So i am talking to this one amazing blogger who is blogging from Iran and this is what i find out. It was an April fool’s joke. He told me that the Irani newspapers ran the story as an April fool’s joke. They actually run a story like that every year. Not only did the ministry of communications deny these ridiculous statements, but the person who was “quoted” to have said this actually had never given this statement.
But the Western newspapers ran with the story anyways saying how many Irani Newspapers are saying this without actual research. What’s more? the Sabzis (or green movement people) went with it too and used it to show how terrible the regime is. It shows how out of touch the Sabzis are with Iran and Irani society that they did not even know it was a joke even though Irani newspapers have been running such articles every April 1st for a while now.
In other news that was not a joke, the son of Reza Shah Pahlavi actually has been quoted to have asked Israel to attack Iran. I guess treachery runs in the blood.
