Iran’s foreign minister, Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, went onto Twitter to tell John Bolton that it was Saudi Arabia, and not Iran, that murdered 3,000 Americans on 9/11, as we read today on Newsweek:
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted a clip Wednesday of White House national security adviser John Bolton at the conservative Young America’s Foundation, where he touted President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw last year from a 2015 nuclear deal with Iran. Bolton argued the agreement “failed utterly in preventing the mullahs from obtaining a nuclear weapon” — using a term that refers to an educated holy man in Islam, but often used pejoratively among the right-wing in the West — and argued that “any country that chants ‘Death to America’ and ‘Death to Israel’ will not be allowed to have nuclear weapons.”
Zarif accused the U.S. of hypocrisy as the Trump administration attempted to support Saudi Arabia in building its nuclear program, tweeting: “Kill 3,000+ Americans but remain a US client and you can have nuclear weapons — even get help in acquiring them.” The statement is a likely reference to the fact that 15 of the 19 Al-Qaeda-affiliated hijackers involved in the 9/11 attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people, the vast majority of which were U.S. citizens, were Saudi citizens, and other alleged links between Riyadh and jihadi groups that target Washington’s interests.
“But refuse to bow to #B_Team ‘s whims,” he added, citing a phrase he has coined to describe Bolton and the heads of Israel, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, “you can’t even possess peaceful nuclear energy. It apparently matters not that ‘Iran is killing ISIS’ while US’ clients arm it.”
