"The Zionist regime's crimes are reminiscent of the actions taken by the German Nazis during the First and Second World Wars,” Siamak Marreh Sedq said.He also compared the Zionist regime's atrocities against the Palestinians to Saddam Hussein's predations upon Shia Muslims in Iraq and Iran.Sedq, a 50-year-old physician, fills the parliamentary seat reserved for Jews, as a religious minority, going back over a century. He replaced long-time Jewish MP Maurice Motamed in 2008. In a 2010 interview with Russia Today, he said: "Jews are safe in Iran. That’s true. Nobody needs guards. There has never been a single instance of anti-Semitism in Iranian society. This phenomenon belongs to the European, Christian world. There is no anti-Semitic sentiment in Iran. We have no attacks on synagogues or cemeteries as happens in Paris."On Tuesday, an MP said an Iranian parliamentary delegation is poised to leave for Gaza Strip to sympathize with the Palestinians facing Israeli atrocities.
