Hamadan Protest Coincides with Jewish Holiday, Tensions High over Tombs of Esther and Mordechai

Islamists “commemorated” Purim in Iran with a protest at the tomb of Esther and Mordechai

In the evening of March 24th, a significant protest took place in Hamadan, Iran. The rally coincided with the Jewish holiday of Purim and was attended by many individuals who blamed Jews for the “Holocaust” of the Persian people. During the event, participants waved Hezbollah and Palestine Liberation Organization flags and chanted anti-Israeli and anti-Semitic slogans. Videos from the event were widely shared on social media.

The tomb of Esther and Mordechai in Hamadan has been a pilgrimage site for Jews in Iran for centuries. While there is uncertainty about the exact identity of those buried in the tomb, some believe it may be Shoshandukht, the Jewish wife of Sasanian king Yazdegerd I. Another burial site for Esther and Mordechai is believed to be in Kfar Baram, Israel, near the Lebanon border.
