism: The Islamic Republic's Ongoing Defamation of Israel and the Jews
January 24, Noon, Eastern Time (US and Canada)
Iran presents an existential threat to the survival of Israel and to Jews around the world. Since the inception of the Islamic Republic following the revolution of 1979, Iran has reduced its remaining Jewish population to second-class citizens, demonized international Jewry through information warfare, attacked Jews around the world, denied the Holocaust, and threatened to wipe Israel from the map. It is currently building nuclear weapons to destroy cities in Israel and elsewhere around the world. Mark focused his talk on Iran's defamation efforts and cited some of the more notorious cartoon contests and Holocaust conferences that brought the opprobrium of the Western world.
