Jews have a longer history of establishment in Persia than history of Jews in Germany or entire European continent. They made it through many revolutions, instability, wars, invasions, changes in power, kings and dominating religions. Even Islamist throne in 70s did not end their existence there.

If you have a proper Jewish upbringing how can you equate the two. I am sure in Iran aside from probably being preached that he is part of an unwanted religion he did not get any real reason why to remain a Jew. BTW he probably was marked solely because he was Jewish and now is a martyr Likkiddush Hashem may the Jewish people know no more suffering

Are you serious? you are comparing that to staying single? wow..you mean better he marry a gentile woman than stay single? I wonder where you are coming from and what Torah you are studying! I could guarantee you that the Torah prefer he stay single rather than intermarry....
Besides...you think he had no chances of finding a nice jewish woman, given the amount of money they had....travel around the globe and find someone to suit him...well I guess it doesn't matter.

I have a friend in the Persian community here in Los Angeles who's uncle lives in Tehran although he is Jewish and orthodox he has many connections in the Iranian regime. For reasons I won't go into he cannot leave, his family lives in Los Angeles and he comes occasionally to visit. He told my friend about a year ago that his powerful friends have been telling him "it's time you tell your people to leave while they have the chance".

really? wasn't a young child butchered and cut to pieces here not that long ago? wasn't Leiby's murder a much WORSE crime than one on an adult, with at least financial and other motives for doing it?

Years ago, the non-jews of Iran would not even look at a jew, and would beat them openly in public. But now its not so "bad" for the jews in Iran. They actually live fairly comfortably. The antisemitism is not as open, and the younger generation is forgetting their history and intermingling with the goyim. Sadly, it takes something like this to remind All of us that we are Hashem's children and not put on this earth to be like the goyim or dating them. Hashem should help his family deal with such tragedy.

Even if they can't or don't want to leave, there is a middle point somewhere between leaving the country and dating a daughter of a Revolutionary Guard man. Many Jews got trapped in Germany, yimach shmam, not many of them, however assimilated, dated the daughters of SS or Gestapo men.

Just picture for yourself, a commander in the Revolutionary Guards having a Jewish son-in-law. There cold absolutely be nothing worse than that. That is the reality. But tell it to Ahmadinejad's friends, the Neturei Karta.
