This one reads like an April Fool's joke, but it's no laughing matter. Sad, but not surprising. Here's the link to the story put out by
Der Sturmer the Iranian news agency on behalf of Iran's Jews -- emphasis added for the fast readers among us:
The Association of Iranian Jews…renewed its commitment in a message issued on the threshold of the Jewish religious festival of the Passover, which starts Monday night.
"In obedience to the instructions of Jesus, in the new Iranian year, which has been declared year of national unity and Islamic solidarity, Iranian Jews voice their readiness to defend all national interests of Iranians and to observe the guidelines set by Supreme Leader (Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei) for the sake of strengthening national unity and solidarity in the fight against present-day pharaohs," the message said.
Courtesy of Instapundit. Yes, the "instructions of Jesus," probably the world's most famous Jew and surely the one least frequently cited as an authority by them.
As Michael Rubin at The Corner says (link added), "Two possibilities emerge: Either revolutionary appartchiks who know nothing of Judaism or Christianity are penning pro-Islamic Republic solidarity messages in other peoples' names—in which case ignorance is astounding as no one caught the mistake—or Iranian Jews living in the Islamic Republic (there are still around 20,000) are signaling that something is very wrong."
Jews are good at that, actually.
