Iranian TV airs anti-Israel video titled ‘COVID 1948’
In the latest expression of the centuries-old comparison of Jews to viruses, a recent video on Iranian TV equates Israel to the coronavirus and calls on "the freedom-seeking countries of the world to join hearts [to] rid the world of this virus forever.”
(June 4, 2020 / MEMRI) Iran’s Channel 2 TV aired a video last month titled “COVID-1948,” comparing Israel to the coronavirus.
In the video, which aired on May 22, the narrator says that the world has been shocked that virus has prevented children from going out to play, while Israel has been bombing hospitals and killing children.
It is clear in which “lab” Israel was created, says the narrator, and adds that becoming stronger and increasing solidarity and unity can defeat Israel just as it can defeat COVID-19.
