Iranian foreign affairs expert Mohammad Ghaderi said in a March 5, 2023 show on Ofogh TV (Iran) that International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) director Rafael Grossi is a Jew and that he had only been elected to the position because he had the support of the Zionist lobby.
Mohammad Ghaderi: "[IAEA Director Rafael] Grossi is an Argentian diplomat. He is also a Jew. When he arrived at the scene and was elected as head of the IAEA, he had the full support of the U.S. government – which was the Trump administration – and the personal support of Mike Pompeo himself. He had the backing of the Zionist lobby.
"Even though his rival had more votes before the election took place, he was eventually elected due to the heavy lobbying on his behalf."
