‘Suck Iranian ****’ — Netanyahu’s Farsi twitter account earns negative reviews

on 40 Comments

In an attempt to speak directly to the Iranian public to muster sentiment against the P5+1 talks between world leaders and Iran set to expire tonight, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has launched a Twitter account in Farsi. Yet the move to convince Iranians the potential deal is a bad one has backfired.

Farsi speakers responded in droves by cursing Netanyahu and the state of Israel!

“Suck Iranian ****”– expletive deleted by the Jerusalem Post– “death to Israel,” and “I hate Israel,” was just some of the backtalk Netanyahu’s received to his @IsraeliPM_Farsi handle.

Launched around three hours ago, Netanyahu’s Farsi account already has more than 700 followers. Thus far he has only posted two tweets. The Jerusalem Post translated one:

“With the continuation of the show of compromising with Iran, the path to Iran getting a nuclear bomb is paved, and they are being given billions of dollars for terrorism and invasion.”

Meantime, over Netanyahu’s English account the prime minister has released a flurry of content opposing the Iran deal during the past few weeks, and hours. His latest:

If concessions continue after calls for destruction of those conducting negotiations, it seems some are ready for an at any price.

In Israel’s view the agreement with Iran is not far-reaching enough, thus it will sanction the development of a strong nuclear program. Last month Netanyahu posted a video with the tagline: “The Islamic state of Iran, like ISIS just much bigger.”

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani, and Foreign Minister Javad Zarif also took to social media today tweeting in support of reaching a deal with world leaders.

    Netanyahu is politically obtuse, and a wouldn’t know diplomacy if it hit him square between his eyes.

    He barges in when uninvited, pushes to the front of the line, makes demands, makes threats, and looks a total arse. I guess they don’t value diplomatic protocol/etiquette at all in Israel…never mind manners and common sense.

    A boor of enormous proportions. Thanks, Allison.

      When your daddy is the US and you have the atom bomb, what the hell do you need any diplomacy for?

      REPLY: Yes, Netanyahu is incredibly ‘tone deaf’! ! !

      He’d be on his tuches in a second, if he behaved like that around here.
      Of course, The Zio-kids would label it an anti-semitic attack, instead of a well deserved ass whupping.

    • oldgeezer on July 15, 2015, 11:55 pm

      I’m not sure he’s obtuse. He is however a rabid racist and his delusions of superiority make him a total laughing stock the world. I bet he’s on the phone to acme corp right now ordering new drawings.

    • SeekerJBP on August 14, 2015, 11:03 pm

      He is Israel’s Trump. It just hit me… this is what we get if Trump gets elected.

  2. annie on July 13, 2015, 4:07 pm

    did he actually say suck iranian dick? just wanted to clarify that.

    • Rusty Pipes on July 13, 2015, 4:49 pm

      Bibi’s trolling for hatespeech from Iranians. Then he can use the ripest of those responses to further his narrative of how crude, dangerous and untrustworthy Iranians are.

    • tree on July 13, 2015, 5:56 pm

      If I read it correctly, the “Suck…” comment was one Iranian’s response to Netanyahu’s tweet, not the tweet itself. This was one of Nutty’s tweets that Allison mentioned:

      “With the continuation of the show of compromising with Iran, the path to Iran getting a nuclear bomb is paved, and they are being given billions of dollars for terrorism and invasion.”

      • just on July 13, 2015, 6:42 pm

        That’s how I read it, tree.

        (I remain amused :)

      • annie on July 14, 2015, 9:58 am

        ok, thanks.

  3. a blah chick on July 13, 2015, 4:21 pm

    Israel wouldn’t allow the PA to broadcast to their Palestinians but it’s okay for them to tweet to Iranians.

    • just on July 13, 2015, 4:31 pm

      It’s Brand Israel, abc…

      I was wondering the same thing, Annie @ 4:07! It shows up in the tab, but not in the body of the article. Anyway, lol~ ahem. He asked for it, didn’t he?

      (PM with cartoon bombs, insulting cartoons, undisclosed REAL nukes, who makes threats to the people, and advocates for more crippling sanctions… Iranians are NOT stupid people.)

    • montereypinegreen on July 14, 2015, 12:49 pm

      I guess they’re afraid the Iranians will make as big a bunch of fools to the Palestinians as they are making to the Iranians. Sorry, but the Iranians are more civilized that Nutty-yahoo.

  4. druid on July 13, 2015, 4:48 pm

    Netanyahu and his ilk (millions) are sociopaths. And this is unfortunately the state of the world that sociopaths are rife in governments, including our own.

