“Zarif responded overnight on Twitter, calling Netanyahu’s comments ‘bigoted lies’ and saying Iran had saved the Jews on three occasions in history.”

Just as Putin said to Netanyahu, “We now live in a different world. Let’s talk about that now.” Yes. In today’s world, Iran has repeatedly vowed to destroy Israel, wipe it off the map. Zarif’s self-righteous hectoring of Netanyahu doesn’t change that.
