Iran often likes to tout its ambitions to “liberate” Jerusalem. But one brave Muslim journalist decided to put their national mission to the test.
Al Jazeera reporter Faisal Al-Qasim, hosted Iranian diplomat Tamir Musawi in an interview. During the back-and-forth, Al-Qasim grilled Musawi and pressed his guest by hypothetically asking what the Islamic regime plans on doing once it “liberates” Jerusalem.
But the question was somewhat of trap as the host revealed that after the disasters that Tehran caused in cities like Baghdad, Damascus, and Beirut, those surveyed by the Al-Jazeera would rather Iran not get their hands on Jerusalem.
