Iranian Toleration


From ADN Kronos via Gateway Pundit:

Seven ancient synagogues in the Iranian capital, Tehran, have been destroyed by local authorities. 

The synagogues were in the Oudlajan suburb of Tehran, where many Iranian Jews used to live. 

“These buildings, which were part of our cultural, artistic and architectural heritage were burnt to the ground,” said Ahmad Mohit Tabatabaii, the director of the International Council of Museums’ (ICOM) office in Tehran. 

“With the excuse of renovating this ancient quarter, they are erasing a part of our history,” said Tabatabaii.
