Iranian VP: Zionists, Talmud behind the international illicit drug trade
According to senior Iranian official, the fact that no Zionist drug addicts exist is proof of Zionist 'involvement in drugs trade.'
Iranian Vice President Mohammad Reza Rahimi delivered a highly anti-Semitic speech at an event marking International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking in Tehran on Tuesday.
Rahimi declared that drug abuse around the world is rooted in the teachings of the Talmud, the semi-official Iranian news agency FARS reported.
“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.”
He went on to blame “Zionists and Jews” for involvement in other alleged conspiracies, including the Russian Revolution and ordering the killing of black babies.
Rahimi continued to say that the Talmud teaches Jews "how to destroy non-Jews so as to protect an embryo in the womb of a Jewish mother."
"The Anti-Defamation League called on UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon "to speak out and to make clear that these views are not only objectionable, but repugnant to the entire international community."
"Here is yet another example of the fact that anti-Semitism is a pillar of the Mullahocracy in Tehran," charged Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, adding, "on a day when nations are supposed to set aside their differences to combat illegal drugs, the Iranian regime continues to malign the Jewish people and its religious traditions — all part of their ongoing campaign of demonizing the Jewish people and dehumanizing supporters of the Jewish state."
