Mahmoud Ahmadinejad thinks Europe is stealing Iran’s rain

Alleged friend of magicians Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says he knows why Iran has suffered through several droughts.

“Western countries have designed plans to cause drought in certain areas of the world, including Iran,” Mr Ahmadinejad said in the city of Arak in Markazi province.

“According to reports on climate, whose accuracy has been verified, European countries are using special equipment to force clouds to dump” their water on their continent, he said.

By doing so, “they prevent rain clouds from reaching regional countries, including Iran,” Mr Ahmadinejad charged.

Allies of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad got arrested for using magic

Several people said to be close to [Iran’s] president [Mahmoud Ahmadinejad] and his chief of staff, Esfandiar Rahim Mashaei, have been arrested in recent days and charged with being “magicians” and invoking djinns (spirits).
Ayandeh, an Iranian news website, described one of the arrested men, Abbas Ghaffari, as “a man with special skills in metaphysics and connections with the unknown worlds”.

Makes me proud to live in a country without anti-djinn laws.
