In about a month, the Islamic Republic will experience a presidential election for the thirteenth time in its life. The government of the Islamic Republic is concerned about it because according to the events of January 2018, November 2019, and January 2020, which led to the bloodshed of thousands of Iranian protesters, today the majority of society believes in boycotting the elections. In the coming days, Iranians will once again become a “wise nation always ready to act” and ostensibly decide the fate of the country for the next 4 years. This issue has significant manifestations that will follow from the living conditions of the people to the major national issues and the international image of the country.
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.
After the tragic event of February 1979, Iran fell into the hands of the Left and Islamic Alliance, and this led to the loss of much of the progress that had been made about half a century earlier and during the Pahlavi era. The revolt was sparked when a revolution called the White Revolution or the King and Nation Revolution, recognizing rights such as the right to vote, the right to run for parliament and even the ministry, the right to divorce for women and the implicit prohibition of polygamy for men. The religious leadership, led by the mullahs, considered these laws contrary to the “religion of Islam” and the “eternal, sacred and unchangeable laws of Allah”. The leftists in Iran at the time, who received orders from the Soviet Union, also seized the opportunity to strike at the body of the Iranian political system. The fight against the current anti-women laws in the Islamic Republic in Iran arose and they paid heavy penalties by their lives.
