No anti-Jewish disturbances have occurred in Persia since September last, Rabbi Joseph S. Kornfeld, United States Minister to Persia, declares in a letter to the Joit Distrhbution Committee here.
“All reports of anti-Jewish disturbances in Teheran are not accurate”, the Minister writes from the Persian capital. “None have occurred since last September. It has been reported to me that fasts had been proclaimed in Jerusalem in connection with pogroms in the Ukraine and Persia and that funds has been raised for the suffering in Persia. I have promptly denied these reports.”
