Iran's Jews have given the country a loyalty pledge in the face of cash offers aimed at encouraging them to move to Israel, the arch-enemy of its Islamic rulers.
The incentives — ranging from £5,000 a person to £30,000 for families — were offered from a special fund established by wealthy expatriate Jews in an effort to prompt a mass migration to Israel from among Iran's 25,000-strong Jewish community. The offers were made with Israel's official blessing and were additional to the usual state packages it provides to Jews emigrating from the diaspora.
However, the Society of Iranian Jews dismissed them as "immature political enticements" and said their national identity was not for sale.
"The identity of Iranian Jews is not tradeable for any amount of money," the society said in a statement. "Iranian Jews are among the most ancient Iranians. Iran's Jews love their Iranian identity and their culture, so threats and this immature political enticement will not achieve their aim of wiping out the identity of Iranian Jews."
The Israeli newspaper Ma'ariv reported that the incentives had been doubled after earlier offers of £2,500 a head failed to attract any Iranian Jews to leave for Israel.
Iran's sole Jewish MP, Morris Motamed, said the offers were insulting and put the country's Jews under pressure to prove their loyalty.
"It suggests the Iranian Jew can be encouraged to emigrate by money," he said. "Iran's Jews have always been free to emigrate and three-quarters of them did so after the revolution but 70% of those went to America, not Israel."
If a picture says a thousand words, this picture of how Iranian Jews view Israel is priceless. Even though the Israeli's kept jacking up their "bribe" money to the Iranian Jews to move to Israel, none took the bait. Why?
Why won't Iranian Jews take the cash bonuses offered by Israeli Jews and move to the "Fatherland?" Maybe it's because the Iranian Jews love living in Iran and won't be tempted by 30 pieces of silver to sell out their adopted country.
One can hear the howling and shrieking going on in Israel after the offer was refused. The P.R. ploy backfired on the Israeli Zionists.
If the Iranian Jews had taken the bait, we would be hearing all sorts of stories in the American MSM about how Jews living in Iran had it so tough that they moved to Israel to escape..blah, blah, blah.
One might think that this would give the Israeli Zionists pause to think about their plans to launch an attack against Iran, since some of their brethren are living in Iran, but that type of moral dilemma won't faze the Zionists. They'll just have one of their rabid rabbis utter a few words for their long lost souls, then it will be OK to bomb the Iranian Jews into oblivion.
Other than the United States, if there's a more deranged and war hungry nation than Israel, i defy anyone to tell me the name of that country.
