The Last Remaining Jew in Afghanistan Defies the Entire Taliban

Next time you feel that it’s you against the world, remember this brave man who is literally the last remaining Jew in one of the world’s most dangerous countries…and Islamic country at that.

For decades, Zebulon Simentov refused to leave Afghanistan — surviving a Soviet invasion, deadly civil war, brutal rule by the Taliban and the US-led occupation of his homeland.

He has resisted massive pressure to convert to Islam over the years, and steadfastly remains fully devoted to Judaism as an observant Jew in the most unlikely of places.

He was planning on immigrating to Israel a few months ago as you can see in this video…the second video shows his new stance of defiance, staying in Afghanistan to help with the humanitarian catastrophe that is currently spreading in the country.
