Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi is gaining praise on social media for his interview with CNN on Thursday with bold statements on Israeli aggression in Palestine and Gaza.

The CNN host Bianna Golodryga had accused Pakistan’s Foreign Minister of anti-Semitism.

In his opening statement, he said that the public pressure was changing the tide and the ceasefire would be ‘inevitable’ in this case, added, ‘despite Israel’s connections.

On this, the host interjected, ‘what are their connections’ she asked him.

The reply to this became the controversial news cycle being debated among the Twitterati. Mr. Qureshi explained Israel’s connections by a laugh off followed by the words, “deep pockets”.

Ms. Golodryga then asked, “What does that mean?” and Pakistan’s Foreign Minister replied, “They are very influential people”, adding that “they (Jews/Israel) control the media”.
