Just because rabbi lazar says something in an interview does not mean he truly believes what he is saying.
A lot of the things he says are just because he has to say them.
I don’t believe he actually thinks that the Jews in Iran have it well there.

He didn't say they have it well

He said they have the freedom of worship. That they do. They’re free to learn torah, to keep mitzvos, to daven, etc. They’re not free in many other important ways.

he is an antisemite

Unfortunately, becoming a shliach does not automatically bestow all-encompassing wisdom upon someone. Shluchim should vet media outlets befor giving interviews, and refrain from discussing politics because it is not their area of expertise.

How should he know who they are?

And I wouldn’t trust an organization that calls itself “Right Wing Watch” to tell me whether someone really is an antisemite. Though Wiles does indeed seem like the genuine article.
