The Iranian education system has found some particularly creative ways of teaching children about the strategic objectives of the Islamic Republic. Their pedagogical approach is to hold a celebration in which children launch “missiles” at the Zionist enemy.

Some 650 of such “missiles” were fired at Israel shortly after Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called upon his Syrian counterpart Bashar Assad to respond to any Israeli provocation and “to put an end to this once and for all.”

An Iranian internet site reported Monday that a “symbolic” competition was held on the 31st anniversary of the Islamic Revolution. Hundreds of pupils gathered in order to launch paper airplanes at Israel.

Sixteen groups of students from the north of the country competed to launch “missiles” at their bitter enemy from their paper airplanes.

According to the report, the competition was held at the local university in the town of Babolsar, which is in the Mazandaran province.

“We also had a hard time believing it at first after reading the headline, but then we noticed that the article is real,” wrote the Iranian site that reported on the peculiar competition.
