Jews in Iran not free to worship

Dr Morrison writes "that Iran is home to the largest number of Jews in any state in the Middle East outside Israel". (Letters, September 9).

They are allowed to practise their Judaism as long as they submit to Sharia law, show no links with Zionism and Israel, and do as they are told.
