Ahmadinejad’s “Islamic Republic News Agency” Applauds UK Anti-Zionist Jews for Supporting Journalists’ Boycott

The anti-Semitic regime of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has already welcomed a fringe group of ultra-orthodox Jewish nutcases, Neturei Karta, to its Holocaust denial conference in Teheran last December.

Now it is cozying up to their equally disturbed left-wing secular counterparts. A small band of highly vociferous Jewish leftist extremists, who have been gaggling in excitement at the increasing demonization of Israel in Britain and beyond, have come to the attention of the Teheran regime.
The Iranian state news agency reports that: “British Jews welcome journalists joining Israeli boycott“.*
The Teheran regime is referring to a letter published in the British newspaper, The Guardian, by a group calling themselves “JBIG” (Jews for boycotting Israeli Goods). All the signatories – Deborah Fink, Naomi Wimborne-Idrissi, Mike Cushman, Sylvia Finzi, Tony Greenstein, Ruth Tenne, Deborah Maccoby, Prof Moshe Machover, Mike Marqusee – are already well-known for their incessant campaigns against Israel and those who sympathize with her.
Deborah Fink, for example, has described Israel as a “satanic state”.
“The same official Iranian state news agency uncritically publishes the words of wisdom of its beloved President on the subject of the Holocaust,” points out David Zarnett, of a moderate left-wing British Jewish group called “Engage” who are campaigning against the extremist anti-Zionism of the British left.
