Why Israeli radio transmits in Farsi for listeners in Iran


As tension has been growing between the Jewish state and Iran over the latter’s alleged nuclear weapons program, an Farsi-language Israeli radio aims at bridging the gap between the two countries and hopes to help spread peace between the two peoples. It even takes calls from Iranian listeners.

“We, the people in Israel, are a peaceful nation and not an enemy, or the ‘little Satan’ as we are described by the Iranian regime,” the radio’s CEO said. “For 32 years, the regime has poisoned its people against Israel. We are here to tell the truth.”

Around 100,000 Jews of Iranian descent live in Israel today, while 25,000 Jews still live in the Islamic Republic.
