“This terrible terrorist crime is an additional proof that the culture stemming from the Zionist enemy is deeply tied to the racism of its leadership”
Hezbollah released on Monday a statement condemning the recent attack in Norway committed by a right-wing extremist who supports the Zionists that left at least 70 people dead as a proof of the racism of Zionist culture.
“This terrible terrorist crime is an additional proof that the culture stemming from the Zionist enemy, or ideas that support it, is deeply tied to the racism of its leadership,” a statement released by the party said.
In several online postings, Anders Behring Breivik, the confessed perpetrator of the attack, promoted fiercely anti-Islamic and far-right Zionist views, calling for “the deportation of all Muslims from Europe” as well as from “the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.”
“Concerning this assault, standards differ within the international community and positions are taken based on the identity of those accused of terrorism. If they were Muslims, then their culture and society would be condemned, whereas if they were close to Zionists, justifications and excuses would be sought,” it added.
Hezbollah said attempts to overlook the incident’s link to Zionist terrorism would encourage further attacks.
At least 70 people died in a shooting Friday at a summer school meeting organized by the ruling Labor Party on Utoeya, an island outside Oslo, while seven were killed when a powerful bomb ripped through Norway’s capital, Oslo, where the government’s headquarters are located.
