Iran's Majlis mulls banning Samsung products over insulting teaser

submit to reddit

A senior lawmaker says Iran’s Majlis is considering a plan to cut off the country’s economic transactions with South Korea’s Samsung in reaction to the company’s anti-Iran teaser.

Head of Majlis Energy Committee Arsalan Fat’hipour said the double-urgency plan, aimed at imposing a complete ban on buying all Samsung products, would make the company regret making the insulting teaser.

South Korea’s giant manufacturer of electronic devices and home appliances produced a teaser shortly after the assassination of the Iranian scientist Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan by Mossad agents in Tehran, in which Iran had been depicted as a primitive society.

The clip also implies that Israel is powerful enough to easily destroy Iran’s nuclear facilities or assassinate the country’s nuclear scientists.

The Iranian lawmaker added that forgetting the high volume of its trade with Iran, the company has produced the teaser to curry favor with Israel.

Fat’hipour said Samsung’s apology to the Iranian nation, though necessary, would not be enough and that the company must be held accountable for producing the teaser.

Meanwhile, Samsung’s Dubai office has issued a statement condemning the production of the teaser by the company’s Israel office.

Samsung’s public relations official in Tehran, Elaheh Taheri, told reporters on Thursday the clip had nothing to do with the South Korean company and that it had been produced by an Israeli cable TV station, Hot.

    i believe it has nothing to do with south korean company since they’re not much interested at knowing irans or nuclear weapon arming in Iran, in face north koreans ever had relationship with Iran with arms dealing.. the electronic manufacturer like samsung has no relationship with harming people in Iran.

    hi, I’m an Iranian, I had no problem with israel, but now I take it personal, not only business!
    let me rephrase that if someone goes to natanyaho house, (i don’t know if he has a girl)then act a fake way, completely opposite, not even respecting human being, then how you want us do not fight for our lands against israel!
    in other word if israel and our government have any problem, solve it but not attacking our culture, we are a society whom is always under pressure when I hear a little kid cry, all my body and my mind start shaking just because of thinking a moment why?!
    but now i know why? (do you like know too?)
    yes, if i today can think like this tomorrow with something like move (HOT, God damn HOT company)I am nothing!

    remember Samsung managers if i was in your shoes, (you apologized, right!) but it is NOT seriously enough, you attacked us, if you just had left the place, Iranians believe you, that you are good guys, but NOT NOW! do something!
