Rodong Sinmun Accuses U.S. of Conniving at Israel's Terrorism

Pyongyang, December 30 (KCNA) -- When the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) of Palestine made a surprise attack on Israel on October 7, the U.S. authorities branded it as terrorism and made a fuss about it.

It was reported that Israel recently launched a missile attack on the outskirts of Damascus in Syria to kill a military advisor of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps of Iran.

If the U.S. has a single criterion for defining terrorism, it should have labeled Israel's such illegal atrocity as terrorism.

But the U.S. feigns ignorance.

Commenting on this, Rodong Sinmun Saturday says that the U.S. is the root cause of all misfortunes and evils as it has employed such double standards that any attack on it and its lackeys is terrorism but any strike on those incurring its displeasure and rivals is not terrorism but a just act.

Massacres are being committed by Israel under active patronage and support of the U.S., the commentary says, and goes on:

The U.S. persistently connives at and shields Israel's terrorist acts. This is aimed to push the stooges to further complicate the Mideast issue and to expand and consolidate its dominion over the region by taking advantage of it. When the Mideast crisis broke out, the U.S. dispatched a large number of troops to the Middle East and is going to commit new state-sponsored terrorism against Iran and other "thorns in the flesh".

Anger of Iran has reached the height as another high-ranking military officer was killed by Israel's terrorism, like the previous murder masterminded by U.S.

The situation in the Middle East has been pushed to the worst phase by Israel's action that broke Iran's patience.

A bigger powder magazine may explode in the Middle East. Such grave situation is attributable to the U.S. and its followers obsessed with strength-almighty conception. -0- (Juche112.12.30.)
