An Iranian cleric, Grand Ayatollah Naser Makarem Shirazi, who is 93 years old, has decreed that it’s okay to use a vaccine against novel coronavirus made by Zionists if ‘there’s no substitute’. As late as Wednesday, however, the ayatollah had said, “It is not permissible to buy and sell from Zionists and Israel”. The Mideast Beast caught up with the ayatollah to hear more about his seemingly contradictory views on the topic.
“The most important thing is protecting life and health,” the ayatollah told The Mideast Beast. “That is why Iran is not the top executioner in the world, but only second after China. But I digress. It is true that it is not permissible to buy from Zionists and Israel, but sometimes they make really good stuff. Don’t tell anybody, but personally I love Israel’s Bamba, but only my second and youngest wife, who is 13 years old knows about this. She discovered my secret stash in the basement”.
The Mideast Beast asked Shirazi whether it wasn’t contradictory to allow for ‘Zionist’ vaccines given the Iranian regime’s calls for Israel’s destruction and description of the country as a ‘cancerous tumor’
“Nothing contradictory about it at all”, said the ayatollah, “This year we take the Israeli coronavirus vaccine, next year we take Jerusalem!”
