Iran Tells UN That Israel Has Started 15 Wars, Supports ISIS
Iran responded to Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech at the UN last week with some brand new lies that I’d never heard of before (video here).
According to a UN account:
The representative of Iran, speaking in exercise of the right of reply, said the representative of the Israeli regime had made unfounded allegations against his country.
The nature of [the Israeli] regime was founded on aggression, occupation, suppression, violence and terror, he said, adding that in the information age, “weapons of mass deception” (which the Iranian representative called “another type of WMD” that Israel has) were becoming more useless day by day.
According to Iran’s representative:
[The leader of Israel] could have explained why his regime had invaded all its neighbours, and even countries outside its region, waging 15 wars in its short lifetime. Why did [the Israeli] regime continue to disrespect resolutions adopted by the Assembly, the Security Council and other United Nations bodies … and why was it a State sponsor of terrorism, including support for ISIL (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant) with arms and other military assistance.
The UN representative then added that Israel:
was the world’s last apartheid regime and the warden of its biggest prison, arresting and jailing Palestinians and imposing an inhumane blockade on the Gaza Strip. [The Iranian representative] went on to ask why that regime, the only nuclear weapons possessor in the Middle East, lectured the world on non-proliferation and Iran’s peaceful nuclear programme. [The Iranian representative said that] the representative of the Israeli regime had hypocritically tried to abuse the Assembly by accusing others and stirring anxiety about the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, he said. It was a regime that favoured conflict and war over diplomacy, he added.
All par for the course for the UN. (And all emphasis added).
