Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the US Congress on Tuesday,   recalling the story of Purim in which Persians tried to wipe out the Jews.

Today, Iranian Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is trying to wipe out the Jews, he said. "He spews the worst kind of anti-Semitic hatred. He tweets that Israel must be destroyed."

He rejected Iran's claim that it opposes Israel only, and not Jews, by quoting Iranian ally Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah: "'If all Jews gather in Israel, it will save us the problem of chasing them around the world.'"
