Saddam Hussein's Intelligence: 'Pokemon is a zionist plot'

I can't stress enough how funny the following quote is:

In a memorandum from 2001, the Iraqi General Intelligence Service reported to the Presidential Palace that the animated series "Pokemon" was very dangerous to Iraqi youth because of its sweeping popularity. "The meaning of the name 'Pokemon' in Hebrew," the intelligence people added, "is 'I am a Jew,'" adding that the series - a Japanese creation - was aimed at corrupting Iraqi children without anyone noticing.

More comic pure gold, here.
