Philip Hammond took to the airwaves this morning to praise Iran’s “more nuanced approach” towards Israel, in response to critics of his attempts to rebuild relations with the theocratic regime. How is that whole “more nuanced approach” going?

“We support resistance in Palestine and the region, and take all possible means to support anyone who fights Israel, is against the Zionist regime and supports resistance.”

Perhaps that “more nuanced approach” simply involves Fajr-5 rockets rather than nuclear bombs…