  5. WH on July 13, 2015, 5:42 pm

    Amazing – he didn’t even pretend to appeal to them, he just attacked the country immediately? What an utter clown. What response was he expecting?

    • montereypinegreen on July 14, 2015, 4:39 pm

      He was hoping for something hateful and anti-Semitic that he could use when the Israel Lobby twists the arms of American congressmen to turn down the deal.

  6. Palikari on July 13, 2015, 5:55 pm

    Iranians have Twitter blocked so I don’t think they’ll read Bibi’s tweets. :(

  7. fpm on July 13, 2015, 7:00 pm

    Netanyahu is getting what he deserves. I’m laughing so hard.

    This is not the first time when Netanyahu tried to “communicate directly to the people of Iran”.

    As a prime minister, he can avail himself of services of reputable intelligence agencies. Or google. That what Mossad can uncover in a year and google in seconds”

    Doing his best to provoke and antagonize only so he can complain to the world he’s received death to israel tweets. What an idiot. Who did he think he was speaking to – congress?

  11. ritzl on July 14, 2015, 5:00 am

    Yeah…

    “With the continuation of the show of compromising with Iran, the path to Iran getting a nuclear bomb is paved, and they are being given billions of dollars for terrorism and invasion.”

    Israel in yet another nutshell. A Twitter account ostensibly set up to talk directly TO the Iranian people uses the third person to talk ABOUT them.

    • ritzl on July 14, 2015, 5:05 am

      In a variation of the, “If you’re a hammer, everything looks like a nail.” truism, “If you’re an Israeli, everything (and everybody) looks like (and is) an object.”

  12. CigarGod on July 14, 2015, 9:14 am

    Come on, Hillary…speak up…as soon as your funders load your lip, I mean.

    • montereypinegreen on July 14, 2015, 12:53 pm

      I’m laughing too hard over this. In addition to getting her marching orders from Sheldon Adelson, she has to wait for a reply from the Iranians she can claim is “anti-Semitic.”

  13. Mahmoud El-Yousseph on July 14, 2015, 10:01 am

    Iran has not illegally developed nuclear weapons, whereas Israel has developed an illegal secret nuclear weapons program that has produced hundreds of nuclear warheads.

    Iran has signed the UN Non-Proliferation Treaty. Israel has refused to sign it.
    Israel was the first to introduce nuclear weapons to the M.E.
    Warmongers like PM Satanyahu should suck it up and stop threating to bomb Iran every time the wind blow!

    • just on July 14, 2015, 10:06 am

      +1, Mahmoud!

      “Satanyahu” ~ apt.

      Never mind that Iran has not launched a war for centuries… and has been at the receiving end of much “Western” mayhem.

    • RockyMissouri on July 14, 2015, 11:25 am

      TRUTH..!!

  14. Mahmoud El-Yousseph on July 14, 2015, 10:27 am

    Israel has for the last eight years imposed an illegal and inhumane siege over 1.8 million Palestinians in Gaza, causing unnecessary death, pain, and suffering. In contrast, Iran has sent aid and provided comfort to the besieged Palestinians — the very same thing America did to the Germans during the Berlin Airlift. It is time to boycott ISISrael!

  15. Mahmoud El-Yousseph on July 14, 2015, 11:04 am

    POUR THE WINE & CUT THE CHEESE!

    KEEP SATANYAHU AWAY, PLEASE!

  16. Mahmoud El-Yousseph on July 14, 2015, 12:12 pm

    I wrote this letter few weeks ago in response to hatemongers and disloyal members of US Congress who betrayed their country by giving aid and comfort to a foreign nation (ISISrael) in opposition to the efforts of the Commander in Chief of the United States during Iran Nuclear Negoatiations.

    Maybe senators should give N. Korea a try – The Delaware …

    http://www.delgazette.com/…/Maybe-senators-should-give-N.-Korea-a-try

    The Delaware Gazette on Facebook ; … Maybe senators should give N. Korea a try. … Mahmoud El-Yousseph. Westerville. YOUR VIEW. Contribute.

    Few days ago a 47 disloyal Republican Senators signed an open letter to Iran over the nuclear negotiation expressi ng their strong objection to US president policy and to any mutual agreement signed by him during his tenure. If undermining your president ability to conduct official business is not a treason, I do not know what is.

    Why don’t these Senators get out of the U.S. if they can’t be loyal citizens and put America’ s interest first instead of the interest of their campaign contributors?

    Perhaps North Korea would be to their liking. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would be happy to teach them a lesson about disloyalty and treason by having them thrown into a cage filled with starving dogs and eaten alive.
