Adviser to Iranian President: "This Religious Group has inflicted the Most Damage on the Human Race."

He must be talking about the occult. However, this is from the mouth of an adviser to the crackpot Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. This means we all know to which "Religious Group" Mohammad Al Ramin is referring.

The link will take you to MEMRI's translation. It's probably just MEMRI up to no good again as they confirm Juan Cole's theory that MEMRI just focuses on radicalism and uses it to paint a generic extremist view of the Arabs and Persians. Then again, maybe the Arabs and Persians really are extremists.
"'Historically, there are many accusations against the Jews. For example, it was said that they were the source for such deadly disease as the plague and typhus. This is because the Jews are very filthy people. For a time people also said that they poisoned water wells belonging to Christians and thus killed them,' Ramin said.

Must have been "truthiness day" in Rasht.
