The Prophet, blessed be his name, knew very well that alcohol should be forbidden, since those idiots in his region couldn't be trusted to make a decent drink... :D

Maybe it was the 72 virgins label.

As I recall these products contain alcohol.... Maybe it could be distilled....

On a serious note - What is going on in Iran? ZH reports unofficially over 3.5 millions, about 10K officially infected people of 80 million population and 30% of the cabinet ministers are infected yet only 427 officially died? Contrast this with Italy with more than 15K confirmed infected and a 1000 deaths.

1) Belt and Road




2) Doctors were saying there were 50 dead in Qom. Which the health minister denied in a press conference where he was coughing uncontrollably. Later that day he tested positive for coronavirus.

They don't have a good medical system that gives accurate reports. This is typical of third world countries. It should be noted that Iran has a high rate of diabetes because of their fondness of sweet deserts. So this may be the cause of their higher mortality rate plus poor medical facilities.
