There’s nothing funny about the tragic killing of George Floyd. But some Middle East regimes are doing their best to turn its aftermath into what can only be described as a duplicity-soaked comedy skit.
Take, for instance, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, who tweeted:
“Some don’t think #BlackLivesMatter. To those of us who do: it is long overdue for the entire world to wage war against racism. Time for a #WorldAgainstRacism.”
Some don’t think #BlackLivesMatter.
To those of us who do: it is long overdue for the entire world to wage war against racism.
