Jewish Woman Murdered in Iran

Muslim extremists murdered a Jewish woman in Isfahan, Iran in order to take over her family home.

According to a report on Israel Radio, the woman's family said that a mosque is under construction near the family's home and its worshippers demanded that the family vacate their house in order to expand the building.

The report claims that the woman, who owned the house, filed a complaint about the demands. Shortly afterwards, thugs came to her house and murdered her.

The event has caused much consternation and fear in the remnants of a Jewish community that still  remains in Iran. Ahmadinejad has claimed that Jews in Iran enjoy peaceful lives.
