ٰViruses are not living organisms. They lack metabolism.
From the day that the inefficiency of the Islamic Republic’s regime in dealing with the COVID-19 in Iran became apparent, from the day that people accused the officials and asked them why they did not quarantine Qom in the early stages, why not only the flights to/from China were not canceled but increased, why they sacrificed the lives of Iranian people for their sham election which people had boycotted, why they were secretive, why they lied again, why instead of accountability and transparency, they made an environment of horror and… – From that same day Ali Rabiei, Spokesman of Rouhani’s government, who graduated from Fallahian and Reyshahri School in Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS), started a campaign in front of press cameras and on social media called, “I have Corona too”.
As expected, the campaign was well received worldwide. Now, after a few days, we can unveil the plan in his “MOIS imagination”.
The ones who announced it, didn’t have it.
The ones who had it, died in silence.
Iraj Harirchi, Deputy Health Minister, played his role very well. He was standing besides Rabiei on the press conference coughing and sweating. The next day he recorded a video message of himself while had smug on his face saying: “I have Corona too.”
Mahmoud Sadeghi, a parliament representative, entered the game immediately and tweeted about his positive test result on Feb 25. A few hours later, tweeted: We’ll defeat this virus…. A video was uploaded to his twitter page saying he’s fine, just a few hours later. All on the same day, Feb 25.
On the other hand, the virus has invaded Grand Ayatollah Musa Shobeiri Zanjani’s office, killing his office manager.
His family were quarantined, but the news was denied by officials.
Masoumeh Ebtekar also entered the game. They used a photo of her from 5 years ago when she was in an accident, and distributed it on social media.
Mohammad Ali Ramezani Dastak, who was “elected” in the sham parliament election on Feb 21, died of the virus but because he wasn’t part of the game, the officials denied his infection and mentioned flu as the cause of his death.
Hamed Jalali, who was a member of Islamic Republic’s Cyber Army on social media, died of the disease but there wasn’t even a word of it on the media. He called a member of parliament who warned about the danger of Coronavirus, a traitor to the country.
Mostafa Pourmohammadi, a former MOIS Minister and always a high ranking official in Islamic Republic since its inception, has a positive result and is quarantined but not a peep on the IR media.
This is where Faridaddin Haddad Adel, son of Gholam Ali Haddad Adel, joins the campaign of “I have Corona too” and posts about his positive test result and being quarantined at his house with happiness (The emoji is hard to miss).
Very soon Mahmoud Sadeghi announces his fast recovery. Thanking his wife for taking care of him, saying, “I didn’t have any special treatment. I stayed home for the past 2-3 days.”
ٰViruses are not living organisms. They lack metabolism. They live like parasites. A life that structurally is strikingly similar to the people ruling Iran. The only thing that can prove these parasites have contracted Coronavirus is their death.
