Protest and Politics: Anti-Semitic Rally in Iran Targets Jewish Community

Islamists “commemorated” Purim in Iran with a protest at the tomb of Esther and Mordechai

In the city of Hamadan, Iran, a mass protest occurred on the evening of March 24. The rally, which coincided with the Jewish holiday of Purim, saw participants blaming Jews for the “Holocaust” of the Persian people. Individuals waved Hezbollah and Palestine Liberation Organization flags while chanting anti-Israeli and anti-Semitic slogans. Videos of the event were widely shared on social media.

The tomb of Esther and Mordechai in Hamadan has been a significant pilgrimage site for Jews in Iran for centuries. While there is some debate about who is buried in the tomb, some believe it may be Shoshandukht, the Jewish wife of Sasanian king Yazdegerd I. Another burial site for Esther and Mordechai is believed to be in Kfar Baram, Israel, near the Lebanon border.
