Iran's leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Saturday, via Twitter,  that Israel had high expectations of former prime minister Ariel Sharon, but instead claims he led to the intifada.

"The Zionists’ all hopes relied on this vulture (Ariel #Sharon) to bring down the rising nation of #Palestine to their knees."

"He (#Sharon) was their last hope. However from the first day when he came into power, the #Palestinian Intifada gained in flames."
