This editorial, or “analysis” from the Islamic Republic News Agency offers a look into the distorted lens through which Iran views the present conflict between Israel and Hizballah. Their twisted version of reality would be endlessly amusing if it weren’t the basis for policies and aspirations that pose such a threat to the rest of the world.
Israeli attempts to destroy the Islamic resistance of Lebanon overnight turned to a full-scale war Israel has unleashed against innocent civilians of Lebanon.
The occupying regime of Israel used taking two Israeli soldiers as captives by Hizbollah as a pretext to embark on aggression on Lebanon from the air, ground and the sea.
The occupiers in Tel Aviv thought that they would implement the plan for destroying Hizbollah within three or five days and make preparations for other targets against regional states.
But, the Zionist occupiers did not know that Lebanese resistance movement enjoys popular support. They did not know military power of Hizbollah and were not aware of their own capability as well.
They have admitted after two weeks of heavy and destructive bombardment of Lebanon that they could not attain their goals despite heavy price they paid for their savage attacks.
Now, the Zionist regime’s military and political people have begun to criticize each other for such a failure to the extent that American media have disclosed the differences in the occupied territories despite [the fact that] Israel had appealed for censorship of the news about Lebanon conflict.
Israeli so-called political people say that the military officers have not provided them with accurate information and have dragged the occupying regime to a war with dark future bringing mishap for the Zionists.
In contrast, the military people describe the political people as lacking enough courage to press ahead with great targets!
The feedback from confrontation of resistance movement of Lebanon with the armed-to-the-teeth military of the occupying regime has surprised the observers.
The Zionist regime enjoying billions of dollars worth of military supplies of the US and Britain every year has now drawn to a desperation.
The international community should fulfill its obligation to end the current crisis which may engulf other areas and find regional and international dimensions.
The international community has realized that it should stop bloodshed in Lebanon and the only way out of the current tragedy is establishment of an immediate ceasefire.
The United Nations and majority of the countries are calling for ceasefire, but, the United States and Israeli leaders are opposing.
So… they’re desperate for a ceasefire, but they’re opposed to a ceasefire… and Iran wants that same ceasefire that Israel is “desperate” for as well, because Israel is losing. Gotcha.
This indicates the real nature of the US and Israel.
