Iran’s President: Support for Israel Is ‘Western Racism and Colonialism’

via PBS

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi has referred to support for Israel as a manifestation of “racism and colonialism” during a meeting with the top diplomat of Niger.

Raisi attempted to draw a comparison between French colonialism in Africa and the existence of Israel to garner support for Iran’s jihadist cause.

Iran is a major donor to Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), Hezbollah, and other terrorist groups seeking the destruction of Israel.

“The leaders tackled latest developments since the start of Operation Al-Aqsa Flood and the events that followed on all fronts including the confrontations across the border between Lebanon and the occupied Palestine,” the Hezbollah “media relations office” announced.

“In a meeting with Foreign Minister of Niger Bakary Yaou Sangare, held in Tehran on Wednesday, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi highlighted the Western governments’ hegemonic policies in modern history,” Iran’s Tasnim News Agency relayed, paraphrasing Raisi’s comments.

“He noted that the crimes the Zionist regime [Israel] is currently committing against the Gaza Strip and the supports from the Western states for these Israeli atrocities lay bare the true image of Western racism and colonialism.”

Hamas, Hezbollah, and PIJ held a joint leadership meeting to plan an “all-out victory” against Israel.

Raisi also praised the coup in Niger and promised Iranian cooperation if sought.

Iran has been condemning Israel’s actions and threatening attacks against the country.

The state-run Iranian propaganda network PressTV quoted Raisi as describing support for Israel as the “naked face of racism and colonialism.”

“He was referring to the US and its European allies throwing their weight behind the Israeli regime in its ongoing war of aggression on Gaza.”

“Being strong and resilient in the path towards reaching goals and protecting unity and solidarity are the key to success in achieving independence and freedom,” he declared.

“The continuation of the Zionist regime’s crimes (in Gaza) and the direct support and backing from certain countries would further complicate the situation and could make other actors intervene in this arena,” the head of the Iranian Armed Forces, Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri, said.

Raisi celebrated the beginning of “the termination of Israel” in response to the bombing of a Gaza hospital by Palestinian Islamic Jihad, a jihadist terror group.
