1938 Alert: “Asefi: Zionist regime will burn in the fire started by itself,” from the Islamic Republic News Agency, with thanks to Sr. Soph:
Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi here Sunday said that the Zionist regime will eventually burn in the flame of the fire started by itself.
Asefi made the remark while speaking to domestic and foreign reporters in this week’s briefing session as he pointed to the recent attacks launched by the Zionists on the Gaza Strip, during which they kidnapped a number of Palestinian officials.
Turning to the extremely bitter incidents in the occupied lands, he said that the inefficient and wrong policies of the Zionist regime accounted for them.
The Foreign Ministry spokesman said that the Zionist regime is enraged seeing `the free elections in Palestine and taking charge of affairs by the popular government-elect’, after which it has taken `insane measures’.
He said that the new crisis started after innocent individuals were kidnapped and taken hostage by the Zionist regime.
Stressing that `the moves of the Zionist regime are against any international criterion’, he dismissed the pretext for such measures and said that the regime itself took inhuman measures.
He referred to `the growing isolation of the Zionist regime on the international scene’ and `the continuity of resistance of the Palestinian people as other reasons for their fury.
Asefi said that given the Zionists intend to damage the economy and infrastructure of Gaza Strip, the international community should pressurize them to avoid disrupting the flow of relief aid to the Palestinian people, including food, medicine and fuel.
What a dissembler. The Israelis handed over the economy and infrastructure of Gaza to the Palestinians, including the greenhouses that were worth many millions. The Palestinians destroyed the greenhouses and used Gaza as a base for jihad attacks on Israel. If they had not done so, would Israel have done anything to the economy and infrastructure of Gaza? Of course not.
