Rouhani Ridicules Failed Efforts of ‘Warmongering Zionist Regime’ to Prevent Nuclear Deal
JNS.org – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has ridiculed Israel for its “failed” effort to thwart the nuclear deal, the Iranian leader said in a live televised address on Tuesday.
“Do not be deceived by the propaganda of the usurper Zionist regime,” Rouhani said in a broadcast on Iran’s Press TV, adding that “today major world powers recognized Iran’s nuclear program.”
“The Zionist state has failed in its efforts,” he added, in reference to Israel’s strong opposition to the nuclear deal.
Rouhani continued his remarks against Israel on Twitter in an attempt to calm regional fears over a resurgent Iran.
“To our neighbours: Do not be deceived by the propaganda of the warmongering Zionist regime. #Iran & its power will translate into your power,” Rouhani said.
Israel and many other leading Arab States in the Middle East fear that the removal of economic sanctions on Iran will allow it to providing more funding to terror groups like Hezbollah and to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, leading to further destabilization in the region.
Nevertheless, Rouhani dismissed these claims in his speech, saying that he views the agreement as a “revolution” for the region.
“Today, we are at an important juncture in the history of our country and our revolution and the situation in the region,” Rouhani said.
