The Death of an Iranian Frankenstein is not a Human Rights Crime.
Okaz, November 30, 2020. "How can they condemn the killing of a man who devoted his life to making a sinister bomb for an evil regime, but they do not condemn Iran's killing of innocent people in the region. Iran kills Syrians, Iraqis, and Lebanese, and destroys Yemen, and sponsors all terrorist groups." Al-Hameed, Saudi author Okaz, November 30, 2020. "Disrupting the Iranian regime's access to nuclear weapons is a long-term service to humanity." Iran... sees nuclear weapons as a tool "that enables it to occupy the rest of the world." Mohammed Al-Saaed, Saudi political analyst, Okaz, November 30, 2020. "We are talking about a gang that hijacked Iran, and its defeated people became its captive. It seeks to hijack the entire region, fueled by intense hatred for the Arab. Is it acceptable to allow it to produce nuclear weapons and use them to kill millions of people?" Mohammed Al-Saaed, Saudi political analyst, Okaz, November 30, 2020.
If there is one thing that we Israelis and our moderate Arab neighbors agree on it is this.
It is troubling to us in Israel, and our regional neighbors, to hear so many European and American voices mourning the loss of this monster, some calling his death a criminal act and a human rights crime.
This man was working on a weapon of mass destruction for an evil regime seeking world domination.
They need to be told that what this man was doing was, in itself, a human rights crime worthy of delivery to the International Criminal Court.
Those who condemned his demise joined with Hezbollah, Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Turkey, Qatar, and the Assad regime in Syria, which clearly shows what side they are on in mourning the loss of a nuclear Frankenstein.
Fakhrizadeh's death was no more a human rights crime than was the removal of Iranian Quds Force Commander, General Qasem Soleimani, killed by a US strike outside Baghdad Airport in January 2020, or that of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, killed by an elite American strike force in October 2020.
These same European and American mourners deny, despite clear evidence, that the Iranian regime has been surreptitiously inching its way to the bomb, and not so surreptitiously developing the heavy impact precision missiles that will carry death on a massive scale. They are already delivering them in large numbers to their Middle East proxies.
It is time those who should know better come out of their woke stupor and do something about it, before Israel has to do it for them.
