Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has resorted to fake history and falsified the Torah to sell lies against Iran. Zarif made the statement on his official Twitter account on Sunday in response to claims by Netanyahu that Iran had been trying to “destroy the Jewish people” for the past 2,500 years, Press TV reported.  “To sell bigoted lies against a nation that has saved Jews 3 times, Netanyahu resorting to fake history & falsifying Torah. Force of habit. Once again Benjamin Netanyahu not only distorts the realities of today, but also distorts the past—including Jewish scripture. It is truly regrettable that bigotry gets to the point of making allegations against an entire nation which has saved Jews three times in its history.” Netanyahu made the claims in a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Friday. He was referring to a legend commemorated through the Jewish holiday of Purim. While scholars do not agree on the accuracy of the Purim story, Netanyahu has constantly referred to the legend as the basis of his anti-Iran stances.
