Genesis of Iran’s Latest Insane Conspiracy Theory

651

Earlier today, Reuters posted this video on the protests in Iran. As you can see, it ends with a visual of Israeli minister Yisrael Katz speaking to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, with the reporter stating “Katz explaining that Israel has decided not to get involved with Iran’s internal affairs.”

Presumably because this is the last visual of the video, this is how it appears on the Reuters site.



Apparently, this visual also made its way to the Reuters Twitter account, before being deleted – but not before Iran’s Fars News noticed and decided to promote the conspiracy theory that Reuters revealed Israel’s hand behind the protests in Iran, but were forced to pull the photo after pressure from Israel.

Auto-translation:

Admit to “Reuters” unwanted turbulence in Iran with the Zionist regime, ” IRNA news agency account/on your news photos that are related to the recent riots in Iran was to take a picture of Netanyahu and the Minister of information. This media pressure after Israel was forced to apologize.

Remember, the visual was only there to begin with because Reuters were reporting how Israel had decided not to get involved. Which is presumably why Reuters deleted the tweet.

As Prime Minister Netanyahu explained, the conspiracy theory is laughable. But there is nothing funny about the lengths to which the Iranian regime will go to blame the Jooooos.
