Lebanese researcher Jihad Saad, the Director of the Global Documentation Center, said in an August 29, 2020 interview on Al-Alam TV (Iran) that the police in the United States are carrying out an official policy of killing black people so that white people can have face masks, which he said are in short supply in America. He said that the Americans are in essence good people, but that the American regime is a savage, racist, and criminal neo-liberal regime. Saad added that President Trump is ready to wage a civil war, and that the weakening of the American system is in the best interests of the American people and the entire world.

Jihad Saad: "The police in America carries out an official policy. The official policy says that since they do not have enough face masks, the blacks should die so that the whites can get the masks. This is the level of their racism. It reaches the point of killing black people in public. After a while, we see that the police or the justice system summoned [the killer], and later he is released on parole or gets a reduced sentence, and nobody remembers what happened to this policeman who killed the black person.

[...]

"The American people are good people. They are good in essence. Some white people marry blacks without any problem or complex."

Interviewer: "True."

Saad: "Such a thing does not happen even among some Arabs. We must distinguish between the ordinary people, who grow up in a tolerant, diverse, and pluralistic society, and who truly believe in pluralism, diversity, human dignity, and human rights… We must distinguish between them and the system. This is a savage, racist and criminal neo-liberal regime. It is not only racist but also criminal. Trump is now ready to wage a civil war in order to save… Even the civilians who went out to protect the police were armed. The weakening of this system is not only in the best interest of the Americans, but also in the best interest of the entire world."
