JTA, Shame on you

To the editors of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency:

I wish to convey my utter disgust in regards to your decision to publish Edwin Black’s “Despite Holocaust denial, Iran seen to have worked with Nazis”, and ask whether you yourselves believe the statements made therein.

To begin with, Iran is not “a nation named after Hitler’s master race.” Iran has been “Iran” for thousands of years, long before Hitler and the idea of “the master race” were born. To realize the falsehood of Black’s statement all you intelligent editors had to do was to consult with a historian of your choice.

Regarding the person of Reza Shah Pahlavi, were you not troubled at all by the absence of a single reference or source in Black’s article?

Exactly how would a person with an iota of intelligence infer from Reza Shah’s decision to retain German technical assistance in Iran’s development projects that he was “a stalwart admirer of Hitler, Nazism and the concept of the Aryan master race”?

Khomeinists and Islamists call Reza Shah Pahlavi “a Jew”; you call him a Nazi. Shame on you. I say from the bottom of my heart, really, truly, shame on you.

You owe your readers an apology for publishing falsehood. You owe your Iranian readers an even greater apology.
