Israel has deep pockets in USA & Global Media’, Shah: FM Qureshi’s remarks in CNN interview not anti-Semitic: FO

Foreign Office spokesperson explains that the remarks of Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood on Israel has been interpreted wrongly.

After the recently conducted interview of Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood with CNN anchor Bianna Golodryga, Mr. Shah confronts criticism on social media that he was passing anti-Semitic remarks by any stretch of the imagination. But FO spokesperson of Pakistan extended a detailed explanation that the remarks of Mr. Shah have been misunderstood and misinterpreted.

Furthermore, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi’s opinion during his recent interview with CNN cannot be “construed as anti-Semitic by any stretch of imagination”, Foreign Office spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said on Twitter Friday afternoon.

His feedback appeared after social media criticism over FM Qureshi’s remarks during his interview with CNN anchor Bianna Golodryga. The anchor shared the interview on Twitter and accused the FM of making anti-Semitic comments.

“Any twist given to his {Shah Mahmood Qureshi’s] remarks would unfortunately prove the very point he was making,” the FO spokesperson wrote.

“The right to freedom of expression must be respected equally by everyone,” he said.

FM Qureshi had lashed out at Israel for controlling the media and having “deep pockets”.

“Israel is losing out,” Qureshi said in the CNN interview. “They’re losing the media war, despite their connections…The tide is turning,” he had said.

“I will not justify any rocket attacks…and I cannot condone the aerial bombardment that is taking place,” Qureshi said, describing Israel’s attack on Hamas as genocide, ethnic cleansing and war crimes.
