Iran launched hundreds of drones and missiles at Israel on Saturday in response to a deadly attack on the Iranian consulate in Syria earlier this month that killed 12 people, including Mohammad Reza Zahedi, a senior commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards.

“When we shouted that they were killing Iranian women for not wearing hijab, where were you?” Le Bon asked. ‘Where were you when they lynched Iranian men from cranes for protesting? Where were you when we explained that it was a terrorist occupying force?’

“But suddenly everyone has graduated from Instagram’s law school and is saying it’s a violation of international law and that Iran has the right to defend itself,” she said.

Le Bon then blasted these supporters as “not a friend of the Iranian people” and for endangering the lives of Iranians and others by supporting the Islamic Republic’s “ongoing aggression.”

“It is you who want war with Israel, it is your hatred of Israel and your hatred of the Jews that is drawing us into a war that we did not ask for,” Le Bon said, addressing those who support the Islamic Republic.
