Zarif: Those that Behead Speak English, Funded by US Allies Not Iran

Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” when asked about Iran’s continuing support of terrorism, Iranian Minister of Foreign Affairs Mohammad Javad Zarif claimed those that behead “speak English or French with native accent,” and are funded not by Iran, but by “U.S. allies.”

Zarif said, “It frightens me to see that the people who are beheading innocent human beings speak English or French with native accent. This is not a local menace. It is not a regional menace. This is a global menace.”

When asked about Iran sponsoring terror in other areas with Hezbollah financing and other terror groups, Zarif said, “The realities on the ground in the Middle East—probably those who are now beheading innocent individuals wreaking havoc in our region, none of them are financed by Iran, but instead by U.S. allies.”
