Iranians Hit Back at Trump Following Zarif’s ‘Never Threaten an Iranian’ Comment
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Responding to the US President Donald Trump’s weekend Twitter message threatening Iran, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif hit back Monday with a message of his own, which was supported by thousands of Iranians: “Never Threaten An Iranian.”
Drawing attention to Iran’s long history of standing in the face of aggressors, from Alexanderto the Mongolian emperor Genghis Khan, Zarif tweeted that Trump, “goaded” by the B-team – (Bolton, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, and the crown princes of Saudi Arabia and the UAE, Mohammed bin Salman and Mohammed bin Zayed) – “hopes to achieve what Alexander, Genghis & other aggressors failed to do.”
“Iranians have stood tall for millennia while aggressors all gone,” he continued. “Economic Terrorism & genocidal taunts won’t ‘end Iran.’”
“Never Threaten An Iranian,” Zarif tweeted. “Try respect – it works!”
Since then Iranians poured to the social media platforms to express their support for Iranian Foreign Minister comment about Iran’s long history of resistance against aggressors.
