Poor Unfortunates

He said, “The Partnership Front and Mousavi and Menashe Amir and several sites affiliated with the Monafeghin and the Baha’is, have jointly committed tens of profanities against Kayhan.”

I said, “That this is not new news! During the past few years, and especially after the sedition of 1388 [2009], Kayhan has always and every day faced their insults and obscenities.”

He said, “Their insults are exactly―not more and not less than―the same insults that the monarchists, Baha’is, Monafeghin, Radio Israel and Radio Farda―affiliated with the CIA―are [fulminating] against Kayhan.”

I said, “What greater and better honour for Kayhan than to be attacked by Menashe Amir, the Baha’is and the Monafeghin.”

He said, “Poor unfortunates, by parroting the obscenities of the Baha’is and the Monafeghin against Kayhan, [they] confirm Kayhan’s view regarding their dependence on Israel and the Baha’is.”

I said, “It is like Kayhan’s telling them, ‘Wow, what a stupid person we are faced with!’ And they answer, ‘What a stupid person you have come face to face with?!’”
