Iran has hit back at an Israeli letter addressed to the United Nations that accused the country of sponsoring terrorism.

“The letter, once again, contains a flurry of baseless and unsubstantiated accusations that are leveled against my country without, as usual, a shred of evidence,” Iran’s Ambassador to the UN Gholam-Hossein Dehqani said.

Dehqani said that Israel’s accusations that Iran broke UN resolutions, “is equally baseless and this time amusing too, as it amounts to an innovative in-bulk leveling of accusations against a UN Member State.”

“At least, a regime that has brazenly flouted all UN General Assembly and Security Council resolutions about the lands it criminally occupies is not in a position to broach such a claim against other nations,” he said.

“In addition, it is absurd and hypocritical for the representative of a regime that has occupied the lands of other peoples for so many decades and denied every basic right of the Palestinian people, including their right to self-determination, to accuse occasionally my country of violating international law,” he continued.

Dehqani said that Israel’s accusation that Iran sponsors terrorism is “equally absurd and hypocritical.”

Israel, he said, “has for long been involved in terrorizing and indiscriminately targeting the Palestinian civilians, including women and children, in their own land and in terrorist targeted killings and assassinating individuals in many parts of the world.”

Dehqani said the accusations are “all a typical Israeli attempt to smoke screen their criminal policies and acts against the innocent Palestinians, including keeping including keeping a two-million community under siege for 10 years” in the Gaza Strip.

The Iranian diplomat touched on the Israeli “bombing and shelling residential areas, destroying schools and hospitals, demolishing houses, confiscating dwellings, violating the sanctity of the religious shrines.”

Because most families came from Europe, there is rather no US than no Palestine because these families live there for millennia. Thus anyone who speaks of a Jewish state wants no peaceful coexistence, endangers the existence of Israel and this is anti-Semitic.

What is now Israel+West Bank+Gaza, just 1 century ago was totally under-populated : about 900k-1M people for the whole Mandatory Palestine (!), including 100k Jews who had their roots here for +3000 years while most of the Arabs didn’t originated from the Area bt came from the whole Ottoman Empire in the last 600 years with the clear goal to overwhelm the locals, thus avoiding independentism by swarming. The Ottomans played the same game with ALL minorities, including Kurds, Armenians, Assyrians, etc. And if they didn’t bowed to the Sultan, well, let’s make a little genocide… Moreover, 1 century ago,… Read more »

Well, there is a little point forgotten by Israelis : Hizbullah has abandoned Jihad. Thus, as long they’ll have the destruction of Israel in their charter and they are still labelled a terror organisation by the UN and, although it has decreased a lot, shell into the Israelian territory, as they get strong support from Iran for 3 decades, well… Now, the inflammatory rhetoric from prominent Iranian mullahs or IRGC guys also call for the destruction of Israel. Maybe would it be high time to consider stopping stupid t*t for tat games and act a little more adult on both… Read more »

Watch the following link too. Must be interesting for you. Also read its comments. Google “Israelis Are Not Jews and American Leaders Are Not Christian” and find it on Youtube to be able to read the Jews and Christians comments.

Solution- Kick the ‘Palestinians’ out to Jordan, where they belong, because they are Jordanian after all. Iran should also stop sending money and weapons to Lebanon and only then will Israel consider stopping counter measures.

PLO officials had stated this, Wasdazu : “The ‘palestinian’ people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a “Palestinian” people since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct “Palestinian people” to oppose Zionism. For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa while as a “Palestinian”, I can undoubtely demand Haifa, Jaffa,… Read more »

In other terms, Kit is -mostly- right about Palestinians, this is common knowledge! Thus, there are a lot of Egyptians, Tunisians, Lebaneses, etc. It’s a mixed ‘people’, moreover, the UNWRA things maks they inherit their refugee status from parents and UNWRA pays 3 times what HCR does per refugee, BUT it passes through the PA first… In other terms, this is a GIANT scam to pump money from the UN!

I forgot : 85% of Jordans are “Palestinians” as Jordan was also “Mandatory Palestine” and the cutted part initially made to be ruled by ‘Arab-Palestinians’. Zahir Muhsein wasn’t talking bullshit : all this mess is a concerted strategy between mostly all Arab countries to simply torpedo the creation of Israel by any mean and this was fuelled by extremists like al-Husseini who, at the time, was probably the most known guy in the Arab world, hey, there was no TV, only radio and this guy talked every day on the radio! He was as known as Oprah in the US… Read more »
