Iran has blamed US, Israel, Jews for coronavirus

The Iranian regime has been blaming the US and its allies, particularly Israel, for the country’s coronavirus crisis, according to evidence presented in a report from IranWire written by Shaya Lerner and David Andrew Weinberg.

As of Sunday, 3,603 in Iran have died from coronavirus, and there are 58,226 confirmed cases. The Iranian regime has been accused of mishandling its response to the coronavirus outbreak in the country, including deliberately covering up details of the outbreak to maximize turnout in parliamentary elections.

The Islamic Republic’s highest authority Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei had initially said that the coronavirus outbreak is “not that big of a deal.” However, as the outbreak has worsened in the country, high-ranking officials regime officials have since shifted their narrative to blame the US and Israel.

Khamenei blames US for virus

The latest IranWire report highlights the Iranian regime’s various attempts to divert the blame for the outbreak of COVID-19 to the US or Israel.

On March 22, Khamenei said in a speech that Iran will not accept any US aid against coronavirus given it is “accused of producing the virus.”

Khamenei also spoke of “demons” conspiring against Iran on live TV. This part of his speech was omitted from state news agencies.

“There are enemies who are demons, and there are enemies who are humans, and they help one another. The intelligence services of many countries cooperate with one another against us,” Khamenei said.
