TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The latest surveys and polls in the US indicate that the American public opinion has palpably shifted against the apartheid Zionist regime, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Nasser Kanaani said.
Kanaani made the remarks in a series of tweets on Sunday, days after a University of Maryland Critical Issues Poll found that 44 percent of Democrats and 20 percent of Republicans believe Israel is a “state with segregation similar to apartheid.”
“A look at public opinions in the US – the godfather of the fake Israeli regime – and the latest comments and opinion polls indicate a tangible change in attitudes towards the apartheid nature of this regime,” the Iranian spokesman said.
In the survey, conducted from 27 March to 5 April 2023 among 1,203 respondents, 41 percent of Democrats said they support the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
The BDS movement seeks to challenge Israel’s decades-long occupation and abuses of Palestinian human rights through boycotts similar to the successful boycott campaigns of apartheid South Africa, Press TV reported.
“Certainly, there will be more surprising results about the nature and existence of the fake Israeli regime in the case of expanded free speech against the Zionists, the United States’ freedom from the grip of the Zionist lobby, and further extensive and independent surveys of the American people,” Kanaani added.
“The US public and the elites have the right to seek an answer to the question why the US administrations sacrifice the interests of their people and those of the so-called ‘allied’ countries and nations for the sake of the usurping, apartheid, undemocratic and decaying Zionist regime,” he added.
