Iranian Jewish MP slams ‘mosque destruction’

More from the Iranian regime’s favourite Jewish mouthpiece, the country’s only Jewish MP: Siamak Moreh Sedgh has blasted what he termed “the destruction of
mosques in the Muslim world,” in a possible reference to the ongoing unrest in Jerusalem over the imagined threat to the al-Aksa Mosque. But could Moreh Sedgh be referring to the crane tragedy which killed hundreds of Iranian pilgrims at Mecca? Report in the Jerusalem Post:

 Siamak Moreh Sedgh: mouthpiece

According to Iran’s
Mehr News Agency, Siamak Moreh Sedgh, a former community leader who
holds a parliamentary seat reserved for a representative of the
country’s Jews, stated that mosques are the “best element for unity in
the Muslim world, but have fallen into the hands of terrorist groups
and are being destroyed.”

“I personally respect followers of all
religions and wish them success,” he continued. “Many holy places of
the Muslim, Christian and Jewish people have come under attack, and
this matter has provoked the anger of all believers.

Unfortunately, today we are also witnessing the destruction of mosques in the Muslim world.”

“All
of us have the responsibility to protect religious holy sites,” MNA
cited Sedgh as saying, adding that he had asserted that members of
other faiths must respect Muslim values.
