Iran Foreign Minister Accuses Netanyahu Of “Fake History” And “Bigoted Lies”

RT News       Posted Mon., Mar.13, 2017

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif accused Benjamin Netanyahu of resorting to “fake history” and of “selling bigoted lies” about Iran after the Israeli Prime Minister said Iran had been trying to “destroy” the Jewish people for some 2,500 years.

The row started over a video address by Netanyahu to Jewish children on the holiday of Purim. In it, the Israeli PM read from the Book of Esther in a synagogue in a town of Caesarea, northern Israel. According to legends, Esther, who was the Jewish queen to the Persian king Ahasuerus, thwarted a genocide of Jewish people.

Purim is a traditional Jewish holiday that marks the saving of the Jewish people from Haman, a vizier in the ancient Persian Empire.

“In Persia, they wanted to kill us but it didn’t work,” Netanyahu said. “Today, too, Persians are trying to destroy us, but today, too, it will not work.”

Netanyahu’s comments did not go unnoticed by Iranian authorities. On Sunday, Zarif tweeted that Netanyahu is “resorting to fake history and [is] falsifying Torah” …in order to “sell bigoted lies” against Iran.

The Israeli PM “not only distorts the realities of today, but also distorts the past — including Jewish scripture.”

“It is truly regrettable that bigotry gets to the point of making allegations against an entire nation which has saved Jews three times in its history,” he said.

“The Book of Esther tells how Xerxes I [Persian king who lived in 5th century BC] saved Jews by a plot hatched by Haman the Agagite,…. during the time of Cyrus the Great [6th century BC], an Iranian king saved the Jews – this time from captivity in Babylon; and during the Second World War, when Jews were being slaughtered in Europe, Iran gladly took them in,” he said.

Last week, Netanyahu similarly spoke out against Iran during a meeting with the Russian President Vladimir Putin, saying that Persia has been trying to kill Jews since 2,500 years ago.

“Today there is an attempt and the continuation of Persia, Iran, to destroy the Jewish state,” Netanyahu added.

Putin then noted that “we now live in a different world” and suggested discussing actual up-to-date problems in the region.

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
