In light of contemporary Iranian Shi'ite fundamentalist Muslim fanaticism and recent Holocaust revisionism, it is significant to show Iran's altruistic past in their role in enabling the rescue of Jews in Europe and Iran during the Holocaust. The issue of Iranian assisted rescue during WWII is one of several motifs in current Iranian efforts to minimize the Holocaust and advance Holocaust revisionism as a tool of Shi'te agitation against Israel, Zionism, and Jews in general. Current Iranian regime sponsored Holocaust revisionism not only is anti-Israel oriented, but contains features of anti-Semitism and classic Shi'ite Muslim disdain for Judaism and the Jews.
