Iran: the Jews are responsible for global drug trade
You don’t need to dig very deeply at all to find entire websites dedicated to Muslim conspiracy theories (eg HERE: enjoy).
But this is a new one.
To His Grace, at any rate.
Vice President Mohammad-Reza Rahimi of Iran delivered a speech (at a conference sponsored by the UN) in which he said the Talmud not only teaches to ‘destroy everyone who opposes the Jews’, but that the sacred text is responsible for the spread of illegal drugs around the world.
His evidence (as he views it) is that no Zionists are addicted to drugs. He announced: “The Islamic Republic of Iran will pay for anybody who can research and find one single Zionist who is an addict. They do not exist. This is the proof of their involvement in drugs trade.”
So, that’s that then.
And so persuaded is he of his research methodology that he has offered payment to anyone who can find a Jewish drug addict: “The Islamic Republic of Iran will pay for anybody who can research and find one single Zionist who is an addict. They do not exist. This is the proof of their involvement in drugs trade.”
He also said the Talmud teaches Jews to think that they are a superior race. “They think God has created the world so that all other nations can serve them,” he said. Halfway through his speech, Mr. Rahimi said there was a difference between Jews who “honestly follow the prophet Moses” and the Zionists, who are “the main elements of the international drugs trade.”
It is worth remembering that there are more than 25,000 Jews living in Iran. To the Vice President, they are doubtless all evil Zionists. To him, the terms are synonymous, mutually inclusive, coterminous.
One wonders how they feel, as an ethno-religious minority, besieged by such oppression.
His Grace just thought he would flag this story up, because the BBC (along with most of the MSM) didn’t bother to do so. If this had been some obscure Jewish shepherd in Israel blaming the Palestinians for sneezing, it would have been broadcast far and wide and filled more than a few column inches in the press. But the Vice President of Iran blaming the Jews for the world’s deadly drugs problem falls under the radar of what passes as the ‘mainstream’ media. Such flagrant anti-Semitism and blatant Jew-hatred just isn’t worth reporting.
And where it is reported, the big story is spectacularly missed - or purposely sidelined. The focus tends to shift from the Islamist political theology of Mohammad-Reza Rahimi to diplomatic imperatives and realpolitik. As one diplomat reasons: “If we do not support the United Nations on helping Iran fight drugs, voices like the one of Mr Rahimi will be the only ones out there.”
So, we must permit and promote (indeed, subsidise) such views in order to assist Iran’s battle against its own drugs problem. And by so doing, their drugs are deemed to be of greater significance than Israel’s existence: Iranian rehab is of a higher priority than the life of a Jew.
By not challenging the odious views of people like Mohammad-Reza Rahimi, the West affirms the genocidal regime of President Ahmadinejad and legitimises the fanatical theology of Ayatollah Khamenei. The appeasement is manifest in the toothless ‘condemnation’ which emanates from the foreign offices and embassies of the world, for whom a little Jew-hatred is a price worth paying to get the Muslim Brotherhood on-side.
The anonymous European diplomat present at the conference tells us that his ‘gut reaction’ was to ask ‘Why are we supporting any cooperation with these people?’
