How do Israelis, especially Iranians in Israel see Iran?
Tehran Bureau / Tara Mahtafar
To give some background on Iranian Israelis -- an estimated community of 150,000-200,000 -- the first wave of Persian Jewish migration to Israel happened in 1948 after the establishment of the state of Israel, primarily from provincial cities of Iran. These included Isfahan, Shiraz, and Mashhad. The year before and after the 1979 Revolution, there was a second migration wave of Jewish Iranians, especially from Tehran. Many became very successful in Israel, especially in the arts and politics. >>>
