Iranian TV Calls Harry Potter 'Zionist Plot'

If you can say nothing else about J.K. Rowling, it's that she really knows how to irritate religious people:

Iranian state television has come to the conclusion that Harry Potter is a Zionist plot. The documentary, which you can watch here, features several "experts" discussing the wildly popular series of books and movies.

One of the experts quoted in the documentary says that Harry Potter is part of a "cultural crusade" and through the movies "they [Zionists] are indirectly saying: 'join us.'"

Scooter: What Zionist thinks HP promotes Wicca?

Larfin: As crappy as Bush was, I don't think any members of his government ever came out against any piece of fiction.

Unlike our Iranian friends who have previously been enraged by the terrible influences of the likes of Tom and Jerry.

I would love to speak Farsi in order to be able to watch Iranian State TV.

I find it funny that Iranians think HP promotes Zionism while Zionist think HP promotes Wicca while Wiccans say "Guys that Sh@t is fiction"

Saying Harry potter Promotes Wiccan beliefs is like saying Star Trek promoted Atheism.

seekshelter:- You're not alone. My mum reckons our kids shouldn't be reading them. Me - I trust our kids to have some idea of what's real and what isn't.

To me the irony the believers in one set of one fictional stories complaining about another set of fictional stories is too much and I have to leave the room before I laugh too rudely.
