Iran’s PressTV finds pro-Assad protesters in Tunisia
I found this report from Iran’s PressTV to be amusing:
Tunisians have held a demonstration in the capital, Tunis, in protest against the presence of foreign-backed militants in Syria, Press TV reports.
Politicians, students and human rights activists as well as the family members of young men recruited by foreign-sponsored armed groups in Syria gathered in front of the foreign affairs ministry building to voice support for Damascus.
The protesters slammed foreign countries for “interfering” in Syria’s internal affairs.
“Qatar is the base for this Zionist project. It is financing terrorists while Saudi Arabia is arming them. They are killing innocent civilians in order to empower Israel and its allies,” a protester said.
The demonstrators also called for the resumption of diplomatic ties between Tunisia and Syria.
“The Zionist imperialistic project is clear. Israel and its allies want to divide the Muslim world and to occupy Syria, but this scenario will never happen. We call for the return of the Syrian ambassador to Tunisia,” the Popular Committee to Support Syria’s Khadija Belhaj said.
Another demonstrator asked the Syrian government to release his mentally-retarded son who was recruited by militants in the Arab country.
Demonstrators also expressed their support for resistance against Israel.
“Iran, Hezbollah, and Syria are the last line of resistance against the Zionist enemies. Israeli conspiracy will not break the will of freedom fighters…,” Tunisian scholar Mohamed Abdel Adhim said.
Those Qatari and Saudi Zionists strike again!
It is telling that Iran’s major rhetorical weapon is still using anti-Israel feeling, clueless that most Arabs have higher priorities nowadays.
Notice also that Hamas is off Iran’s list of “resistance” to Israel. It is only a matter of time before they are considered Zionist as well.
