Tehran broke ground on a new $3.2 million Jewish cultural and sports center, an Iranian news agency reported. The report in Press TV said Iranian Housing and Urban Development Minister Mohammad Saidi-Kia and Morris Motamed, the Jewish community's representative in Parliament, broke ground Tuesday on the 11,000-square-foot complex. "The followers of divine religions live under a single flag in Iran and enjoy the freedom the constitution has granted them," Saidi-Kia reportedly said. The center is expected to open in two-and-a-half years. The report pointed out that Iran's Jewish population is "the second largest in the Middle East after Israel."
