Iran Gloats: ‘Crisis at Heart of Zionist Regime Deeper than Crisis in Its PM’s Heart’
With Israeli society increasingly fractured over the country’s democratic character and future, Iran on Sunday, July 23, mocked the Jewish state’s troubles while also joking at the expense of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his health problems.
“It is reported in the news that doctors have used a battery for the heart of the prime minister of the Zionist occupation regime,” the spokesperson for Iran’s Foreign Ministry, Nasser Kanaani, tweeted in Farsi, referring to the revelation that a pacemaker had been implanted in the premier following a potentially life-threatening cardiac event.
“But it is clear that the crisis in the heart of the Zionist regime is deeper than the crisis in the heart of its prime minister,” Kanaani added.
This was not the first time the Iranian Foreign Ministry has weighed in on the political crisis in Israel lately and implied that it may be a harbinger of the impending demise of the Jewish state.
In a tweet on July 14, Kanaani commented on clashes between protesters demonstrating against the Israeli government’s judicial overhaul and police: “For many years, the occupying and criminal Zionists tried to make their fake regime appear as the most democratic entity in the West Asian region.” (TOI / VFI News)
