Iran on Tuesday marked the UN's International Day against Drug Abuse by predictably blaming the Jews alone for the "prevalence of narcotics and drug addiction throughout the world," reported Iran's Fars news agency.
Speaking at a ceremony in Tehran, Iranian Vice President Mohammed Reza Rahimi explained that the Talmud "teaches [the Jews] how to destroy non-Jews so as to protect an embryo in the womb of a Jewish mother."
Rahimi said the Jews' preferred method for achieving this goal is encouraging drug use among non-Jews. As evidence for his position, Rahimi made the laughable and easily disproved claim that "you cannot find a single addict among the Zionists."
Of course, there are plenty of drug abusers in Israel, just as there are in any country.
Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Rahimi's outburst was further evidence of a growing anti-Semitic tide that the world must not ignore.
"Hitler also said crazy things and succeeded in carrying out his plan," said Lieberman. "The Iranian regime is not composed of crazy people, but of anti-Semitic fanatics,who have a detailed worldwide plan, part of which, as they admit openly, is the destruction of the State of Israel."
