Zarif praising a criminal leader of Hezbollah and laying flowers on his grave on behalf of Rouhani

Javad Zarif, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the clerical regime, whom some western circles present as moderate, in a letter to Hassan Nasrallah in memory of Mustafa Badreddin, a criminal leader of Hezbollah, the Lebanese branch of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, called him “a great and a tireless man” and “full of passion and epic in defense of righteous ideals of Islam”. Zarif’s deputy, Abdollahian, on the order of Rouhani took part in his funeral as the head of a political and security delegation.

Mostafa Badreddin, who has countless terrorist acts in his record over the past 35 years, is one of the people responsible for massacre of half a million defenseless Syrian people notably women and children and rendering another 12million of them homeless on the order of the clerical regime’s leader, Ali Khamenei. He was being tried for participating in the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri by the the International Criminal Court.

Four days earlier, Rouhani, President of the religious fascism ruling Iran, described the Iranian Revolutionary Guards atrocities “everywhere in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine” as “courage and heroism of commander Soleimani”.

In July 2015, in meetings with Syrian dictator in Damascus and Hassan Nasrallah in Beirut, Zarif praised them for “fighting terrorism” and coordinating for suppressing and killing Syrian people. In January 2014, he paid tribute to Imad Mughniyeh, Mustafa Badreddin’s predecessor, and laid a wreath on his grave.

These events leave no doubt that portraying a diplomat-terrorist like Zarif as a moderate by any government or party has no other reason than justifying deals with the mullahs’ fascism and giving concessions to this regime at the expense of Iranian people and resistance whose result is complicity with the regime in suppressing the Iranian people and paving the way for its unbridled terrorism and warmongering in the region. This policy of course cannot save the regime from its inevitable overthrow by the Iranian people and resistance.
