Afghanistan’s one and only Jew
Zablon Simintov says despite pressure from the Taliban to convert, he'll keep practising his faith in Kabul.
Afghanistan’s last Jew explains why he stays there. He has faced a lot of pressure & threats to convert to Islam but has refused. Afghanistan used to have a Jewish community but they’ve all left.
Zablon Simintov is the only living Jew in Afghanistan. That country is a deathbed for any Jewish diaspora. Kudos to BBC for brining this news because now everyone should make an effort to get him resettled in a safer country.
