Zionists And Americans Corrupt Iranian Youth; Lure Them Into Water Fights

The latest threat facing Iran’s theocratic paradise? Water fights and squirt guns. As a story in the WSJ says,

After heeding a call on Facebook, a group of nearly 800 young men and women were among those who showed up at the park…They chased strangers around a giant water fountain, screaming and laughing as they splashed each other with water from toy guns, bottles and plastic bags.

Sounds like fun, right? “We had a blast,” said one participant. But the authorities thought otherwise:

Police raided the park, engaging in a four-hour cat-and-mouse game with the youth, who turned their squirt guns on the cops and threw plastic bags full of water on the policemen’s heads, according to participants and media reports. Finally, park authorities cut off the water, rounded up dozens of young men and women, and dragged them to jail. Tehran’s police chief vowed to crack down and warned that similar water-war events were planned in other cities.

“These events are a disgrace to our revolution. Our security forces and judiciary must stop the spreading of these morally corrupt actions,” said conservative lawmaker Hossein Ibrahimi.

Best of all?

Fars News Agency, affiliated with Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, blamed Zionists and Americans for corrupting the minds of the youth and coaxing them into water parks.

Bad Jews! Bad Jews!

    Not surprising. Millions of Muslims believe in a worldwide Jewish conspiracy to destroy Islam. And quite a few of them think that Jews are encouraging Muslim youth to engage in illicit sex as a means to undermine Islamic morality.

    So what, in America where the cops can freely go through your garbage because you threw it away and now it’s public property, they are arresting taxpayers for video taping cops out in public doing the jobs the taxpayer is paying them to do.

    We all know that America is threatening peaceful nations like Iran that have not attacked other nations for hundreds of years, unlike barbaric America that thrives on wars and massacres. You are fooling nobody with your propaganda Sir. We know who and what you are, we know you very well. Greetings from Turkey, your “ally” and slave (unfortunately).
