Golestaninejad: Iranian Jews "grateful to the Messenger of Islam"--yeah, right.

Articles like this one appear periodically in the Iranian press. Does Iran have any semblance of a system for educating Rabbis? Who gave Rabbi Golestaninejad semicha?
In a meeting with members of the IRI parliament's national security and foreign policy committee, Rabbi Mashallah Golestaninejad said, "I have repeatedly declared that we are against pro-Zionism rabbis and the books containing their decrees should be burnt."

Receiving members of the committee in the Society of Iranian Jews, Rabbi Golestaninejad said "I am an Iranian before being a Jew," adding that "We are grateful to the Messenger of Islam, for he has thought us love of humanity."

Rabbi Golestaninejad also added that Judaism had nothing to do with Zionism and said in their opinion Zionists were against humanity. He condemned Zionist regime's atrocities in Gaza.

"It says in the Ten Commandments that "Thou shalt not kill," and if a rabbi orders the killing of the gentile his book of religious decrees should be burnt," Rabbi Golestaninejad added.

He also pointed to nine Iranian Jews who have lost their lives defending Iran against the Iraqi invasion of Iran.
