The association for friendship between Iranians and all jews (iran-israel.fr) was created in June 2019 in Paris.
Why did we create this association?
Jerusalem was invaded and destroyed in 597 BC by Nebuchadnezzar, Joakim the King of Judah was killed, and his son is deported to Babylon along with other notable and Jewish scholars.¬†
Jews become slaves in Babylon.
In 538 BC, Cyrus the great, became the new head of the Babylonian empire.
Then king Cyrus published an edict of liberation for the Jewish people and help them reconstruct Israel :
Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, to fulfill the word of Yahweh pronounced by Jeremiah, Yahweh awakened the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, who proclaimed and even displayed throughout his kingdom.
Thus says Cyrus, king of Persia: "Yahweh, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth; he has charged me to build him a temple in Jerusalem, in Judah.
Whoever among you is part of all his people, let his God be with him! Let him go up to Jerusalem, to Judah, and build the temple of Yahweh, the God of Israel, the God who is in Jerusalem.
That to all the survivors, everywhere, the people of the places where they reside bring a help in money, in gold, in equipment and in mounts, as well as offerings of devotion for the Temple of God which is in Jerusalem. "
Since that time a great friendship has been born between the people of Israel and the people of Iran.
The Iranians saved the Jews and allowed them to rebuild their country, and now the people of Israel and jews around the world want to help their Iranian friends to help them regain their freedom and rebuild their country. It is a fair return of things, between friends.
This is why we foresee these activities to come:
Concerts with Iranian and Israeli or Jewish singers and musicians.
Meetings with Iranian and Israeli or Jewish writers.
Common sports activities, like friendly football matches, basketball, all kinds of sports.
Academic and research exchanges, particularly to train Iranian students and scholars, and to teach Persian history, language and culture to Jewish and Israeli students.
In the field of agriculture, food and water, Israel will have to help the Iranian people to reorganize themselves in the interest of all Iranians, our friends. We encouraged exchanges in the field of cooking.
In the field of health, we want to help exchanges and training between our two countries, to better care for our two peoples.
In the political realm, we think that while respecting the religious and cultural histories of each country, we think that we can not build democracy with religious parties, both in Iran and in Israel, we must restrict the domain religions apart from politics, laws, justice and security. Laicity, secularism. We will have to help our countries evolve towards laic democracies. secularism.
In the field of security, we hope that in the future our countries can help each other against all possible threats, including wars, terrorism, natural disasters, etc.
In the economic field, we want to encourage economic exchanges in agriculture, food, energy, tourism, technology, health, etc.
In the field of energy: We want to improve collaborations around all energies: Oil, gas, solar, wind etc.
In the field of transport: we already plan the day or we will gladly make the first direct flight between Jerusalem and Tehran!¬†
We work in order to prepare the future opening of the Iran's embassy in Jerusalem and the future embassy of Israel in Teheran.¬†
This is our goal! We will get make it because history is on our side.
But we can not do everything at the level of our small association, but we will support, collaborate and communicate with all initiatives with the same objectives.
