Richard Silverstein Defends Iranian FM’s Use of Word ‘Kike’

Must read


Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has been slammed for doing Iranian minister things, namely getting his antisemitism on

Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif came under fire after using an antisemitic slur and jokingly wishing the United States would cease to exist in an interview earlier this month.

Zarif used the word “juhood” – a derogatory term for Jewish people in the Persian language – when asked about Tehran’s position toward Israel and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in an interview with an Iranian journalist Mehdi Nasiri which was posted online on December 9.

“I cannot imagine any circumstances under which we would officially recognize Israel … What is our solution? [Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei] has stated the solution. It is not throwing the juhood into the sea, or a military attack … The supreme leader has said what the solution is … Our solution is a popular referendum,” Zarif said.

Zarif’s use of the word “juhood” sparked backlash after the Washington-based Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) posted parts of the interview with English subtitles.

Naturally, his response was the tried-and-tested “I was misinterpreted” defense

In response, Zarif said his use of the word, which he acknowledged is of a derogatory nature, was misinterpreted.

“MEMRI has sunk to a new low in taking my pejorative usage of a word to accuse me of Antisemitism. I was mocking the allegation that Iran seeks to ‘throw the Jews into the sea’ and reiterating our solution is a referendum with participation of ALL: Jews, Muslims, Christians,” Zarif said on Twitter on Wednesday.

It is rather clear he’s full of Shiite.

Enter anti-Israel DouchebloggerTMRichard Silverstein, who never met an evil Iranian leader he wouldn’t defend

Of course, it is no wonder Silverstein would defend Zarif’s use of the word ‘kike.’ He is a constant guest on Iranian-controlled Press TV, so for all we know, he is on their payroll.

I know of at least one person, though, who will appreciate this
