Iran releases Ayatollah-approved messaging app to replace banned Telegram – with emoji featuring women in hijabs carrying ‘Death to America’ placards

Oh, the irony.

It’s laughable that the world’s leading state sponsor of terror, whose stock in trade is hatred of America, Jews, and the West, steals and uses all of our technology and innovation (then calls it its own). This is typical of Islamic conquest throughout history. Conquer, steal, claim ownership.

Iran has released a new home-made messenger app that includes emojis featuring women in hijabs carrying ‘Death to America’ placards.

‘Soroush’ has an extensive set of emojis that display veiled women holding political messages – including the death to Israel and Freemasons.

The app was released to replace the popular messaging service Telegram, which is reportedly being pushed out from being used in the county.

It comes after it was largely used in communications during the 2017 anti-government protests due to its strong security.

The controversial new app – with similar features to WhatsApp – has received the blessing of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

He has already deleted his profiles on Telegram and is encouraging other users to join him on Soroush instead.

But some Iranians aren’t so easily swayed.

One suggestion being circulated on social media so far stating that Soroush’s three-tick message receipt notification (compared to the two ticks on WhatsApp and Telegram) shows that an intelligence officer is intercepting the messages.

The app is reportedly available in English – which is surprising considering it makes the offending emojis easy to find.

Iran’s Supereme Cyberspace Council has banned public institutions from using foreign apps.
