Missing the point?

by Raoul1955 on

This cartoon is based entirely on a claim that we are supporting Israel, the ONLY pluralistic democracy in the ME, with billions in aid:
I am glad we are supporting the ONLY pluralistic democracy there;
Now the main points:
1) Iranians created and continue to support Hezbollah;
2) Iranians support Hamas financially and otherwise.
This cartoon should ask why Iranians are spending money on these terrorist groups when they have many poor folks there?


Please stick to issues

by Cost-of-Progress on

that directly concern the Iranian people. Arab-Israeli issue does not matter regardless of how much regime supporters beat their chests about it - It-Does-Not-Matter! at least not now.

When we are talking about high double digit inflation in iran, giving aid (aid as in buying alliances and thugs to come beat our people) is anti nationalistic at best. But no one can ever accuse these cockroaches of caring for Iran and her people.






This does not make any

This does not make any sense. It's a non-sequitur.

 Since when Iran has become Palestine??

The most stupid and illogical comparison...

To Iraj and the guy in red:

by Mardom Mazloom on

"but why the US government spends billions of dollars every year to support Israel".


Because, US is a superpower which can afford to do it, and Mullahs aren't even a shepesh compared to US for trying to win the race against them. Iranians (the guy in Green) want democracy, freedom, liberty, instead of spending millions of dollars for foreign people who helped Saddam killing them in Iran-Irak war. Comprendes?

Iraj, if you're short in money Keyhan will even pay for your stuff.


thanks Ari - we should make it the

Why does the regime have such poor

cartoonists and satirists.  This isn't in the slightest bit clever.

hamsade ghadimi

well done iraj

by hamsade ghadimi on

the logic in this cartoon is fallacious.  for the green character, you can replace the word palestine with israel, and replace the word iranian with american and it would still be a plausible statement.  the red character did not use the same logic that the green character made.  perhaps, the americans, in general, don't care about palestinians.  but they also don't care about israelis.  the u.s. government gives aid to both israelis and palestinians but that is to serve u.s. (and the american public's) interests.  the red character's logic is all over the place and points out the illogical and bullyish tactic of the typical iri supporter. 

the cartoon also shows the pre-occupation of the iri with comparing itself to u.s.  the most pressing issues in the u.s. are economy and health care.  the most pressing issues in iran are the economy and human rights (freedom of many forms).  the red character doesn't hear that part very well.  well done iraj. now we know what's wrong with the iri mentality.

well done.  This character is the mirror image of


Economy is for donkeys, a Khomeinist perspective

by AMIR1973 on

Baradar Iraj, you are my favorite "gharbzadeh", IRI-propagandizing cartoonist. The annual GDP of the U.S. is between 37 and 43 times greater than that of the Democratic People's Islamic Republic of Iran (aka Islamist paradise), in other words Iran's GDP is between 2.3 and 2.7% of that of the U.S. (i.e. comparable to small American states or some American cities). The  billions given by the U.S. to Israel, Egypt etc is chump change for the U.S. However, the money given by IRI (a Third World country) to the fanatical bombers of Hezbollah, Hamas, and Islamic Jihad is not exactly chump change by the pathetically low standards of the IRI. But as Emam-e Aziz proclaimed, "Eghtesad mal e khar ast".

Way to go MM!

Honest rebuttals. You cite sources, so we can follow up and verify what you're saying.


just US aid - pls know ur $#s

Direct Budget Assistance to the Palestinian Authority

The United States is the leading provider of bilateral economic and development aid to the Palestinians, …………..In 2008, the U.S. was the single largest national donor to the Palestinian Authority. The U.S. exceeded its Paris Donors’ Conference pledge of $555 million (December 2007), committing more than $600 million in assistance to the PA in calendar year 2008, including:………….


MM, Keyword Pledge

by bomannyali on

Pledge means promise, doesn't always translate into action.  you should know.


w/o UN/US $7.7 billion aid, Palestine collapses, but soooooooo

by MM on

International aid to Palestinians: World, including US, spent 7.7 billion dollars in 2008-10 in Palestine.

 "In December 2007, during the Paris Donor Conference, which followed the Annapolis Conference, the international community pledged over $7.7 billion for 2008–2010 in support of the Palestinian Reform and Development Program (PRDP).[42]"

1. get your facts straight

2. But, goooooooood for them.  This is  Let's see how we can improve things in Iran.


Who cares what US households think.

Iraj khan, cheap shot. Focus on Iran since this is is two blocks down :)

Azadeh Azad

What a childish reasoning!

by Azadeh Azad on

Just because the US government spends billions of dollars every year to support Israel, it does not mean that the Iranian government should spend billions of dollars every year to support Palestinians.

Let wealthy Arab nationss support Palestinians. Iranians are not Palestinians, nor Arabs.

And what have Israelites done to Iranians to be rationally considered our enemies? The irrational actions of the US government cannot be an incentive for the equally irrational actions of the Islamic Dictatorship of Iran.
