Iran’s conspiracy theories continue to mount, as Vice President Hassan Mousavi on Monday blamed the drought in the southern part of the country on a “soft war” perpetrated by the West, Fars reported.

“The world arrogance and colonist (the West) are influencing Iran’s climate conditions using technology… The drought is an acute issue and soft war is completely evident… This level of drought is not normal,” Mousavi said.

The Islamic Republic’s first vice president, Mohammad Reza Rahimi, recently claimed at an international anti-drug conference in Tehran that the “spread of narcotics in the world emanates from the teachings of the Talmud.”

One of those is the attitude towards G-d and amount of fairness and justice in a nation. There is no materialistic or scientific Zionist/Western precipitation plot against Persia.

    The meteorologists in Iran and certain government members should do some more study…
