Iran-Israel Relations Back To More Than 2,500 Years

Relations between the Iranian and Jewish nations date back to more than 2,500 years, before the founding of Israel as a country, when Cyrus the Great conquered the Babylonian Empire (modern Mesopotamia) and freed the captive Jews in Babylon to return to their homeland, “Israel”. In the Jewish Torah, Cyrus is referred to as the “God’s Savior”, which had a very positive effect on modern relations between Iran and Israel, especially in the first 30 years. The reason for the complexity and specificity of the relations between the two countries is that Iran is considered a Muslim country; But on the other hand, Iran is not only an Arab country, but throughout history, it has always been threatened by the Arabs for its territorial integrity, which seeks to separate parts of Iran, including the islands of Greater and Lesser Tunb, and Abu Musa, the southern part of Iran, including Khuzestan province, is supported by the United Kingdom and governs the Persian Gulf.
