Iran Arrests Squirrels!

This is too funny:

Iranian intelligence operatives recently detained over a dozen squirrels found within the nation's borders, claiming the rodents were serving as spies for Western powers determined to undermine the Islamic Republic.

"In recent weeks, intelligence operatives have arrested 14 squirrels within Iran's borders," state-sponsored news agency IRNA reported. "The squirrels were carrying spy gear of foreign agencies, and were stopped before they could act, thanks to the alertness of our intelligence services."

Iranian police commander Esmaeil Ahmadi-Moqadam confirmed the report, saying that a number of squirrels had been caught bearing foreign spy gear within Iran's borders....

Dear brothers in Islam, especially farmers,
We must be on our guard against all subversive animals.

How many of you realise that the cow is sacred to the filthy Hindus? Do not be seduced by these creatures, no matter how attractive their big brown eyes, or voluptuous their thighs. For all you know your entire herd may be agents of the Hindu idolators.

A Muslim should be satisfied with goats, as Allah intended!

Do Muslims have a paranoia about rodents?

The squirrels have revealed under interrogation that they were persuaded to enter Iran by Mossad agents, who told them the country was full of nuts.

The Ayatollah is very funny.

I have a feeling his real name is Dag.

Imagine their response to a wild boar?

And they hate dogs, too. Let's see: Jews, Bush, dogs, squirrels, pigs, Buddhist statues, Queen of England, ... where does it stop?

This is serious.

These squirrels have been incarcerated for 3 days. The Red Cross has not even been allowed access to them.

Are these squirrels being kept in accordance to Geneva Conventions rules concerning the treatment of prisoners of war?

Have they been accorded prisoner of war status?

Are they being tortured for information?
