Foreword: On Iran, Israel, and Antisemitism

Iran's fanatical and radical Islamic leadership has chosen to act as an international platform to attract and foment both Holocaust Denial and anti-Israel propaganda, alongside with its escalated pitch of overt threats to implement Israel's physical destruction. This verbally abusive and menacing rhetoric springs from long-standing government policies favouring publicistic Antisemitism; scratch the surface and Iran's anti-Israel polemics can be easily identified as products of classic antisemitic propaganda, despite their camouflage as "Review" and anti-Zionist positions, respectively.
