The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2020


Masih Alinejad


Iranian-born Masih Alinejad has established herself as one of the most prominent critics of the Islamist regime in Tehran in her work as a journalist for Voice of America’s Persian-language service. Politically active against the ayatollahs from a young age, Alinejad later left Iran, graduating from Oxford Brookes University in England. From her base in the US, Alinejad’s exposure of the Iranian regime’s human rights abuses have earned her plaudits from leaders including US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. To punish her bravery in confronting the regime, Alinejad’s brother was arrested by security forces in Tehran last year, and remains in custody. (Photo: Wikimedia / Creative Commons License)
