“He’s a butcher, no doubt about it,” says Iranian-born Jewish Middle East analyst Meir Javendanfar.
In remarks delivered in a pre-recorded video, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi denounced Israel and the American sanctions regime, gloated over the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, and insisted that Islamic religious law prohibits nuclear weapons.
Israel’s Foreign Ministry responded to the address saying, “Raisi continues to fool the international community in a speech filled with lies and cynicism.”
Iran expert Meir Javedanfar assessed Raisi’s speech.
