I saw your video of Dr. Javad Zarif. He works for a despicable regime and speaks very well at an Ivy League school. He's American educated and knows how to present to an American audience.But read this

He repeats these principles the length and breadth of the country, castigates "Western decadence," promises "the strictest interpretation of the religious laws of Shari'a." Internationally recognized conventions on women's rights are for him "a fatal offense against the values of Islam." This is not so much a devout Muslim speaking as rather one who knows that he is in possession of the one, the pure truth. The masses follow him.
How can Dr. Zarif condemn Israel about "expansionist, repressive and state-terror policies" when Iran supplies terrorist organizations like Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah who are not part of Iran but have murdered hundreds if not thousands outside Iran's borders?
Here's Dr. Zarif before the U.N. Security Council July 31, 2006:
"This trend has reached such a horrendous and indeed ridiculous state that the
Israeli regime, a non-member of the NPT, whose nuclear arsenal coupled with its
expansionist, repressive and state-terror policies and behavior is repeatedly recognized as
the single most serious threat to regional and international peace and security, finds the
audacity to cry wolf about Iranâ€™s peaceful nuclear program and to lead a global campaign
of threats, lies, deception, pressure, blackmail and outright extortion."
