Some things are so pathetic that only writers and journalists at the Jerusalem Post believe them. Why?
As Daniel J. Flynn puts it quite adequately in:
“When ideology is your guide, you’re bound to get lost. Ideology deludes, inspires dishonesty, and breeds fanaticism. Facts, experience, and logic are much better at leading you to the truth.
Truth, however, is not everyone’s intended destination…Ph.D.s, high IQs, and intellectual honors are not antidotes to thickheadedness.”
What is the ideology when it comes to Iran?
Well, Iran is the biggest supporter of terrorism in the Middle East; Iran vows to acquire nuclear weapons; Iran vows to annihilate Israel; Iran is a threat to the United States and indeed the West, etc., etc.
Writers at the Jerusalem Post have been perpetuating these nonsensical ideas since the beginning of time. So when Seth J. Frantzman has recently declared that Iran is diabolically spreading the coronavirus to the Middle East, then this shouldn’t be a surprise at all.
