BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 P.M.) – The spokesperson for the Iranian Foreign Ministry, Abbas Mousavi, considered the sympathy expressed by Washington and Tel Aviv to the Lebanese people over the recent tragedy at the Beirut port to be hypocritical.

He said: “If America and Israel are truly sincere in their sympathy for Lebanon, they should lift the sanctions they imposed recently on the Lebanese people.

Mousavi continued: “These two systems were not at all honest, contrary to what they claim, and the Lebanese government and the Lebanese people knew the truth of these two systems and with God’s help, Lebanon will witness the return of stability and peace in light of the help of Islamic governments, Muslim peoples and other countries of the world, and they will not need hypocritical assistance from the Israeli entity and usurper Americans.”

On Tuesday, a massive blast rocked the Lebanese capital, killing over 130 people and wounding an estimated 4,000 others.

Since the explosion, more than 300,000 have been displaced from their homes due to the damage caused by the blast at the Beirut Port.

If Iran was really sincere with Lebanon, it would stop interfere in Lebanon’s domestic politics by funding/arming a political party and a militia with international terrorist activity that has grown as big as Lebanese army and has started a war w.o. even asking Lebanese govt. approval, a war that fücked up 20% of the country’s economy and an UNSC res.1701 which ordered the disarmament of all Lebanese militias, the only one not complying being the Iranian puppet… How funny the representative of a Shia theocracy speaks about hypocrisy while the Shia sect even brags about its use of taqiyya (deception).… Read more »
