Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei called for Israel’s destruction, stating that the “barbaric” Zionists “has no cure but to be annihilated.”
In a rant posted on Twitter Saturday night, the religious leader called on Palestinians in Judea and Samaria to arm themselves and rise up against Israel.
Using the hashtag #handsoffalaqsa, in reference to the recent violent tensions on the Temple Mount, Khamenei’s recent incitement is one of many attacks targeting the Jewish State.
“The barbaric, wolflike & infanticidal regime of #Israel which spares no crime has no cure but to be annihilated,” Khamenei wrote.
“West Bank should be armed just like #Gaza. Friends of Palestine should do their best to arm People in West Bank,” another Tweet stated.
“We’ve seen 100s of times that #Israel doesn’t abide by #peace. They didn’t even tolerate Arafat who cooperated w/them& poisoned him to death,” Khamenei accused.
This is not the first time Khamenei has called for Israel’s destruction. Khamenei has called the Israeli government “the most wicked terrorist” in the world.
At one point on Twitter, the Supreme Leader accused Israel of having “no limit or boundaries regarding viciousness, cruelty and trampling underfoot all human standards and ethnics. Crimes, genocide, mass destruction, the killing of children, women and the homeless…they take pride in.”
In July, during the 50-day conflict between Israel and Hamas, the Supreme Leader issued a call to arm Palestinians in Judea and Samaria.
In August, at the conclusion of the war, the Islamic Republic vowed to “accelerate” the rearming of Palestinian Arabs in the region. “We will accelerate the arming of the West Bank and we reserve the right to give any response,” stated General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh, Sepah News reported.
In September, Major General Gholan Ali Rashid, Iran’s Deputy Chief of Staff, revealed that many of its soldiers were operating “in the field” alongside Palestinian terror groups in Gaza, Judea and Samaria.
The latest rant comes days after reports revealed that US President Barack Obama sent a secret letter to Khamenei indicating that cooperation on combating ISIS will depend on the final agreement regarding Iran’s nuclear program.
