Zionists and American Jews invented the coronavirus: Antisemites continue to spread blood libels

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, antisemites are out in full force.

Iran’s Press TV, the regime’s English-language propaganda, has been pushing antisemitic conspiracies about the coronavirus to distract from the mullah regime’s mishandling of the pandemic.

“So, the United States is run by lunatics, by psychopaths who are entirely capable of launching World War III by way of a biological warfare attack on China and Iran, with the Iran component presumably led by Israel. That’s the most likely explanation for what we’re seeing”, reads the Press TV analysis of the coronavirus.

The depths of the Jew-hatred of the mullahs was underscored by Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi, who declared that Iranians must not use any vaccine or medicine developed by “Zionists.”

The leader of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard terror group commander Salami told people the virus was “biological warfare” derived from the US. “We are now dealing with a biological war,” he said. He argued it “may be the product of American biological warfare.”

Blood libels about Jews having a sinister role in global pandemics goes back at least to the Black Plague, when, during the period from 1348 to 1355, there were attacks on Jewish communities which were scapegoated for the epidemic.
