TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman hit out at Europe for its “stunning” captivity to Israeli lobby groups, adding that the 27-member bloc has failed to stop the Tel Aviv regime from violating international law.
“Stunning is Europe’s captivity to Zionist lobby. Europe has historically failed to stop Zionist regime’s violation of Intl law (i.e. Palestinians’ suppression, lands’ annexation) committed in the name of Israel security. Why afraid of ‘referendum’ in Palestine as a lasting solution?” Seyed Abbas Mousavi tweeted on Friday.
The comments came in reaction to a recent spate of propaganda by Western media about a poster that appeared on the website of Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei proposing “referendum” as the best way to end Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories and the final solution to the issue of Palestine.
Since the publication of the poster on Ayatollah Khamenei’s website on Wednesday, some Zionist-sponsored international media have been trying to draw an analogy between the term “the final solution” on that poster and the Nazi idea of extermination of Jews during World War II.
Some Western and Zionist officials also moved fast to come up with such baseless charges, most prominent among them being US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who went as far as threatening Iran with destruction.
