Amusing: Iranian judge summons Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg to appear in court

There is zero chance Mark Zuckerberg will show up. 
Via The Hill:
An Iranian judge wants Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg to appear in court and answer questions about privacy protections.
According to the Iranian ISNA news service, a judge in the southern Iranian province of Fars ordered the Silicon Valley titan to testify in response to complaints that Instagram and WhatsApp, both of which Facebook owns, violated people’s privacy.
An official with the paramilitary volunteer force Basij, seeming to speak on behalf of the court, referred to Zuckerberg as “the Zionist manager of Facebook” and ordered him to appear in court “to defend himself and make compensation for damages,” according to a translation from Agence France-Presse.
