In his great book, Treacherous Alliance - The Secret Dealings of Israel, Iran, and the United States, Trita Parsi tells an Iranian joke, but it needs a little context.

While Iran was faced with Israeli accusations of funding Palestinian terror, the Palestinians themselves complained about empty Iranian promises. Parsi explains that "it was easier for Iran to offer rethorical rather than practical support. The Iranians slogans were rarely followed up with concrete actions, even after the outbreak of the second Intifada . ... A joke in the streets of Tehran reflected Iran's pretense:"
