According to various reports in the media, three Iranian Jews were arrested due to their close proximity to one of the anti-regime protests.  

Although one of them was subsequently released, two more remain in custody, with efforts to release them continuing. An Iranian general provided an ‘official’ figure of 300 protesters who have been killed  following the death in custody of 22 year-old Mahsa Amini. Her arrest was for an improperly-worn hijab.

According to The Yeshiva World,Several weeks ago, the Jewish kehilla made an effort to avoid being associated with the protests by publishing a public letter of support for the regime in which it condemned the protests and called for a direct dialogue with the government.”

This news was published on the same day that Iran published a series of sites that it intends to strike in case of a war starting with Israel, a statement that was made after Iran’s Fars News Agency was struck in a cyber-attack that some blame on Israel.

A report recently published by MEMRI around the same period of time claimed that Iranian human rights activist Farideh Moradkhani, the niece of Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, stated: “Now, in this historically sensitive time, all of humanity sees that people in Iran are fighting the Satanic forces of evil with their bare hands, relying on nothing but their lives with remarkable bravery and courage.”

She added: “As an Iranian woman, I am asking all the people of the world to help these lions and lionesses. Oh free people, be on our side and help us, so that the governments stop supporting this murderous, child-killing regime.”

Moradkhani does not believe that applying sanctions is enough to stop the mullahs in Tehran: “On the one hand, ridiculous and laughable sanctions [are imposed] just to go through the motions, and on the other hand, multi-billion dollar deals are made behind the scenes. These emphasize the loneliness of the freedom-seeking Iranians in this breathtaking battle.”

“The bullets that kill children in Azerbaijan, Balochistan, Khozestan, and throughout Iran are not Iranian-made. Until when will we have to witness the oppression by political tyrants everywhere in the world?” she asked. “Isn’t the experience of Hitler, Mussolini, Ceaușescu, Qadhafi, Saddam Hussein, Khomeini, and, most recently, Khamenei, enough to make the world contemplate a new path?”

 Moradkhani predicted, “The free and brave Iranians will topple this oppressive and tyrannical regime on their own. What is needed is to refrain from supporting the regime that in November 2019, murdered thousands of Iranians in four days, while the world was watching from the sidelines. This, and similar catastrophes, constitute a mark of shame on the forehead of humanity.”

She concluded, “The time has come that, as a symbolic act [of solidarity], all the freedom-seeking countries recall their representatives from Iran, and expel from their countries all the representatives and attachés of this blood-thirsty regime. This will be a show of solidarity with the freedom-loving Iranian public.”
