The Rise of Anti-Semitism after the Iranian Revolution of 1979
Persecution of the Jews during the Iranian Revolution of 1979 led to so many Iranians
joining the Moslem exodus and fleeing the country. Since then there has been a sustained rise of
the Anti-Semitism after the monarchy was toppled. The circumstances surrounding the
revolution, the factors that led to the revolution, and the effects such as the rising of the AntiSemitism clearly point out to certain weakness in the Iranian policy on how to treat people of
different religious background. This paper will build on the experience of the Jews in after the
Iranian revolution and examines the possibility of Islam fascism in the present Iranian State. The
paper will conduct a systematic review of literature conducted on the Iranian revolution of 1979
to examine Iran’s Policy towards Jewish Iranians and the State of Israel. The paper argues that
the rise of Anti-Semitism after the Iranian Revolution of 1979 was due to the fact that western
policymakers repeated history to avoid paying attention which would hinder their adoption of
policies that conform to their prejudices.
