It's been a long time since I last did a roundup of Iranian news (definition of GoozNews is here,) but today we were treated to a surplus of wonderfully stupid articles from the Iranian media.

First we have the story, published in YNet, that Iran's IRNA "news" agency is reporting that thousands of Israelis are fleeing Israel in fear of the Iranian missile exercises last week. This story went wholly unnoticed in Israel, so it must be Jewish jinn or other similar invisible people.

Meanwhile, Nefesh b'Nefesh reports that four planeloads of people have arrived in Israel in the past month from the UK and US to live.

Next up is that the FARS "news" agency reported that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has accused four nations of conspiring to kidnap him the last time he was in Iraq.

The nations? America, Afghanistan, Iraq - and Palestine! It seems that Iran's love of Palestinian Arabs only extends to Hamas.

Finally, we have FARS again "refuting" the doctored images from the Iranian missile launch, saying that Iran never published the doctored images. The "expert" who made this analysis is funny enough, spinning a wild conspiracy theory about how the West first tried to ignore the test and then made up the story about the Photoshopped image.
