My Mideast Punchlines: under the weather….

An Iranian general has accused Israel of manipulating the weather to prevent rain over the country, claiming that it was facing cloud “theft”.

“The changing climate in Iran is suspect,” Brigadier-General Gholam Reza Jalili, head of Iran’s civil defence organisation, told a press conference.

“Israel and another country in the region have joint teams which work to ensure clouds entering Iranian skies are unable to release rain,” he said, adding, “on top of that, we are facing the issue of cloud and snow theft.”

biffWhat an apt first name the general has. Gholam sounds very much like Golem.  which in Jewish folklore is an animated anthropomorphic being that is magically created entirely from inanimate matter.  It can be victim or villain, Jew or non-Jew, man or woman—or sometimes both. Over the centuries it has been used to connote war, community, isolation, hope and despair.” Well, folks, that just about sums up the desperation felt by Iran and the aforementioned Gholam. You know your head’s in the clouds when you have to add cloud-stealing to the already-burgeoning list of calumnies perpetrated by the Zionists against freedom-loving Iran. It’s no wonder General Jalili is feeling under the weather.
