Iranian Media Accuse the Jews of Engaging in Sorcery

Iranian official and regime-related media accuse the Jews of engaging in sorcery and employing it against Iran. On March 7, 2013, the Iranian news agency RasaNews.ir posted an article about sorcery and numerology in Jewish mysticism. It claimed that the Jews cherish a knowledge of sorcery, which is based on the Old Testament, and pass it down from generation to generation, believing that it can be used to control mankind, nature and even God's decisions. On April 20, Mullah Mehdi Taeb, a member of Khamenei's inner circle, said in a talk at a religious seminary in Ahwaz that the Jews are the most powerful sorcerers in the world and that they use their powers to attackIran.
