I have never ever heard an explanation of why the Iranians hate the Jews so much. I know some Iranians and they are completely obsessed with hate for the Jews and they can’t even explain why. Does anyone know?

Is there any culture in that part of the world that isn’t taught to hate someone?

'Why'? Well, here's a short version of events...

  1. Jews have lived on Persia for 2,700 years.
  2. Under a Persian King in 6th Century BC, Persian Jews were allowed to return to Jerusalem and re-build the Temple of Solomon.
  3. Aprox 1,200 years later Muhammad came along and 'invents' Islam.
  4. In 651 AD Muslims conquered the Persian Empire.
  5. Persian Muslims start hating the 'infidel Jews'.

So that's the basics.
Snippets from numerous Wiki links on Persia, Jews, and Islam.

>>>”I have never ever heard an explanation of why the Iranians hate the Jews so much. I know some Iranians and they are completely obsessed with hate for the Jews and they can’t even explain why. Does anyone know?”<<<

As a rule, mainstream Iranians even in Iran, do Not hate the Jews. Jews have been part of Iran for centuries, long before the Arab-Moslem invasion of Iran in th 7th century AD. Many Iranian Jews only speak Persian, not Hebrew or Yiddish.

Apart from the hatred of Jews in Europe by many Europeans & for centuries, the ‘hatred of Jews’ in Iran can be fairly & squarely attributed to Islamic teachings in Iran, often emulating Mohammad’s own paranoia & hatred of the Jews. Even so, Moslems & Jews share much in common. Much more than Christians & Moslems.

Even pre-Islam, in Iran, during the rule of Seleucid (Greek Dynasty), an offshoot of Alexander’s adventures, which came into existence immediately after Alexander’s rule in Iran, only those Seleucid rulers of Iran badly treated the Jews in Iran.
