Iran has passed new legislation banning its citizens from using WhatsApp because it is owned by “American Zionist Mark Zuckerberg.”

The announcement came two months after Facebook bought WhatsApp, for $19 billion.

The reason for the WhatsApp ban is because Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is an American Zionist, Abdolsamad Khorramabadi, head of the country's Internet Crime Committee, said. People now fear that applications like Viber, Tango, Instagram, and Facebook, could be banned next.

Zuckerberg is Jewish, but he is not known to be a strong supporter of Zionism. Iran strictly controls the use of social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, especially since the unrest in the country following the presidential elections several years ago.

Although Iran’s current president, Hassan Rouhani, bills himself as a moderate, he still approved the recent WhatsApp ban.

The first time that the man attacked his daughter he was extremely intoxicated. He threatened his daughter with suicide if she didn't have sex with him.

The following day, he said he was sorry for what happened, and warned her not to tell anyone about it. However, he didn’t stop the abuse. During some of the attacks, the father told her that she reminded him of his dead wife.
