On June 14, a few dozens members of Iran’s pro-Israel terrorist organization MEK and their local Jew sympathizers protested at Oslo international airport against Iranian foreign minister Dr. Javad Zarif’s visit to Norway to open the so-called Oslo Forum by a speech along with European Union foreign policy chief Frederica Mogherini, Norwegian foreign minister Borge Brende, and of course Israeli poodle John Kerry.
The protestors were holding crossed-photos of Dr. Zarif and banners denouncing Iran’s support for the Syrian president Assad, and Israel-hating Hamas and Hizbullah. One banner had the cry: “Norway should speak out publically against human-rights abuses in Iran.” Another declared: “Rouhani and Zarif being “moderate” = Myth.”
The leaders were invited to express their views on how to bring peace to the region. Strangely, the FM of the regional villain was not invited to address the forum.
“If anyone uses extremism as an instrument or purpose will be loser in the end; every one considers the fight against terrorism and extremism from his own perspective, the problem has not only a military or political or economic solution, but also intellectual and cultural solutions to figure out why extremism is so attractive to people,” Zarif said.
Underlining the need to redefine international issues, Zarif said “if we take a look at issues from a different point of view, we may get an image to solve the problem; the US thought Iran’s every centrifuge is a step to get to the bomb; we were not convinced of their claims and wanted to use our natural right; the US was not eligible to decide for us.”
“This led to the wrong definition of the problem in a way as if there is no solution for it; while its true definition could lead to a peaceful solution,” he underlined.
Dr. Zarif added that if someone wants supremacy by military means, the opposite side will do the same; both sides are losers in pursuing military solution, one more and the other less.
John Kerry in his 45-minutes speech whined about regional terrorism supporters such as Russia, China, Syria, Hizbullah, Palestinian, al-Qaeda, ISIS, Boko Haram, al-Shabaab, al-Nusra, etc. – but not a single word about Israeli terrorism. He also mentioned losing his sleep on the recent Orlando gay club shooting.
“There are so many different pieces of this: Kurd, Turkey, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Shia, Sunni, Assad, and opposition, proxy components, that it is challenging. But again, if we can get a cease-fire which the UN Security Council Resolution 2254 calls for, and actually hold it, we have a prayer to try to actually get to a place where we can talk about compromise. So, my friends, time and again all of you have seen what’s possible when we focus,” Kerry said.
John Kerry admitted that the “struggle” to create a Syria without president Bashar al-Assad by militancy has failed. He also boasted his services to Israel by saying: “And on the diplomatic front you have the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, which reduced the security threat posed by a country’s movements towards a nuclear weapon. It makes the world safer while opening up the opportunities of possibly more engagement with the Iranian people and Iran with the rest of the world.”
John Kerry ended his speech by praising Muhammad Ali.
“And those who suggest that resolving one conflict or another is impossible should remember the words of Muhammad Ali: Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world that they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare,” Kerry said.
Peter Jenkin, former UK’s ambassador to the IAEA said in a recent interview that Tehran should lodge a complaint against Washington for not fulfilling its obligations under its nuclear agreement with Iran (here).
