The fiercely Islamic Republic of Iran, is perhaps the last place you would expect to find a large Jewish community. But despite political use of anti-semitic, anti-Israeli slogans, Iran's Jews appear remarkably free.

"Anti-semitism has never been the general policy of the Iranian government" explains Maurice Mottamed, the country's sole Jewish MP. There are of course "glaring differences" in treatment between the majority Muslim population and religious minorities. But remarkably most of the time Iranian Jews are "comfortably doing everything they want to do here. We can perform all our religious celebrations." This is an image very much at odds with fashionable Western opinion.

"Iran's problem with Israel is its government & policies, not its people"

November 12, 2012 - Despite the US and Israel openly subverting, encircling, unleashing terrorists and threatening war upon Iran - the nation, both its government and its people, hold a balanced view toward the people living under the governments threatening them. Because of the torrent of propaganda washing over global audiences, many might be surprised at the conditions under which Iran's Jewish community live (the largest population of Jews in the Middle East outside of Israel) - surprised that they have representation in the government, protections, and an ancient, thriving culture.

Journeyman Pictures takes us into this community and offers us an alternative view of not only Iran's position toward Judaism and the world, but insight into the insidious, manipulative deceit of Western governments, including their Middle East client regime within Israel itself.
