In 1951, after the assassination of prime minister Ali Razmara, Dr. Mohammad Mosaddegh was elected prime minister by a parliamentary vote which was then ratified by the Shah. As prime minister, Mosaddegh became enormously popular in Iran after he nationalized Iran's petroleum industry and oil reserves. In response, the British government, headed by Winston Churchill, embargoed Iranian oil and successfully enlisted the United States to join in a plot to depose the democratically elected government of Mosaddegh. In 1953 US President Dwight D. Eisenhower authorized Operation Ajax. The operation was successful, and Mosaddegh was arrested on 19 August 1953. The coup was the first time the US had openly overthrown an elected, civilian government.
After Operation Ajax, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi's rule became increasingly autocratic. With American support, the Shah was able to rapidly modernize Iranian infrastructure, but he simultaneously crushed all forms of political opposition with his intelligence agency, SAVAK. Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini became an active critic of the Shah's White Revolution and publicly denounced the government.
1977 - This is where the Iranian hostage crisis comes in. While never very well explained by the Zionist controlled lame stream media, the students were essentially protesting the institution of the puppet regime of Shah Mohammad Rezaq Pahlavi by the United States government. The Shah's brutality and oppression (under the watchful eye of the U.S.) was destroying their country.
In December 1979, the country approved a theocratic constitution, whereby Khomeini became Supreme Leader of the country. The speed and success of the revolution surprised many throughout the world, as it had not been precipitated by a military defeat, a financial crisis, or a peasant rebellion.
Iraqi President Sadam Hussein being funded, trained and prodded by the U.S. Government and U.S. Military attacked Iran.

Interesting to note all the alleged restrictions but nothing of any substance that I can see. The bottom line seems to be if this is a nation that hates the Jews, why are they allowed to stay and flourish in Iran?

Hmmm... this article sure does seem to be contradicted all recent accounts. It also bears note how the author takes liberties introducing alleged hardships the author claims were suffered by the Jews of Iran. It seems that even when there is a logical explanation for something, the Jewish culture insists on inserting their persecution viewpoint into the story.

Iran's proud but discreet Jews (HTTP://NEWS.BBC.CO.UK) (2012/0820)
A typical BBC propaganda piece. They start out saying that Iran and Israel are bitter enemies, a fact which both sides would disagree. Both sides would claim the OTHER side is the one with all the hate. They use the 'wipe off the map' rhetoric which has been proven to be a false quote. They equate anti-Zionism as anti-Semitic. What they cannot explain is why the Jews won't leave and why if Iranians hate them are they allowed to stay?
