1. I can understand
Mira ,   Vienna   (02.20.13)
that rats feel comfortable among their kin!
2. The bigest rat goes by the name of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
Haim ,   TA   (02.20.13)
3. Rats invading Iranian streets
Roxy ,   Israel   (02.20.13)
I'm shocked that they are not blaming Israel and saying that the rats are spies!
4. Mossad-trained rats holding fake dual Aussie passports?
Ned Ferks ,   wagga   (02.20.13)
5. Rats in Iran :
Barbara ,   Haifa Israel   (02.20.13)
First rats, then locusts, floods, no food, sudden unexplained illnesses - you get my drift - it happened in Egypt a long time ago.
6. Probably a great work of the MOSSAD ..
David ,   Israel   (02.20.13)
That's what they will say .... the Iranians .
7. Please, make my day
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.20.13)
Tell me that these rats carry plague-infected fleas and are rabid. No wonder they find Iran so hospitable. This is what happens when you push a nuclear program when what you should be doing is building a basic sewage infrastructure. I wonder if imaginary "medical isotopes" are useful in the treatment of hydrophobia and Bubonic plague.
8. Comic plot
Mordejai ,   S. America   (02.20.13)
They said: “seem to have had a genetic mutation, probably as a result of radiations and the chemical used on them". It really seems a comic plot. May be they escaped from the uranium. LoL.
9. Mutant Sewer Rats
Tim ,   Brighton   (02.20.13)
And the Mutant Sewer Rat in Chief..Nasrallah
10. Seriously?
TC   (02.20.13)
Is this article for real or is this April's Fool?
11. Re no 1 Mira
AAj ,   UK   (02.20.13)
Dearst Mira, judging by your post the Rats most defintly have more in common with you than the good long suffering people of Iran, get a life.
12. Rats chasing rats
Daniel ,   Neteherlands   (02.20.13)
And all the rats will end the same way
13. Okay, but FIRST shoot Khamenei and the
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (02.20.13)
Ape man and not the sweet rats...!
14. "They are now bigger and look different"
Zvi   (02.20.13)
"Rats" sounds like IRI regime code for "dissidents."
15. #13. Has a point
Tim ,   Brighton   (02.20.13)
By linking the rats to Ahmadinejad and Nasrallah..isnt it a definite insult to the......Rats?
16. Very scary
paul ,   Nairobi, Kenya   (02.20.13)
if i where the Iranian environment minister this will be a state or Region emergency to exterminate the source of where the big rats are procreating and a lot of prayer
17. #15, Tim you are right, I apologise to the sweet

18. The first of the new plages again our enemies.
NATAN ,   ISRAEL   (02.20.13)
G.od the one and only. Always with us.
19. Ha ha so funny big rats and Naz!
ky   (02.20.13)
joking and stupid insults aside this is worrying. Rats bigger than cats ! For one thing we need to think about what too much fast food is doing to the environment everywhere. For another,the realization will soon come even to all the mindless posters who think this funny that we are living in a small world. One big meteorite just a few thousand miles closer than the other day could put an end to us all
20. This is a true ,democracy. Prsident's family
NATAN ,   ISRAEL   (02.20.13)
can walk al around the country without bodygards Nice.
21. How many rats must be martyred before UN intervention?
NudNik69   (02.20.13)
22. new enemy: Huge rats
joe ,   uk   (02.20.13)
23. Dam, Tzefardea, Kinim, etc.
Barry ,   USA   (02.20.13)
24. Rats in sewers
For once they can actually blame Israel for something. Israeli engineers designed and constructed the Tehrani sewer system in the 1970's. At the same time why is this news in an Israeli newspaper? Again this propaganda mess is ridiculous.
25. #12. Daniel, it takes one to know one.
Persian CAT   (02.20.13)
26. RATS
Get Real ,   UK   (02.20.13)
There they go again bragging they've got bigger and better rats than anyone else. Best to get the monitoring unit in to see the reason for this outbreak. as radiation was mentioned. Monkeys and rats, Iran has got it all. Is Morsi aware of this?
27. To: No. 25
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.20.13)
That would CERTAINLY explain why giant mutant rats are hanging out with the mullahs in Iran ..... I guess it does take one to know one!
28. 10lb rats mentioned in 1980s article
Nabuquduriuzhur ,   Oregon, USA   (02.20.13)
When I was in high school in the mid 1980s, Iran was mentioned as having a species of desert rat that was as much as ten pounds. I'm glad these gigantic things haven't spread the way that the Norway Rat and the Black Rat, that are both common in U.S. cities.
29. This Confirmes The FILTH In tehran
Vermin Invading Vermin Who Would Of Thought? They Deserve 40 lb rats Maybe They Can Naw thru fordo and chew on the centrifuge wiring?
30. To: No. 28
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.21.13)
Desert rats do not inhabit sewers, and the reason they are called "desert rats" is because they avoid urban areas. You may be thinking of the jerboa or the vole, but they don't reach ten pounds.
