Great News: According to Iran, There are no Jewish Drug Addicts

In another blatantly misinformed, anti-Semitic speech, Iranian Vice President Mohammad Reza Rahimi blamed the “Zionists” and the “Talmud” for all of the world’s drug problems, stating that “Zionists” are using drugs to “annihilate non-Jewish communities,” according to Iran’s Fars News Agency.

Rahimi, who spoke during a ceremony in Tehran on Tuesday marking International Day against Drug Abuse, said the Jews’ control and involvement in the global drug trade is “why you cannot find a single addict among the Zionists.”

"The Islamic Republic of Iran will pay for anybody who can research and find one single Zionist who is an addict," Rahmini said. "They do not exist. This is the proof of their involvement in drugs trade."

Unfortunately for Iran (and please taste the sarcasm here), they have suffered great financial losses in their battle against drug abuse.

“We could receive money and allow drug cargos to pass through Iran as a transit route and end up in the western countries without leaking into the Iranian society, but our religious teachings do not allow us to do so because paving the ground for the transit of narcotics to the other countries is against ethical codes."

A European diplomat who attended the ceremony told the New York Times that the speech “was definitely one of the worst speeches I have heard in my life. My gut reaction was, ‘Why are we supporting any cooperation with these people?’”

The Iranian newspaper's sources said that even Iranian participants "privately wondered at their government's motive for allowing such a speech."

Misinformation is a great tool for Iran in their battle against their enemies. Sadly, when you repeat something enough times, people start to believe you, even when it’s so far beyond ridiculous you would need a compass to find reality.
