A recap of some of the week's top Iranian and Iran-related Tweets...
Execution of a student under the pretext of drug smuggling with 4 others shows the brutality of the religious dictatorship in #Iran— Maryam Rajavi (@Maryam_Rajavi) April 12, 2016
...says the Mojahedin Khalq (MEK) cult leader who sometimes orders her members to set themselves on fire.
Always better to under-predict and over-deliver.— Shervin K. Pishevar (@shervin) April 7, 2016
...says the Iranian-American Venture Capitalist hosting a Clinton fundraiser and on the hook for selling tickets as expensive as $353,400 to sit at the table with Clinton and George Clooney.
...claims Golnaz Esfandiari, the Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty correspondent, and peace loving-tree-hugger who fails to cite her source *tiss tiss*. We stand by our earlier report that this runner was merely trying to protect himself from a possible American drone strike.
...good gracious, it's been what, 10 years that Iran's been waiting for the Russians to deliver this bloody mooshak defense-system!? Wake me up when that thing is tested...and working properly. By then the S-300 will be obsolete and history will repeat itself with Iran pre-paying for the shiny, newer S-800 (w/ a delivery date TBD). And they say Purrrrsians are good businessmen *pfff*
Only armed forces both ‘ideological’ with spiritual motivation & ‘efficient’ & working in a ‘politically independent’ country is in #Iran.— Khamenei.ir (@khamenei_ir) April 10, 2016
...huh? Somebody fire his translator.
but why do famous people get things for free if they’re the ones that can afford it— LAY. (@_lillayz) September 22, 2012
...I can hear your whiny, nasal voice. Ugh.
Baba: "az mamanet bepors." Maman: "az babat bepors." ... and that is how I do things I'm actually not allowed to do— PersianProblems (@Persiantips) April 8, 2016
...yup, we sadly know this all too well.
...oh just come out and say it already. Iran is vastly superior to Saudi Arabia. Better looking, better educated, a richer history, more progressive...well, unless you're counting execution totals.
...whoa, that ratio is almost as good as the number of defenseless Palestinians who die for every Israeli soldier; but way to go boys, that's what we call a slaughter!
