“The Newtown massacre was the result of an Israeli conspiracy” an Iranian news website proclaimed Tuesday.
The United States is still reeling from the murderous rampage that left 20 children and six adults dead in Newtown, Connecticut, on Friday. Tehran – which on Sunday offered its condolences to the victims and their families – is now promoting an alternative explanation to the horrific event.
Iran’s Press TV website quoted Michael Harris, former Republican candidate for governor of Arizona and GOP campaign finance chairman as saying that “An Israeli death squad was involved in the Sandy Hook shooting.”
According to the report, Harris called the Newtown tragedy a “terrorist attack,” adding that it was “Israel’s revenge” and that it was meant to “teach the US lesson,” following the Palestinian’s status upgrade in the UN.
According to the report, the shooter, Adam Lazna, was meant to be the scapegoat.
Press TV failed to note where Harris was interviewed. The website also dubbed him an “intelligence analyst,” but the GOP member has no known ties to the intelligence community in the US.
