‘Israel sent us dead insects,’ says Iran
The Times of Israel ^ | 12/28/2013 | TIMES OF ISRAEL STAFF

Posted on 12/28/2013 4:21:42 PM PST by Former Fetus

Tehran accused Israel of sending a “virus-laced letter” containing dead bugs to the Iranian mission at the UN headquarters in New York.

According to an outlandish and unconfirmed report in the semi-official Fars news agency Saturday, Iranian diplomats at the mission received a “letter sealed with an Israeli stamp,” and which contained “a number of dead insects.”

The report alleged that the enclosed note read: “Those who are enemies of Israel will be targeted by virus attacks.”

US officials were called to the supposedly infested scene and “dispatched a team of anti-virus experts” to transfer “the virus-laced letter under special care to prevent any possible infection.”

No Iranian diplomat was hurt in the alleged bug-related incident, according to Fars.

Question: do they really think the Mossad is that incompetent or do they think that the US is so gullible? I think I know the answer!

With an article such as this, one could ask the same question of the posted news source........

As they approach success in their nuke program Israel can send them a mushroom (cloud) or two.

Why waste a dead fish on worthless Iranian's?

Now if Israel wanted to "send a message" they should send Ahmenidijad's head to them .......

Actually that scene from 'The Godfather' was an effective tool of terror because the gangster loved the thorough bred and both his security and that of the horse had been breached to prove that the Corleones could reach him anywhere and anytime they wanted.

So since pigs are unclean and not revered, a radioactive piece of the K'aaba, their holy object of veneration would be a Mo' better 'gift'.

The news of a mushroom cloud over Mecca would sure warm the cockles of my heart. ;>)

> Iranian diplomats at the mission received a “letter sealed with an Israeli stamp,”

And a message saying “Absolutely not from the fine chaps at the Palestinian Make-Israel-Look-Bad headquarters, who by the way are totally rad”

This propaganda isn't directed at the Israelis, nor at us.

This is for their own poor fedayeen. Time, apparently, to gin up some hate.

Why are U.S. officials wasting tax payer’s money on this Iranian camel manure? It’s time to blow up the U.N. building. The U.N. is a worthless organization.

The Iranians lucked out — if those insects had been alive, it’s a sure bet they’d have been Mossad agents and would have taken out everyone. /s

Thanks Former Fetus.

There was a fruit basket. Was. The bugs died of indigestion. (I’m probably having way too much fun with this... :P)

Send me dead flower by the mail
Send me dead flowers to my wedding
And I won’t forget to put roses on your grave

Just a thought here... Someone needs to ‘fix’ this so that the fishwrap says NY Times, or WaPo, or one of those similar stalwarts of truth suitable for wrapping fish...

53% of U. S. voters will believe this.

47% of U. S. voters won’t.

The rest of the populace will be busy eating whatever they can dig out of their nose.

Whites will use it as an excuse not to have children for another five years.

Hispanics will use it as an excuse to have six more children over the next five years.

Blacks will abort at least two more kids over the next five years.

I say this in jest folks, so please don’t get too worked up over it.

...a “letter sealed with an Israeli stamp,” and which contained “a number of dead insects.” The report alleged that the enclosed note read: “Those who are enemies of Israel will be targeted by virus attacks.”

Elsewhere in the news, another homosexual was found to have fabricated a story about being the target of hate crimes; and another Black, who claimed that right-wing groups were intimidating him by hanging a noose in his tree, was found to have a roll of the exact same rope (one end freshly cut) in his garage...
