Zarif: US leaders ruining region, betraying own people to protect Israel
IRNA

Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the US leaders, who have been providing all-out support for Israel, have not only ruined the West Asia region, but also betrayed their own people.

Zarif made the remarks in a Thursday tweet in clear allusion to recent comments by US President Donald Trump, who said during a rally in Winston-Salem, North Carolina on September 8 that the US was not involved in the Middle East for oil, but because “we want to protect Israel,” Press TV reported.

Bragging about America’s energy independence during the rally, Trump said, “While I’m president, America will remain the number one producer of oil and natural gas in the world. We will remain energy independent. It should be for many, many years to come. The fact is, we don’t have to be in the Middle East, other than we want to protect Israel. We’ve been very good to Israel. Other than that, we don’t have to be in the Middle East.”

Pointing to Trump’s remarks, Iran’s foreign minister tweeted, the “latest admissions by @realDonaldTrump” clearly showed “where his family's loyalty really rests.”

Zarif then recalled Trump’s past confession that the United States has spent more than seven trillion dollars on its presence in the Middle East, which is apparently aimed at nothing, but to protect the Zionist regime, asking, “Why SEVEN TRILLION hard-earned US taxpayer dollars & so many American lives have been sacrificed” just to protect Israel?”

He then concluded by saying that in their effort to provide unbridled support to Israel, American leaders who put the Tel Aviv regime ahead of all other priorities, “have not just ruined our region,” but “they've betrayed their own people, just for votes.”
