Iran Threatens Boycott of All Electronic Companies

Following consideration of a Samsung boycott, Iran now mulling boycotting all high-tech companies who have ever dealt with Israel

Yesterday news broke that Iran was mulling a boycott of Samsung after the electronic giant’s tablet was featured in a humorous television commercial for HOT Telecommunication, an Israeli cable provider.

Following the news, Iranian law makers started looking into boycotting all electronic products which have an Israeli connection, which would “make all these companies regret ever working with the Zionist regime,” said Iran’s Minister of Commerce.

Law makers started researching those who they consider implicit. Intel, one of Israel’s biggest supporters, opened its development centre in Haifa in 1974 which currently employees over 4000 Israelis. Law makers decided that they could do without PCs and Macs. “Since we censor Facebook and the internet anyway, our citizens will not miss their computers. We are starting a new marketing campaign to promote the romantic side of pen and paper,” said an Iranian law maker.

Another tech giant, Microsoft, has an R&D center in Haifa, Israel and therefore will be included in the boycott. “No one likes Microsoft anyway. And regardless, without computers our citizens won’t need the Windows operating system.”

The world’s largest company, Apple, was next on their sights. Having recently opened an R&D center in Israel and having acquired Israel’s Anobit Technologies for $390 million, Apple was par for the game. “Our citizens were disappointed with the Apple 4S anyway, expecting a much better phone, something like Samsung’s Galaxy S2,” said the Iranian law maker. When reminded that the Samsung boycott will remove the Galaxy S2 as well, he replied “Oh, what about Nokia. Do they make good phones? Windows operating system, really? Good Allah, this won’t be good.”

Google, the search engine giant, was an easy boycott. Iranian officials were tired of their citizen’s easy access of the truth through the search engine, so removing Google based on their affiliation with Israel is an easier sell then removing them because of fear of information. “Google is owned by Jews, has a centre in Israel, and their motto ‘Don’t be evil’ doesn’t sit well with us,” said another law maker. “Regardless, we still have Bing. Bing is owned by Microsoft? Seriously? This really won’t be good.”

“Listen, this won’t be easy, but hating things for no good reason never is,” the law maker stated. “With all the radiation our people are exposed to from our nuclear facilities, the last thing they need is more radiation from mobile phone and computers. So really, we are doing them a favor here. And anyway, cancer is a disease create by the Zionist pig. Prove me wrong. Oh right, you can’t without Google.”

The above story is fiction. Well, except for the part that the Galaxy S2 is a better phone. It really is.
