The teachings of the Talmud are the driving force behind the international drugs trade – so said Iran’s First Vice President Mohammad Reza Rahimi on Wednesday, according to AFP.
Rahimi’s remarks came at an international anti-drug conference in Tehran, attended by many foreign diplomats, and AFP says it was “a rare diatribe by an Iranian official targeting the Jewish faith, rather than the state of Israel.”
“The spread of narcotics in the world emanates from the teachings of the Talmud… whose objective is the destruction of the world,” Rahimi said.
“The Talmud teaches that it is lawful to acquire wealth through legal and illegal means… which gives (the Jews) the right to destroy humanity,” he said.
And then he added: “If one seeks what lies behind all forms of corruption, there is the repugnant face of Zionists. This is the same case for the narcotics trade … whose primary operator is the Zionist regime.”
There you go, the Zionists are spreading their Talmudic drugs around the world and nobody’s doing anything.
What’s he going to say when the Sium of the Daf Yomi comes around soon? It’ll be like Woodstock for Zionists.
What are all the Haredim going to do when they realize the Iranians been calling them Zionists?
Israel’s foreign minister criticized the United Nations and European Union for sending representatives to the Iranian conference.
By the way, Rahimi claims to hold a Ph.D. from Oxford University. But Oxford University doesn’t seem to recall any of it. Maybe he’s holding someone else’s Ph.D.
