Iran blames Jews for international drug trade

Vice President Mohammad Reza Rahimi (Photo: Flickr/ Parmida76)

So, the Vice President of Iran says that Jews are responsible for the international drug trade. He delivered his speech at a UN Conference on Drugs – no, the CONFERENCE wasn’t ON drugs…it was ABOUT drugs. Easy mistake given the topic.

In a New York Times article that, unlike virtually everything else in the Grey Lady, isn’t to be missed, Mohammed Reza Rahimi unleashes a torrent of Jew-hatred that, if it wasn’t so incredibly funny, would be deeply insulting. Sadly, I wasn’t able to track down a transcript, so the Times report is the best we have. Highlights include:

“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.”

[Rahimi] told stories of gynecologists’ killing black babies on the orders of the Zionists and claimed that the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917 was started by Jews, adding that mysteriously no Jews died in that uprising.

The Talmud teaches to “destroy everyone who opposes the Jews.” It further teaches Jews to think they are a superior race. “They think God has created the world so that all other nations can serve them.”

Rahimi is a clown and he deserves to be laughed at rather than taken seriously, but there are two serious points to be made.

First, is that it is clowns like this who suddenly become very serious when in control of significant power…like, say, a nuclear weapon. This guy shouldn’t be anywhere near a nuke, let alone be in command-and-control possession of one (or more).

Second, and most upsetting, is the final line of the Times report, wherein a Western diplomat defended his attendance at the conference by saying, ““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.” Newsflash to Ambassador Useful Idiot – Mr. Rahimi is the Vice President of the country.  And the President of the country is even worse. These guys aren’t just whackadoodle tenured professors at Tehran University — they are actually in positions of power.

The bigger questions are: Why is the UN sponsoring ANYTHING in Iran other than nuclear facility inspections by the International Atomic Energy Agency? Why are Western diplomats traveling to Iran – a country under multiple UN Security Council sanctions resolutions whose leaders have a history of medieval-style Jew-hatred? Let those be the only anti-drug voices in Iran! It’s better than liberal democracies allowing themselves to be used as props. At what point do the world’s democracies come to understand that not everybody is interested in the same positive-sum solutions that our culture strives for?

    To the Jews: REMEMBER where your ancestors have had fallen and learned from them. Thier self reliance trust in themselves rather than fully TRUSTING JEHOVAH. Learn and keep them in your heart and mind and be your guidance in battle of life, big or small.
    To Christians the REMEMBER Genesi 12:3= Genesis 18:19= Genesis 22:18
    because through this nation we recieve blessings after blessing John 1:14= Acts3:23
    SHALOM JERUSALEM!
    may your brothers recognise who your are.

    If something happend to the Iranian, they always blame either the American or the Jews. And even Mahmoud Ahmedinagah admits on nation T.V. that the Holocaust never exsisted.

    Isreal is has become a nation, it was not on their own strength,or power but by the will of God our heavenly Father, the Lord God of Isreal, please don’t be surprise that they will face persecution by their enemies, nation will rise against them because of who they are. But do not be afraid when the enemy comesin like a flood God’s Spirit will raise a standard against them. Isreal’s enemies will acuse them of anything. but remember the word of God.

    Really, we can’t simply ignore the dangerous lies
    that promote hatred and attacks on Israel and Jewish people. The Iranian leaders are lunatics, and the world needs to know it, and stand for Israel.

    Why is everyone so amazed at the attitude of Middle Eastern nations? The slow burn has come. The slow burn. The nations are lining up against the Children of Israel. Don’t you read your Bible? The time of Jacob’s Sorrow fast approaches. God will destroy them all. But there must be tears first. The whole house of Israel will be saved. Yes, I am Christian.

    America needs to extricate itself from association with the United Nations – an organization that initially started out with good intentions and common objectives which has transformed into a monster of growing proportion with agendas that deviate from those that were originally proposed. In some cases, the U.N.supports causes that run counter to American ojectives and ideals. We need to stop feeding this monster – stop all financial and military contributions and this monster will starve!

      I agree with you Ernest. We do need to back away from the United Nations and take it to another country. Stop spending our hard earned money on it and let other nations foot the bill.

      …and look what he was allowed to accomplish before stopped…with todays tech we don’t get the luxury of ignoring a situation until we’re ready to deal with it…if they keep this up God will have no choice but to get directly involved and muddle their inventive brains that he created or neutralize their weapons or turn them back upon them…hopfully he will be merciful…perhaps the current country name is just Gods sense of humor…history tells us that being backed by a strong godless military country does not compare to being backed by God himself…The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. Psalm 14:1

    Someone should ask the Iranian leadership what kind of Crack they are smoking. Israel should really ask the Iranians if they would like MRI’s to be done on their leaders just to check for brain function.

      I agree with Katie. Let us work for peace and tranquality and disregard all those arose anger to us since we know that we are also against drug abuse throughout the world. Those who are doing it are doing enormous harm to all the soceities including in Israel. They are the enemies of mankind and civilization. Rabbi please do something to stop it.
