Is Iran "Jew Friendly?"

Despite being ruled by Ahmadinejad (and Mullah friends) it seems that the Persian people have a deep respect and friendship with the Jewish state.

Amil Imani, an Iranian born American writes an excellent article describing why there is a strong bond between Persians and Jews.

(Arutz Sheva) The bond of friendship goes back to the landmark action of King Cyrus the Great of Persia. In 537 BCE, having conquered Babylon, the benevolent King Cyrus freed the Jews from captivity and empowered them to return to the Promised Land and build their Temple. [...]

True Iranians have remained friends of the Jews in both belief as well as deeds. During the shameful Hitlerian campaign of exterminating the Jews, for instance, Iranian missions in Europe, notably the one in France, issued Iranian passports to facilitate the flight of French and other European Jews from the claws of the Nazis and their gas chambers - the very gas chambers that the true Muslim Ahmadinejad, disgracing Iranians, denies ever existed.

This is something that I also have experienced when talking to Iranians about their relationship with Jews. Ironically Cyrus is referred to as "the LORD's anointed" in the Hebrew testament, and it was not until the Mullah's took over that Iran became a threat to Israel.

In case of war happening between the two, I wonder if Israel would help liberate Iran the way Cyrus liberated them?
